Bring your data analysis, project management and communication skills to an exciting role in a global team at Ember. We are looking for a candidate to deliver an important project focussed on methane emissions in Australia and how these are embedded in global supply chains. This is an interesting role that could help shape the future of climate policy.


We are recruiting a data analyst with project management and communication skills to deliver an important project that is focused on methane emissions from the coal sector and how these are linked to global steel supply chains. Experience in or working with industry would be welcomed, especially in ESG or net zero implementation. We already have a great reputation in Australia for providing policy and data analysis on coal mine methane, as one of our key geographies within a global programme that also covers Europe and Asia.

Data can help change the world, but only when people can understand it. Your work will have a real impact in shedding light on the scale and importance of coal mine methane emissions, which are currently largely overlooked within the climate and energy space. And you will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic global team within a fast growing and innovative organisation.

Australia is the fourth largest coal mine methane emitter, but little is being done to reduce it. Methane leaking from coal mines has been ignored for many years, but tackling it is one of the most critical short-term challenges to reduce global heating this decade. Methane is a potent and fast-acting greenhouse gas, which is 82.5 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over 20 years, making the task of reducing methane levels even more important in the near-term.


Australia (fully remote). Occasional travel may be required.

Key responsibilities:

Manage an 18-month project which will analyse data (including satellite data) about emissions from Australia’s mines and how these link to international steel supply chains;

Work closely with a satellite analyst and other data experts in Ember to understand the data and tell a story of the significance of coal mine methane nationally and in global steel supply chains;

Build a network of partners and collaborators working closely with the steel industry;

Work with our communications experts to write publications and reports that grab attention with the right players;

Lead on developing a strategy to raise the priority of coal mine methane within the steel industry;

Work closely with our Australia Climate Strategy Advisor to recommend how this research will play into our wider Australia and Asia coal mine methane work

Salary & hours:

Salary: 78,246 AUD with potential progression to 101,406 AUD plus 11% superannuation

Contract: Full time (but only working 9 days every fortnight with no reduction in pay), permanent subject to a 3 month probationary period

Further Benefits:

We operate a nine-day fortnight meaning our full-time staff are given every other Friday off work with no reduction in pay;

25 days holiday. For each year that you’re part of the team at Ember you’ll receive an additional day of holiday, up to a maximum of 5 additional days;
