Post Date: 8/26/2022
Opportunity Type: Job
Organization/Grantor: California-China Climate Institute
Position/Title/Fund: Climate Policy Fellow
Deadline: September 21, 2022
Location: Berkeley, CA

The California-China Climate Institute is seeking to hire one Climate Policy Fellow. UC Berkeley's California-China Climate Institute (CCCI) is led by former California Governor Jerry Brown in partnership with Xie Zhenhua, China’s Special Representative for Climate Change Affairs. The Institute receives guidance and support from expert policy and operations staff, business, academic and climate advisory committees and a governing board of top university and government officials. The Institute also works closely with other UC campuses, departments and leaders. Launched in September 2019, this groundbreaking initiative was established to spur further climate action through joint research, training and dialogue in California and China, with the goal of informing national policy makers and promoting the implementation of climate solutions at all levels. The fellow will work with CCCI on climate change policy issues in California, China and beyond. The focus will be on long-term climate goal-setting, and actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience, and projects may also cover multi-state and international topics. Specific research areas will depend on the fellow's background and interests, but will likely include: carbon neutrality, carbon pricing, electric vehicle deployment, industrial decarbonization, and nature-based climate solutions. The fellow will collaborate with project partners at other academic institutions, in state government, from the business and nonprofit communities, and other stakeholders.
