The Carbon Leadership Forum is growing quickly to support accelerated action to radically reduce embodied carbon from buildings and infrastructure. We are looking for applied researchers who will help develop new knowledge related to the life cycle emissions of building materials and use that information to support policymakers, designers, academics and other key partners. Ideal candidates will complement our existing expertise to ensure that the CLF can continue providing science-informed support where it is most needed.
Primary LCA Researcher
CLF develops applied research to inform and enable policymakers, building industry practitioners, standards developers, and others to reduce life cycle emissions of materials used in buildings and infrastructure. This position will be responsible for leading research and providing technical support to an integrated team with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, policy, environmental science and material science. The researcher will also engage with external collaborators from policy and industry. This role will be responsible for development and application of emerging research related to LCA tools, data, and methods that support reporting, evaluation and reductions of carbon emissions from buildings and infrastructure across the US and globally. The researcher should have professional or academic experience with LCA modeling, and expertise in one or more materials or product systems (e.g. concrete, steel, bio-based materials, agriculture, or energy). Interest and experience in education is applicable, but is not required.
CLF is proud to be hosted at the University of Washington’s College of Built Environments
Staff and student opportunities with the Carbon Leadership Forum, including positions such as research engineers and assistants, program managers, and research scientists are secured through the University of Washington.
