4th New York City Panel on Climate Change ( NPCC )

Equity Workgroup

Fellow Description

The 4th NPCC Equity Workgroup was established to support NPCC efforts to incorporate equity into the assessment activities of all the NPCC workgroups. The Workgroup is also tasked with identifying ways to center equity as a key metric for NPCC assessments (e.g, establishment of indicators and monitoring to track the equity dimensions of climate risk, vulnerabilities, and impacts); exploring innovative equity approaches and new data for integration into planning and implementing adaptation interventions; and exploring emerging new questions around the impacts of climate change and climate adaptation interventions on displacement of EJ communities throughout New York City. The previous NPCC equity report established critical baseline indicators for assessing equity in climate adaptation and this next edition will build on the last assessment.

The Equity Workgroup is seeking a workgroup fellow who can support the research, writing and organizing tasks of the group. The fellow would be tasked with primary and secondary research related to the workgroup's primary goals and research objectives. The fellow would also guide the collection of data, draft reports with results and research findings for review by workgroup members, and be responsible for the overall organization and management of research tasks related to the workgroup's scope of work. The Fellow would be working collaboratively with other research assistants and fellows as well as workgroup members, with supervision by the workgroup co-chairs. The workgroup meets biweekly and fellows are expected to participate in regular workgroup and general NPCC meetings, providing meeting support, preparing research results in presentation formats for the group and following up with workgroup members with specific areas of expertise to gather input and feedback.

Ideally the fellow would be a doctoral student or doctoral candidate ( ABD ) with aligned research interests that would allow for long term involvement in the workgroup until 2023. The fellow would be able to contribute to and co-author research and reports produced during the course of the fellowship. Excellent written and research skills required. Geospatial skills are a plus but not required and experience with conducting qualitative research is desired. The Fellow will report to Dr. Ana Baptista, Co-Director of the Tishman Environment and Design Center and Assistant Professor of Professional Practice at The New School, and Dr. Sheila Foster, Professor of Law and Public Policy, Georgetown University. The Fellow will receive a stipend of $11,000 for one year beginning as soon as possible.

Graduate Students only; PhD students are encouraged to apply and will be prioritized.
Interest in equity, environmental justice and climate change. Professional experience preferred.

Preferred Qualifications:
