Summary

American Progress has an immediate opening for a Research Associate in its Energy and Environment department to conduct research and analysis related to climate, transportation, and energy policy. The ideal candidate will have strong writing and research skills, an attention to detail, a commitment to addressing climate change and economic and environmental injustice, and a willingness to work on a wide range of policy issues.

The position will report to the Director of Domestic Climate and Energy Policy. Experience in climate and energy policy is not required.

This role will be driven by American Progress’ mission to improve the lives of all Americans through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action, with the aim of not only changing the conversation, but changing the country. The Research Associate will be part of a dynamic department that supports work across American Progress’ five crosscutting priorities:

  • Strengthening health and ending the pandemic
  • Building an economy for all
  • Tackling climate change and environmental injustice
  • Advancing racial equity and justice
  • Restoring social trust in democracy

Responsibilities:

  • Conduct and support research and analysis on climate and equity policy issues in coordination with other members of American Progress’ Energy and Environment department, including by conducting research, proofreading, fact-checking, and editing documents.
  • Help develop a range of written products to influence the policy debate on key climate issues, including memos, reports, rapid-response statements, op-eds, and social media.
  • Elicit and provide feedback on written products.
  • Provide research support to members of the Energy and Environment department and draft memoranda for internal audiences.
  • Help coordinate and plan meetings, events, and issue-based coalition work, as needed.
  • Engage in rapid-response research and writing in response to policy developments.
  • Perform light administrative duties, such as helping track publications and timelines; tracking congressional hearings, regulations, and other political developments; and coordinating meetings.
  • Represent American Progress in external meetings with Capitol Hill staff and coalition partners to advance the organization’s work.
  • Help embody a culture of justice, equity, and inclusion by performing tasks with these values at their core.
  • Develop and maintain expertise in assigned areas of responsibility.
  • Perform other duties, as assigned.

American Progress offers full and competitive benefits packages. Candidates from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. This position is part of a bargaining unit represented by IFPTE Local 70 and has a minimum salary of $54,000.

We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and the levels of community spread and adjust plans as needed for in-office work. Any changes to our current hybrid work policy will be communicated at the time of hire. Updates will be posted on American Progress’ Jobs page.
