The RTC is the leading coalition for organizations committed to scaling up renewable heating and cooling at their facilities and dramatically cutting carbon emissions. 

 

Many large buyers (corporations, cities, education institutions, etc.) with large thermal loads are increasingly looking to renewable thermal solutions, just as they have been seeking renewable electricity solutions. However, renewable thermal solutions are far less commercially developed. The RTC is seeking to advance and clarify a menu of solutions. Within the RTC, the Manager will lead WWF's work to deepen the RTC coalition's strategy to develop buyer focused solutions, particularly around biomass and bioenergy. The ideal candidate will have solid expertise on bioenergy because it is an important but complicated solution for renewable thermal energy. Experience with and knowledge of other renewable thermal solutions is a plus. 


Responsibilities
  1. Strategy & Planning for the RTC: Ensures effective development and execution of a joint vision, strategy and work plans for building out the RTC's work and membership, in collaboration with other supporting organizations of the RTC and existing RTC corporate members.

  3. Relationship Management: The Manager leads WWF's partnership role within the RTC and recruits and manages relationships with companies and cities that are members of the RTC. The Manager builds and manages the RTC coalition of cities and companies around a technical, action-oriented agenda.
  4. Fundraising & Budget: In cooperation with the WWFUS Development Team and the Private Sector Engagement Team, the Manager identifies funding opportunities from RTC donors and members, cultivates opportunities, and prepares funding proposals and reports to donors, including joint funding proposals with RTC partners. She/he manages dues from RTC members and the WWF portion of the budget for the RTC initiative.
  5. Performs other duties as assigned.
Qualifications
  1. Must have at least 8 years of relevant work experience and strong familiarity with biomass, bioenergy and other renewable thermal technologies and solutions and organizations working on those solutions; 
  2. Must have a Bachelor's degree, preferably in fields such as  environmental studies, forestry, or business. A advanced degree in these areas of study is preferred.
  3. Experience working within or managing multi-stakeholder processes is desired

 

Additional Skills/Abilities

  • Strong technical understanding of bioenergy sustainability issues – understanding of the emissions profile compared to fossil fuels, various accounting methodologies and considerations, and sustainability issues for bioenergy feedstocks and supply chain.
  • In-depth knowledge of relevant accounting and sustainability standards for biomass and bioenergy
  • Knowledge of and connections to groups/companies/organizations that can advance renewable thermal solutions
  • Relationships with key players on bioenergy accounting and policy standards
  • Experience developing and managing corporate relationships
  • Strong coalition building and management skills
  • Excellent independent execution and follow-through
  • Able to accurately plan and manage a sub-program, including budget.
  • Communicates clearly and concisely orally and in writing, including ability to convey complex information simply to corporate, policy and other audiences.
  • Familiarity with trade-offs between natural gas for heating and cooling and renewable alternatives, including electrification preferred
  • Knowledge of a variety of potential solutions for meeting renewable thermal needs, including geothermal, solar thermal, RNG, electrification, etc. preferred

Please Note:

  • This is a 1-year position with the intention of extension 
  • Preference is for the person in this role to be based out of our DC office, but alternate arrangements can be considered for the right candidate

 

To Apply:

  • Submit cover letter and resume through our Careers Page,  Requisition #18084 
  • Due to the high volume of applications we are not able to respond to inquiries via phone

Job Overview

Job Opening: Eastern Plains Tiger Reintroduction Leader
 
WWF Greater Mekong – on the ground in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam – is working to conserve the region's biodiversity and build a secure and sustainable future for people and wildlife.
In the Global Tiger Recovery Program 2010-2022, WWF-Cambodia set the goal of bringing back tigers to their former range, noting that a translocation and reintroduction program may be needed to achieve this goal. The Cambodia Tiger Action Plan (CTAP) identified Srepok Wildlife Sanctuary (SWS) - previously known as the Mondulkiri Protected Forest – as a suitable source site for the reintroduction of tigers. WWF-Cambodia has been supporting conservation activities in this site since 2005, and in 2007, WWF commissioned a study to examine the feasibility of a restoration program that involves reintroduction if tigers are entirely extirpated or reinforcement if a few tigers still inhabit the area. The recent review of the feasibility study confirmed tiger reintroduction program in SWS is possible both ecologically and technically but extensive preparation is needed over the next 3-4 years, including establishing a strong on-the-ground law enforcement system and tiger's prey recovery that will be fundamental to success. WWF has committed to bring the tiger back to the Cambodia's Eastern Plains landscape of which SWS is a part.  WWF has prepared, with the Cambodian government, an operational plan for initiating this ambitious program
We are looking for an experienced Eastern Plains Tiger Reintroduction Leader who is responsible for leading the ambitious tiger reintroduction program in Eastern Plains Landscape (EPL) - aiming to build and develop actions that will have positive impacts on WWF's biodiversity conservation goals.

- At least 7-10 years of practical experience in managing complex programs related to transboundary wildlife conservation (tiger particular), protected areas management, and impact monitoring systems. A substantial part of this experience should have been in an organization specializing in conservation.
- Proven experience in leading complex, cross-boundary programs and project development and management
- Proven experience in complex project design, development and fundraising.
- Proven experience of managing programs funded by a diversity of sources including governments and aid agencies, private sector donors with annual budget of at least US$5 millions.

Job Overview

Overview

World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world's leading conservation organization, seeks (2) Markets and Food Research Fellows, one based at WWF-US Headquarters in Washington, DC, and the other based at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS – https://www.nceas.ucsb.edu/) in Santa Barbara, CA. This position is funded through December 219. WWF's half-century of conservation success is rooted firmly in science; it informs and underpins everything we do. WWF's goal is to ensure that people live in harmony with nature. Traditionally our strategies focused on species, their numbers, the habitat that is critical to their survival, illegal trade in biodiversity, the creation of protected areas and the identification and protection of corridors that are essential to the migration of movement of many species. Traditionally we worked with local communities and NGOs as well as governments and international bodies to build support for local to global strategies to protect biodiversity and critical ecosystem functions. We have also identified specific threats to the species and places we care about (e.g. dams, roads, mines, etc.) and worked with others to reduce or eliminate those threats. And we have developed certification programs that establish standards for the sustainable harvest of wild species (e.g. the Forest Stewardship Council for timber and the Marine Stewardship Council for wild seafood).

 

More recently, we have come to realize that some of the biggest threats to our mission are global and systemic. They cannot be addressed one place, one company or even one country at a time. WWF has worked in Markets and Food for over a decade with the acknowledgement that the biggest threat to our mission has long been where and how we produce food. Now those impacts are being exacerbated by increased populations, increasing income, shifts in consumption patterns and climate change. And, within food, the single biggest threat to WWF's mission comes from the production of animal protein.

 

The Markets and Food Research Fellows will work together to help lead and guide a strategic global protein research project that aims to carry out a comparative analysis of the impact of global protein production systems on the environment, livelihoods, and human health. This research project will be carried out in close collaboration with the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), based at the University of California Santa Barbara, which will support a research working group approach and convene a global panel of scientific experts to carry out the research. Working group meetings will be convened over the next 18 months at NCEAS facilities in Santa Barbara as well as in different regions of the world, including sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The Research Fellows will co-lead the project with considerable oversight, guidance and support from management and support teams within WWF and NCEAS. Through an analysis and synthesis research approach, this work will:

  • Describe the macro context for protein production and consumption globally and regionally, including plant-based and animal-based systems;
  • Identify and quantify the range of environmental impacts using key social and environmental metrics;
  • Describe and quantify the major global, regional and local drivers affecting protein production and consumption;
  • Describe issues and challenges related to livelihoods and nutrition, especially by key geographies;
  • Develop global/regional/national projections or scenarios of potential future global protein supply and demand to 2050, using data, insights and modeling approaches from key geographies;
  • Describe risks, opportunities, and tradeoffs for scaling up different protein production systems, including issues such as yield gaps, sustainable intensification, land use change, and climate change, as related to potential impacts on livelihoods, nutrition and the environment.

 

The Markets and Food Science Research Fellows report to the WWF-US Vice President for Markets and Food or the Executive Director of NCEAS.


Responsibilities

  • Provides project management and executive-level research and analysis support for the global protein research project, specifically as part of a Research Working Group approach
  • Works with Senior Vice President, Vice President of Markets and Food, the Executive Director of NCEAS and other key staff to conduct innovative research and modeling, data analysis, and literature reviews to synthesize findings, develop recommendation and deliver practice- and policy-relevant information
  • Stays abreast of relevant scientific literature and shares important findings with team
  • Conducts and supports colleagues in conducting research, analyses and synthesis, providing compelling written and visual information to convey key results
  • Serves as a radar function to identify opportunities and emerging science issues, especially related to protein
  • Drafts reports and papers suitable for peer-reviewed publications, supports high quality distribution of research and analysis and liaisons closely across the global science team, especially the WWF Lead Scientist for Agriculture and Food
  • Undertakes drafting and editing of Working Group project reports, findings, and proposals
  • Performs other duties as assigned 
Qualifications
  • A PhD obtained in a discipline in environmental science, agroecology, or related field (a must), expertise, experience and interest in terrestrial or marine protein and feed production is a plus
  • Considerable research and analytical experience required, preferably in an environmental or agricultural discipline
  • Knowledge and understanding of relevant, current research methods are a must
  • Experience in science communications, analytical and synthesis, and report writing preferred
  • Strong leadership, project management skills, and excellent organizational and multi-tasking skills
  • Excellent verbal, written, visual and interpersonal communications skills in English, French or another language a plus
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a decentralized network with a culturally diverse and international team 

Please Note: The application deadline is Tuesday, May 22nd at 12:00am EST.
