adelphi’s Carbon Markets and Pricing Team is one of the world’s foremost knowledge hubs supporting the global spread of carbon pricing as a key tool to reduce emissions cost-efficiently. We provide research and public policy advice on the design and implementation of carbon markets and carbon pricing instruments in projects funded by governments, and international and development organizations such as the World Bank, the EU Commission, GIZ and UNDP. We also staff the secretariats of the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) and the Global Carbon Pricing Challenge (GCPC), thereby facilitating and shaping cooperation and experience exchange around carbon taxes, emissions trading and voluntary carbon markets worldwide. The coming years promise to be an exciting and pivotal time for carbon markets, as ever more countries actively prepare to establish carbon pricing instruments and companies engage with rapidly growing national and international carbon offset markets.
At this time, we are looking for an experienced climate or energy policy specialist who can co-lead our dynamic, international team of 15+ analysts alongside our existing team lead. Work location is Berlin with the possibility of working partially remotely. While there is a preference for applicants who will work full time, an 80% FTE may be considered. The position is initially limited to 2 years. If the cooperation is successful, we will have a strong interest to transform it into a permanent position. Diversity is important to us. For a sustainable future, we need a diversity of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and should a suitable candidate be found earlier, the ad may be withdrawn earlier than the application deadline on 29 February 2024.
