The Carbon Leadership Forum is proud to be hosted at the University of Washington’s Department of Architecture.

Staff and student opportunities with the Carbon Leadership Forum, including positions such as research engineers and assistants, program managers, and research scientists are secured through the University of Washington.


The Carbon Leadership Forum at the University of Washington is hiring! Two positions have been posted:

(1) Program Manager — An experienced and collaborative leader to help execute the mission of the Carbon Leadership Forum

(2) Research Engineer — An embodied carbon policy and methodology lead to implement and work closely with initiatives such as the EC3 tool.  (Note that an  engineering degree is not required; ‘engineer’ is just a standard UW title.)

And we’re also excited to share that the newly formed nonprofit Building Transparency which is hosting and scaling the EC3 tool is hiring a Life Cycle Assessment data expert to support and advance the continued development of the EC3 tool and its underlying open access database.

These are ambitious and growing organizations. Come help scale our impact on global decarbonization. Please consider applying for these positions and sharing with your network. Note these positions do not require you to be located in Seattle.
