To support our team in Berlin we are looking – as soon as possible – for a

Researcher with Expertise in Climate Policy

In a series of projects, Ecologic Institute is looking at the ways in which German and European climate policy can shape the transformation to climate neutrality and the framework conditions needed to achieve this. What goals need to be set – and for whom? What role does strategic, long-term planning play in achieving these set goals, and how should effective monitoring be designed? Who should be involved in the processes, in what capacity and for what purposes? And what is the legal framework in which these aspects are organized and coordinated?

If this piques your interest, the climate team of the Ecologic Institute is looking forward to your application!

Your tasks:

  • You will work on climate policy projects at national and European level.
  • You will independently conduct scientific analyses and prepare the results for the respective target group.
  • You will acquire new projects in cooperation with the team and continue working on existing project strands.
  • You communicate project results to the respective target groups and represent the Ecologic Institute at political and scientific events.

Your profile:

  • You have completed your academic education with a master's degree.
  • You have professional experience (2 to 4 years) in a relevant work environment, for example in environmental policy research and policy consulting, in an association or a civil society organization related to climate and environmental issues.
  • You have knowledge of German and European climate and energy policy. You are familiar with governance or with progress measurement and indicators.
  • You have proven excellent methodological and analytical skills in qualitative analyses and/or quantitative methods.
  • Experience in organizing and facilitation of events are a plus.
  • You enjoy working both independently and in a team, and show enthusiasm for working in an interdisciplinary and international environment.
  • You have a very good command of German and English, both written and spoken.

What we offer:

  • You will work in a leading international environmental policy think tank that develops solutions for the most pressing environmental policy challenges of our time. You will work in a scientifically sound and politically independent manner - in constant exchange with experts and decision-makers from the fields of politics, research, business and civil society.
  • In our international team, you will experience a pleasant working atmosphere in a flexible and family-friendly environment with flat hierarchies. Working mobile is an option.
  • You will work on projects independently and responsibly, and strengthen your profile in the field of climate protection and governance. In doing so, you can build on the Institute's excellent references and networks.
  • We will guide you and open up space for creativity and further training opportunities to deepen your expertise and develop your professional skills.
  • We offer you an employment contract with appropriate remuneration initially limited to two years with the intention of a long-term contract.
