Year-Long Research Assistant

We are hiring a research coordinator to support our programs and projects. Help us improve our grant review process, identify audiences for our publications, contribute to our blog, develop a research strategy, and more. This is an ideal position for a recent Penn graduate.

Kleinman Summer Fellowships

Make the most of your summer with a fellowship designed for you. Our Kleinman Birol Fellowship sends a Penn student to work at the International Energy Agency in Paris. Our fellowship with the Philadelphia Energy Authority helps a student explore energy at home in Philadelphia. In 2022, we rolled out a third fellowship with Energia, for a student who is interested in the intersection of energy transition and gender. And the Kleinman Apollo Fellowship allows a student to work as a part of Apollo’s Climate Private Equity group focused on climate-related investments.

Kleinman Research Assistants

Each fall the Kleinman Center hires student research assistants to support our ongoing research projects. Students can have their research published by the Center and shared with our audience. We welcome students from all schools and academic levels to apply.
