Position description

This position is with Strategic Perspectives, a pan-European think tank created to promote effective climate action as the solution to a multitude of interconnected crises facing the EU. Strategic Perspectives is a programme hosted by the Meliore Foundation.

The Energy Analyst will support the team in the design and implementation of Strategic Perspectives' emerging EU gas exit strategy. This person will contribute to research and analysis on gas and the EU energy system, to developing a sectoral gas phase-out data tool and to build stakeholder coalitions. This position will report to the Director of Strategic Perspectives.

You have experience in EU energy and climate policy making and the way it intersects with politics at national and international levels. You want to use this knowledge and your network in defining and implementing our approach on the energy transition.
