The CLF is looking for a summer student assistant to support embodied carbon resource development in Summer 2023.

Potential project areas include:

    • Working with the CLF Policy Team to update the CLF Policy Toolkit. The figures and texts from our primers and research reports are frequently cited by other policy reports around the world and are in need of an update to reflect our expanded knowledge on this topic and the broadened field of existing policies.
    • Working with CLF researchers to help manage data that supports the Whole Building Life Cycle Analysis Benchmarking Study V2. This project will fill a critical gap in the AEC industry and help enable architects, engineers, policy makers, and the entire design community to work towards realistic and measurable embodied carbon reductions at the building scale.
    • Working with a team of UW researchers from the CLF, the Integrative Design Lab, and the Department of Forestry to support the administration of a collaborative project with the US Department of Energy that focused on scaling carbon-storing building materials.

This assistant would work with the CLF teams to update the existing primers and website content, maintaining databases and other administrative records, and helping create new resources to add to the website, such as case studies and model policy language.
