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 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.

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.

Project Drawdown Fellows are engaged in drawdown research through team-based, collaborative modeling. Fellows are evaluating solutions at different scales, e.g. at municipal, state, or regional. The variability of biophysical and socioeconomic conditions means that the application of technologies, practices, and policies are best informed by research in local and regional contexts. 

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 Opportunities

The Research Fellowship is a six-month program focused on solution research and global and regional modeling. Research Fellows work together with the senior research team to collect data, conduct meta-analyses, and map results to social and economic indicators.

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.
