The Grantham Institute, Imperial College London, with the support of Quadrature Climate Foundation (QCF) is looking for two researchers to work for us for two-years to set a firm scientific basis for climate change innovation and climate change philanthropy.

You will have the opportunity to deliver your own deep and state-of-the art research whilst also producing outputs in a way that can help guide and shape significant philanthropic investments. These jobs offer the opportunity to amplify impact with your research.

Working closely together with our Directors of Innovation and Research, as well as the funders, you will develop and deliver a programme of research in a specialist area of climate-related topics and manage and deliver high quality research over the two-year period.

These fellowships are unconventional and some non-academic outputs will be expected at shorter-term intervals than conventional papers in parallel to your overall programme of research.

These skills should be coupled with an ability to guide and conduct high-quality research and critical analysis across. We are open to receiving applications from a range of disciplines, however, we have significant interest in expertise covering the following areas: Chemical engineering or electrochemistry for the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industries. Geology/geo(bio)chemistry as applied to carbon dioxide storage or fuel extraction (petrochemicals, hydrogen, geothermal). Other talented individuals with a relevant climate-focused background
