Program Overview (from the program website):

The High Meadows Fellowship program has forged a new partnership with Climate Central in Princeton, NJ, and announces two (2), two-year, paid positions to current Princeton seniors, beginning in summer/fall 2012. Current Princeton seniors in good standing are eligible to apply. The two positions are open to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens. The position description for the two positions can be found here and the online application here. The application deadline is Friday, March 9, 2012.

The Climate Central positions align with the focus of the High Meadows program which provides recent graduates substantive professional opportunities to work with nonprofits that protect the environment and build environmental sustainability, awareness, and community capacity. As a research and journalism organization that provides clear and up-to-date information to help people make sound decisions about climate and energy, Climate Central was established by leaders in the climate change community to provide a bridge between the public and climate scientists. Contributing in a pivotal way to the national effort to communicate the facts of climate science, Climate Central hopes to convey to the public and decision-makers that climate change is real, human-caused, and past due for action.

The two High Meadows Climate Central fellowships will focus their work on analyzing climate trend data and developing issue area expertise in either extreme weather, climate change impacts or energy solutions. The organization has a strong connection to Princeton as evidenced by those on staff, including Princeton adjunct professor and Climate Central chief climatologist Dr. Heidi Cullen who works on extreme weather and climate; Dr. Nicole Heller ‘95 and Climate Central scientist, who works on impacts of climate change on species and ecosystems; and Dr. Eric Larson, senior scientist at Climate Central and a research professor at Princeton, who works on energy.
