Job Posting: Research Assistant – Carbon Offsets in BC Project

March 18, 2014

The Climate Justice Project is a research alliance led by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and the University of British Columbia. It brings researchers in numerous disciplines from three BC universities together with a wide range of community partners, including environmental organizations, trade unions, and other social justice groups.

This research project will investigate and analyze the current carbon credit/offset regime in British Columbia, and its contribution to achieving a “carbon neutral” provincial public sector. The key tool for accomplishing this task has been the purchase of carbon credits by the Pacific Carbon Trust (PCT), a Crown corporation tasked with investing in GHG mitigation projects in BC.

A total of 285 hours are available for this project. The contract will begin on April 15, 2014 and last until approximately August 29, 2014. Hours are flexible. The student will be responsible for tracking and managing work hours in conjunction with the project leads. The full rate of pay is $21.03/hour (including payment in lieu of vacation).

Apply by March 31st at 4pm (Vancouver time) by mail or email.
