Join our team! GCC seeks graduating law students for Climate Fellowships

Apply by Jan. 22, 2024



The Georgetown Climate Center is seeking graduating JD students for one-year Climate Fellowships starting in September 2024. GCC is offering two full-time, paid positions: the Climate Fellow for Mitigation will join GCC’s efforts to support policies that reduce climate change emissions, and the Climate Fellow for Adaptation will support GCC’s work related to climate adaptation and resilience. Climate Fellowships are open to graduates receiving their JD from an accredited law school no later than May 2024. Applications are due Monday, January 22, 2024.




GCC Climate Fellow: Adaptation Program

The Adaptation Climate Fellow will support our work on a variety of cutting-edge projects analyzing and identifying best practices for how state and local governments are preparing for the impacts of climate change (e.g., sea-level rise, managed retreat, extreme heat, and equitable approaches to adaptation, among other topics). The Climate Fellow will work with GCC staff to conduct research, legal and policy analysis, and writing related to GCC's federal, state, and local resilience work. This includes GCC's place-based work helping states and communities develop climate-informed policies and planning processes, and federal policy developments that affect states and communities. The Climate Fellow will also research and write resource summaries and case studies of states and communities implementing innovative best practices to be included in GCC's online toolkits, Adaptation Clearinghouse, and State and Local Adaptation Progress Tracker. Read the full description and learn how to apply on the GCC website.



GCC Climate Fellow: Mitigation Program

The Mitigation Climate Fellow will support GCC’s work with senior state and federal officials working to advance new federal policies and regulations that will result in equitable strategies for achieving meaningful greenhouse gas emission reductions. This will include conducting timely analysis and supporting facilitation of discussions among government officials implementing federal legislation and initiatives, including the Inflation Reduction Act, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and Justice 40. Fellows provide research and analysis that supports the development of well-informed, equitable policymaking. Currently, GCC is working with federal agency staff; state energy and environment agency officials across the country; and leading academic and policy experts to explore opportunities to reduce emissions from the electric power and transportation sectors. The Climate Fellow will work with Climate Center staff to conduct legal and policy analysis related to this work. Read the full description and learn how to apply on the GCC website.
