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.
LCA Data and Methods Researcher
CLF develops applied research to inform and enable designers, policymakers, building industry practitioners, standards developers, and others to reduce life cycle emissions of buildings and infrastructure. This position will contribute to the development and application of emerging research related to building-sector LCA tools, data, and methods that support reporting, evaluation and reductions of carbon emissions from buildings and infrastructure. The position will include project management, development of guidance documents and educational resources, and outreach to support carbon reductions in the building industry. The Researcher will work collaboratively in an integrated team with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, policy, environmental science, and materials science. Experience with life cycle analysis in the building sector is required. This position will play a key role towards enabling a broad network of key decision makers from industry and policy to radically reduce the embodied carbon emissions associated with buildings and infrastructure.
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.

Investigador de políticas
CLF supports policymakers at the local, state and federal levels, primarily in the United States, to develop, implement, and scale embodied carbon reduction programs. This position will be responsible for leading research and engaging diverse stakeholders to support the development and implementation of cross-sectoral climate policies targeting embodied carbon reductions in buildings and infrastructure. Candidates must have a thorough understanding of the building and construction sector and life cycle assessment (LCA). A detailed level of knowledge on the development and use of Environmental Product Declaration (EPDs) is desired. While not required, we are especially interested in candidates who have experience applying policy analysis and knowledge of climate change drivers directly towards building and industrial sector decarbonization policies. This position will play a key role towards informing high-impact embodied carbon policies including but not limited to “Buy Clean” procurement policies and building codes.

Estamos formando un equipo diverso de profesionales apasionados por la acción climática. ¡Únete a nosotros!
los equipo CLF is growing to deepen our internal expertise and create new opportunities in the rapidly changing fields of climate change 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 aspires to take 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.
