Clean Energy Policy Advisor, Third Way – Washington, DC

Organization: Third Way

Position Title: Clean Energy Policy Advisor

Location: Washington, DC

Application Deadline: Position open until filled

Description: Third Way is seeking a Policy Advisor to join the Clean Energy team, who has substantial knowledge of the electricity sector (with a particular focus on nuclear energy) and of Congress. This position is a great fit if you are seeking to marry your passions for politics, energy issues, and climate change, have a willingness to think beyond orthodoxies, and have a desire to tackle seemingly intractable problems.

Here are some of the questions our next Policy Advisor will be wrestling with:

  • What will the global electricity market look like in 20 years, and how can the U.S. government help American businesses compete in that market?
  • What support does the private sector need from the federal government to maintain our current nuclear fleet and develop advanced nuclear energy technologies in the US?
  • How do we balance demand for cheap energy with national interests like reliability, fuel diversity, and emissions reduction?

You do need strong research and writing skills, along with a familiarity with basic quantitative methods. Our work environment is collaborative and fast-paced. Our people are passionate about what they do.

Responsibilities: On an average day you would work closely with the team to:

  • Research and distill complex issues, including assembling and analyzing quantitative data into succinct and accessible products like policy reports, briefings, memos, and op-eds;
  • Build alliances with Congress, the Administration, advocacy organizations, and the energy sector that advance our clean energy policies; and
  • Represent Third Way on Capitol Hill, in meetings with the Administration and agency offices, and with advocacy organizations.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate has the following qualifications and skills:

  • Bachelor’s Degree, graduate degree in a relevant policy or science discipline preferred but not required
  • A minimum of five years of relevant experience working on energy policy and advocacy in the energy sector, on Capitol Hill, with an issue advocacy organization or the equivalent.

How to Apply: Please submit your cover letter, resume, writing samples, and salary requirements to: with “Policy Advisor, Clean Energy Program” in the subject line.
