To support our team in Berlin we are looking – as soon as possible – for a
Fellow with expertise in climate policy with focus on political science
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!
- You will work on climate policy projects at national and European level – especially on the aspect of governance.
- 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 will lead smaller projects yourself and manage larger projects in cooperation with experienced project leaders.
- You communicate project results to the respective target groups and represent the Ecologic Institute at political and scientific events.
- You have completed an academic education in political science with a master's degree.
- You have professional experience (3 to 6 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 expert knowledge of German and European climate and energy policy. In depth knowledge of governance aspects is a plus.
- You have proven excellent methodological and analytical skills in qualitative analyses – skills in quantitative analyses 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:
