The Office of Chief Scientist (OCS) is the nexus of science at EDF, ensuring that the science that is the backbone for all EDF policy positions is based on the best available information. To be most effective in this role, OCS provides programmatic support for all scientists at EDF and fosters relationships with scientists outside the organization.
EDF has set an ambitious goal to achieve a 45% cut in global methane pollution from the Oil and Gas supply chain by 2025 in an effort to reduce the rate of warming we will experience over the next 20 years, equivalent to closing one third of the world’s coal fired power plants.
The Scientist, Global Methane will be a key contributor to oil and natural gas-associated initiatives within EDF. Minimizing methane emissions from oil and natural gas supply chains is a core part of EDF’s energy and climate work. The Scientist will (i) help EDF stay at the cutting-edge of how to measure and mitigate anthropogenic methane emissions, and (ii) work to develop the scientific understandings required to mitigate methane emissions associated with global production and distribution of oil, gas, and coal.
The Scientist will work with EDF's Office of the Chief Scientist in close collaboration with policy and legal experts and report to the International Senior Scientist.
