Bangalore, Karnataka, India (Travel may be required)
Commensurate with qualifications.
The World Resources Institute (WRI)’s Major Emerging Economies Initiative is seeking an Associate/Senior Associate to develop and implement innovative projects in the areas of energy and climate change in India. The Associate/Senior Associate position is fairly independent and, therefore, the successful candidate has to be a self-starter, able to work with minimal guidance and set challenging goals and deliver on time. A successful candidate will have knowledge on India’s energy policy including the power sector, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and on their relationship with climate change.
The Associate/Senior Associate will initially work on existing projects in the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, and will be required to work closely with other WRI project teams on issues relating to electricity governance, urban development and sustainable transport. WRI projects are implemented in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders- particularly government agencies, private sector and others, and a successful candidate should have well established networks with these stakeholders within and outside the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
Going forward, the Associate will also be required to develop effective partnerships with such stakeholders in other parts of the country. The successful candidate will work as a team member and coordinate closely with other WRI colleagues in India and Washington, D.C.
The position comes under WRI’s Climate & Energy Program (CEP). The program strives to set the world on a new course, one with cleaner energy sources, healthier ecosystems and societies, technological innovation, and economic opportunities. Working with international, governmental, civil society, and business partners, CEP identifies and promotes effective policies and strategies to address climate change. The 50-person program currently works in fields such as renewable energy, U.S. federal and state climate policy, international climate policy, greenhouse gas accounting, carbon capture and storage, international emissions trading, the relationship between forests and climate, and adaptation to climate change. The program has a significant international focus, especially through partnerships in developing countries.
