Annual Reviews has created our first Global Climate Change Fellowship to explore how best to serve the needs of individuals and groups seeking unbiased research information on global climate change, including policy makers, business professionals, educators, journalists, activists and other members of society.

Do you have experience in climate change research, a passion for understanding the needs of non-scientists for accurate information and an interest in contributing to new media products?

If so, this Fellowship offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of accurate, useful and engaging products and services that bridge climate change research to policy, industry, education and the public at large.

This is a remote full-time role available to candidates who reside in the following states: CA, CO, GA, HI, MA, NC, NY, OH, OR, PA, VA, WA or WI. Some travel will be required, up to 5%.

Annual Reviews (AR) is a nonprofit publisher dedicated to synthesizing and integrating knowledge for the progress of science and the benefit of society. Our top-ranked journals and highly cited reviews—written by some of the world’s foremost experts in their fields—promote innovation and awareness among researchers and students. AR also produces Knowable Magazine, an award-winning publication which explores the real-world significance of scholarly work through a journalistic lens.

  • Participate in the development and testing of potential products and services that address the needs of target groups
  • Learn and report on the work of other organizations that provide complementary services
  • Help to seek sources of funding

The position is available for up to 24 months beginning approximately on June 1, 2022.

  • A Master’s degree although a PhD is strongly preferred
