Carbon Dioxide Removal Senior Associate, Geochemistry – Climate Aligned Industries

No Deadline

RMI seeks a Senior Associate with experience in geochemistry, biogeochemistry or geochemical engineering to support our Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) initiative. This role is focused on the rigorous assessment of geochemical CDR techniques, the identification of breakthrough opportunities to advance geochemical CDR through R&D, commercial deployment and policy change – all in partnership with other researchers and practitioners in the CDR field.


Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Environmental Engineering

Deadline: Nov 01, 2023

Yale University: School of Engineering and Applied Science: Chemical and Environmental Engineering; New Haven, Connecticut, United States

The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate or Full Professor rank faculty appointment in the School of Engineering & Applied Science with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024. This search is a partnership between the CEE and the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture (YCNCC). Areas of interest include research related to climate change with a focus on the design and characterization of natural or engineered processes for greenhouse gas emission reductions and removal, as well as carbon capture, storage, and valorization. These areas complement the traditional strengths of the environmental engineering field in inorganic aquatic chemistry, (electro)chemical and microbial process engineering, atmospheric sciences/chemistry, materials and membrane sciences, and green engineering, and reflect the focus of YCNCC, which is to foster research to create reliable and scalable strategies to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations while leveraging co-benefits. While the appointment will be in Environmental Engineering, candidates are expected to play a critical role in the development and success of the YCNCC (https://naturalcarboncapture.yale.edu/).


PhD position: Understanding challenges in the Science-Policy interface of soil-based Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies

Deadline: 2 October 2023

The position will be a crucial part of a collaborative project between the Environmental Policy and the Soil Chemistry and Chemical Soil Quality groups at Wageningen University (The Netherlands). The aim of the project is to understand how science and policy around soil-based Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies interact. Such technologies to limit global warming appear simple and noncontroversial, yet they are extremely challenging to implement. The groups observe key problems in the translation of scientific insights from local-scale studies to global climate models, as well as in applying science from global models to policy for specific farmlands and forests.


Postdoctoral researcher in Forest Biogeochemistry and Enhanced Weathering

Review will begin on September 30 until the position is filled

The School of the Environment at Trent University, Canada, invite applications for a postdoctoral position in forest biogeochemistry and enhanced weathering. The project entails applying wollastonite (Ca-silicate) rock powder to a managed forest in Central Ontario over 3 years with the goals of (1) accurately quantifying C storage, (2) characterizing forest health and organic C responses, (3) developing novel approaches to quantify CO2 removal, and (4) assessing the scalability of wollastonite application to forest management practices.


Three Postdoctoral Research Associate positions at Eisaman Lab at Yale University

No Deadline

The Eisaman Lab for Carbon Removal and Clean Technologies at Yale University is open to prospective postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduates from a wide range of fields in science and engineering with interests in carbon dioxide removal.

The Eisaman lab is seeking a Ocean carbon dioxide removal researcher to work on the development of new models, protocols, sensors, and sensor networks for Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV); new approaches to ocean CDR, especially those leveraging electrochemistry; effects on marine organisms; and hybrid approaches, especially the combination of ocean and geochemical CDR.

A Machine Learning Developer/ Ocean Modeller to work on an interdisciplinary project at the intersection of ocean and climate modeling, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The goal of the research effort is to better quantify the uncertainty of ocean model forecasts used for the Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) of Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) approaches to CDR.

A Computational Geochemist/Geologist to work on an interdisciplinary project at the intersection of geochemistry, computational modeling, and CDR. The overall goal of the research effort is to understand, quantify, and optimize the potential for the acidic pretreatment and partial dissolution of basalt formations to enhance the speed and capacity of subsequent CO2 mineralization.


Postdoc (m/f/d) in Earth system modelling and assessing CO2 removal approaches

Deadline: 6th August 2023

The research unit Marine Biogeochemical Modelling of the research division 2: Marine Biogeochemistry at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany) is offering a Postdoc (m/f/d) position starting on October 1st, 2023. Initial work will involve running a state-of-the-art Earth system model (FOCI) to simulate temperature stabilization scenarios with and without overshoot to assess the climate dynamics and carbon cycle response of these different scenarios. The scientist is expected to explicitly implement four core carbon dioxide removal measures (ocean alkalinity enhancement, direct air carbon removal and storage, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, afforestation) into FOCI.


Marine Scientist

No Deadline

Ebb Carbon is seeking a Marine Scientist. Ebb Carbon is a climate and ocean-health restoration company. Their mission is to remove gigatons of CO2 from the air, while reducing ocean acidification to restore a healthier planet for generations to come. The job includes furthering the understanding of the effects of ocean alkalinity enhancement by designing and executing experiments, reporting results to both internal and external stakeholders, developing and assessing advanced oceanographic sensor systems, and more.


PostDoc in Environmental Science / Pyrogenic carbon: storage potential in soils

No Deadline

The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL is seeking a PostDoc in Environmental Science. As part of the multidisciplinary project of the Swiss Center of Excellence on Net-Zero Emissions of the ETH domain, the job includes assessing the quality of various types of pyrolized carbon and test the biological stability in lab and field experiments partly using isotope approaches and evaluating the storage potential and beneficial effect in soils.


Two doctoral researchers in resource and climate economics

Deadline: 2023-07-21

The Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW Kiel) seeks applications for two doctoral researchers in resource and climate economics in its research center “Global Commons and Climate Policy”. The researchers will be based in Kiel. The working group focuses on international and EU climate and environmental policies and analyses in particular challenges related to atmospheric carbon dioxide removal (CDR) to achieve ambitious climate policies. The research contributes to third-party funded projects and involves both, more fundamental and more applied research questions.


Two Postdoctoral researcher positions in Earth system sciences at the University of Munich

Deadline: 2023-04-26

The chair for Physical Geography and Land Use Systems (Prof. Julia Pongratz) at LMU’s Department of Geography is seeking two postdocs in Earth system sciences. The working group develops and applies the latest generation of land and Earth system models and integrates them with observations. Key research questions are the fate of natural ecosystems under the pressures of land use and climate change, Earth system feedbacks via energy, water and biogeochemical cycles, and assessing the role that the terrestrial vegetation can play for greenhouse gas emissions reduction and CO2 removals in support of the Paris Agreement. The team is strongly involved in large international collaborations such as the Global Carbon Project, CMIP and IPCC.
