Work With Us

Duke University is heightening its commitment to accelerate sustainable and equitable solutions to the climate crisis and develop a new generation of climate-literate thought leaders. An ambitious university-wide strategy will build on decades of successful energy and environmental research, education, and external engagement efforts. As part of this endeavor, the university is merging two of its signature interdisciplinary units: the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and the Duke University Energy Initiative. Working closely with Duke University schools and other units, the merged institute will advance the university’s climate strategy by developing transformative educational experiences; galvanizing and conducting impactful research; and engaging with decision makers at the global, national, state, and local levels.
We offer a number of career opportunities, with many positions allowing our employees the chance to play a role in the leading environmental debates of our time. In addition to a unique and dynamic work environment, the Nicholas Institute and Energy Initiative—part of Duke University—offers employees a comprehensive benefits package, including health care and dental benefits, flexible work options, generous vacation and leave time, retirement benefits, and a tuition assistance program.
