Fellowship Program

The Project Drawdown Fellowship is a cohort of climate leaders working on pragmatic solutions to solve global warming.



"It is a privilege and honor to participate in one of the most important projects of our time and be able to be in regular contact with some of the world's brightest and committed climate change solutions researchers -- the Project Drawdown Fellows."

- Kevin Bayuk, Senior Fellow - Financial Analysis

Research Opportunities

Central to Project Drawdown's ongoing research is our Fellowship Program. These unique opportunities bring together a community of passionate researchers working to help achieve a shared goal to solve global warming. The fellowship combines collaborative research assignments, pragmatic trainings, and access to the global Project Drawdown community. See below for open fellowship opportunities.

Project Drawdown Fellows are incorporating new research and data into models that demonstrate progress towards drawdown. To ensure research remains meaningful and useful, all data must be monitored, refreshed, and updated on a regular basis. As costs fluctuate, performance varies, measurements improve, and technologies become more efficient, new information enriches our understanding of the potential impacts of solutions.

In parallel, new metrics for evaluating solutions are being developed to incorporate accelerators and enablers of adoption, and applied to social, economic, and ecological indicators most relevant to decision-makers. 

Research Fellowship Opportunity - Oceans


Project Drawdown is currently recruiting for 1-2 research analysts for Project Drawdown’s oceans project. These fellows will contribute to creating an oceans data model, integrate the results from the oceans model into various types of communications, and regularly update the model with the latest data and research.

For more information and to apply, contact Catherine Foster.


Senior Fellowship Opportunity - Materials and Waste


Senior Fellows work as part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers and modelers that lead research, analysis, and modeling of Drawdown solutions. These subject matter experts oversee work conducted by Research Fellows and represent Project Drawdown as the principal point-of-contact for their subject areas. Project Drawdown is currently recruiting for a Senior Fellow specializing in Materials and Waste.
