adelphi is the leading independent think-and-do tank in Europe for climate, environment and development. We are some 280 strategists, thought leaders and practitioners working at the local and global levels to find solutions to the most urgent political, economic and social challenges of our time. As a policy consultancy, we support a just transition towards carbon neutrality and sustainable, liveable societies. Our work is grounded in transdisciplinary research, evidence-based consulting and stakeholder dialogues. With these tools we shape policy agendas, facilitate political communication, inform policy processes and support decision-makers.
Join us and you can expect to work on topical issues that connect the worlds of science and politics, in collaboration with policymakers and practitioners around the world. Contribute your ideas and expertise as part of our interdisciplinary, international project teams, and benefit from a collaborative working and learning environment with flat organisational structures.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for the 21st century, not least in view of the risks it entails for peace and international security. Adelphi has been working on climate-fragility risks for many years, in cooperation with the German Foreign Office and many other ministries, governments and international organizations. We are looking for creative and dynamic personalities who want to help shape political processes in this domain at the national and international level.
As a Senior Advisor, you will take responsibilities across many fields – from preparing international dialogues to developing new thematic angles on the issue. You will lead research, conceptualize and draft analyses of risks and potential solutions on climate security and climate diplomacy and support policy-makers in identifying entry points for implementing and communicating promising approaches.
As a colleague in our Climate Policy team, you contribute to the strategic orientation and further development of our services; you manage and write successful proposals and participate in other business development activities; you guide and advise junior team members; and you exchange with your colleagues on a regular basis to continuously advance our team’s expertise, quality of services, and team spirit.
