The Oxford Net Zero Engagement Team is Hiring

Feb 11, 2022

The Oxford Net Zero engagement team is growing with two job posts open now:

  • A Net Zero Standards Manager working to improve the integrity of net zero claims on the path to net zero. Now is a critical time for this work as standards are emerging and the post holder will have the opportunity to help shape and align though leadership to support voluntary initiatives, businesses, and governments. For this post I am seeking an highly organised masters level individual with a strong interest in sustainability, and a passion for engagement.

 

  • A Research Associate for Net Zero Business Solutions. The successful candidate will work with a team of external partners, and Oxford Net Zero researchers from business to law and policy to physical sciences, to carry out collaborative projects, such as the curation of sectoral decarbonisation solutions. You will produce research on the shifting business models and leadership practices for aligning with net zero in priority sectors.

Both are one year posts with the opportunity and funding to extend to a second year.

Oxford practices inclusive hiring and encourages a wide range of applicants. See full job descriptions above, here and here.
