Careers

We’re building a diverse team of professionals passionate about climate action. Join us!

The CLF team is growing to deepen our internal expertise and create new opportunities in the rapidly changing fields of climate mitigation, climate policy, and carbon accounting for the built environment. We are a passionate and friendly group of experts with backgrounds in engineering, design, business, policy, environmental science, education, and communications working together to develop science-informed and politically actionable solutions for climate change.

We believe that climate solutions for the building sector will need all of our skills and perspectives to be successful. The CLF takes an intersectional approach to climate justice, industrial emissions, building materials, and construction that requires dynamic and diverse teams. All CLF positions provide opportunities for learning, professional development, and continuing education.

We are committed to building a healthy and inclusive work environment for all researchers, staff, and students on our team. The Carbon Leadership Forum is based at the College of the Built Environment in Seattle Washington, but we operate as a distributed office and many of our positions are remote-friendly.

Current job openings are posted below. You can also sign up for our newsletter or visit the CLF Community to get updates on all present and upcoming positions.

 

Parametric Open Data (POD) LCA Cohort Hire

Thanks to a new research initiative from the Department of Energy’s ARPA-E program, the Carbon Leadership Forum will investigate the science and methods of carbon drawdown and storage, and develop a robust LCA framework and ecosystem of tools that can support the flow of data on novel materials into robust, comparative Whole Building Life Cycle Analysis (WBLCA) tools.

Learn more about this frontier research and our plan to hire a cohort of three new staff members to support this project.
