About the Climate Council

The Climate Council of Australia (CCA) is Australia’s leading climate change communications organisation. We provide authoritative, expert advice to the Australian public and key decision-makers on climate change and solutions based on the most up-to-date science available. CCA was founded in 2013 by thousands of Australians to create a new, independent and 100% community-funded organisation in response to the abolition of the Australian Climate Commission.

Our mission is to be a courageous catalyst propelling Australia towards bold, effective action to tackle the climate crisis.

The Researcher will join Australia’s premier team of climate solutions experts, climate scientists, health and climate security experts, economists and policy specialists. The Researcher will work with a small team of colleagues in the Solutions team to produce high-quality, accessible internal and external publications and climate solutions advice, and play their part in the activities of the broader research team. With exposure to many of Australia’s leading minds tackling climate change, this is a unique opportunity for the right person.

The role reports to the Senior Researcher – Climate Solutions and works as part of the Climate Council’s Research Team. The successful candidate will begin in the role as soon as possible, but preferably before late-May 2021.
