We're soliciting applications for a full-time Climate Law & Policy Research Fellow
The Center for Law, Energy & the Environment is seeking to hire a Research Fellow focused on Climate Law & Policy.

The Center for Law, Energy and the Environment (CLEE) is based at the UC Berkeley School of Law, which benefits from one of the leading environmental law programs in the nation. Building on UC Berkeley's history of and commitment to research and public service, CLEE leverages the intellectual resources of Berkeley Law faculty and students in furtherance of applied scholarship in a variety of environmental and energy law and policy areas. CLEE's research priorities include combating climate change, advancing sustainable energy, addressing water allocation and management challenges, and developing solutions to other pressing environmental law and policy challenges.

Ethan Elkind, director of the Climate Program at CLEE

The fellow will work with CLEE on climate change law and policy issues in California and beyond. The focus will be on implementation of California's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but projects may also cover multi-state and international topics. Specific research areas will depend on the fellow's background and interests, but will likely include: renewable energy, energy efficiency, electric vehicle deployment, energy storage, low-carbon transit, and sustainable real estate development. The fellow will collaborate with project partners at other academic institutions, in state government, from the business and nonprofit communities, and other stakeholders. The fellow must be willing to travel occasionally within California and sometimes out of state.
