Ember started work in Turkey in 2021. We produce cutting-edge research to support high impact, politically viable policies that aim to help Turkey reach its 2053 net zero target. We have grown our reputation in the country especially with research on the economic advantage of wind and solar power over coal and the dramatic reduction in energy imports thanks to wind and solar power generation. We are now looking for a new analyst to use Ember’s data into action approach to make a further impact in the energy transition debate in Turkey. To this end, you are expected to have previous experience in electricity data analysis professionally and/or academically.

Working at Ember

Ember is an independent energy & climate think tank, using data to drive down carbon emissions from electricity generation and to phase out coal. We gather, curate and analyse data on the global power system – and use our findings to improve energy and climate policy.

You’ll be joining us at a period of rapid growth, and be part of an innovative team that’s having a global impact in tackling climate change. We are also a founding member of Subak, the world’s first non-profit accelerator that scales climate impact through data, policy and behaviour change.

We are especially keen to encourage applications from people underrepresented in climate change analysis and campaigning. Climate change is a race issue, a class issue, and a gender issue. We welcome applicants with lived experiences of these issues.
