This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

The Climate Policy Lab & CIERP

The Climate Policy Lab is an initiative of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at The Fletcher School, Tufts University.

Established in 1992 to meet the growing need for international environmental leaders, CIERP’s mission is to build sustainable prosperity in a changing global environment through rigorous, interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research and training of the next generation of leaders. CIERP’s work includes scholarly research for the international academic community; policy research that evaluates current programs or proposes new approaches; and applied policy development in collaboration with government agencies, the private sector, and international NGOs.

The main questions the Lab seeks to answer are: Which climate policies work in practice? Which don’t work?  Why? Under what conditions would they work elsewhere?  The scope of the Lab is global, with a particular emphasis on international comparative analysis. In-residence faculty and research fellows work with a global network of scholars, governmental policymakers, and multilateral organizations on projects, which are attuned to state, national, and bi-lateral policy processes, responsive to policy needs, and academically rigorous. The Lab’s products include accessible publications, scholarly journal papers, policy briefings, workshops, and trainings, all of which are designed to facilitate two-way communication between scholars and practitioners.

The Fletcher School

Since 1933, The Fletcher School has prepared the world’s leaders to become innovative problem-solvers in government, business, and non-governmental organizations with strategic cross-sector networks. Through our ongoing commitment and rigorous approach to advancing world knowledge through research and scholarship, we continue to inform and build bridges to meaningful global solutions. We seek to build partnerships between nations, government agencies and the public/private sector in order to be ready to shape international issues and events. The twenty-first century is being shaped by new realities worldwide, and global interdependence has become the accepted norm. From the reconstruction of post-conflict societies and the creation of markets in emerging economies to the analysis of terrorist threats and the promotion of human rights, today’s issues transcend borders and disciplines. Common to all these challenges are the myriad connections between history, politics and culture that we must understand to respond effectively to them.

Application should include:

  1. Cover letter (maximum 2 pages);
  2. Statement of research experience and interests;
  3. CV including a list of publications;
  4. Names, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers for three people who can provide recommendations (or reference letters from these individuals, if available).

Applications will be considered as they are received.  Deadline for applications is January 19, 2018.
