Sr. Urban Planner - Sustainable and Resilient Cities
RTI - Durham, NC
Within RTI's Environment and Health Sciences (EHS) unit, the Urban Planner for Sustainable and Resilient Cities will be a key member of a team responsible for developing our emerging sustainable and resilient cities practice. EHS has many of the technical capabilities required to support sustainable/resilient cities work and requires an urban planner with a demonstrated track record working on sustainable/resilient cities-related projects and developing new business. Responsibilities will include the entire project cycle from identification, marketing, proposals, and contract negotiation to implementation and project management. Key requirements are technical expertise and established contacts/relationships with cities, international organizations and firms working in this space that will allow RTI to successfully compete in this market by bidding on projects, but also working with governments to create projects and solicit funds. Opportunities to work across RTI units and programs for growth and exposure across sectors (i.e., energy, water, food and agriculture, waste, climate change adaptation and resilience, low emissions development) will be provided.
