Internship: North American Arctic-Boreal Carbon Synthesis, Tufts Fletcher School, Woodwell Climate Research Center (Remote)

As the Arctic warms, large amounts of carbon stored in permafrost soils are expected to be released as carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and methane (CH 4 ). Woodwell Climate Research Center is currently partnering with scientists at NASA, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins and Montana State University in an Arctic-Boreal Carbon Synthesis activity that brings together information from in situ monitoring networks, satellites, and models to provide best estimates of CO 2 and CH 4 budgets for tundra and boreal forests in North America. The outcomes of this synthesis project will include a publication in a peer-reviewed journal and science presentations at NASA meetings. We also aim to share these findings with policymakers and the general public.

Internship: Salmon, Water, and People on the Kenai Peninsula, Tufts Fletcher School, Woodwell Climate Research Center (Remote)

Climate warming in Alaska is increasing stream temperatures to levels that now commonly reach and exceed survival thresholds (18°C) for migrating Chinook salmon. The lack of basic knowledge of the climate-water-salmon-people system endangers the economy of the Kenai Peninsula where salmon serve as an economic pillar through sport- and commercial fishing. Working with Kachemak Bay Conservation Society (KBCS), local communities and decision-makers, this project will make a preliminary assessment of the scope and nature of present benefits from the fishery and key impacts of climate change on the decline of the fisheries total economic value and apply cost benefit analysis to identify cost effective, socially equitable policy responses.

CPL Research Assistantships for State-Owned Enterprise Energy Study, Fletcher School CIERP (Medford, MA / Remote)

The Climate Policy Lab is seeking four research assistants to conduct background research on state-owned energy enterprises (SOEs) in a wide range of countries (BRICS, majority of the EU countries, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Morocco). Research assistants will be expected to conduct an inventory of national energy SOEs in three to six countries and also assemble key information regarding SOEs size and operations, investments, climate change strategies, and other financial and corporate metrics.
