Earthworks is excited to launch a new fellowship program to bring new leaders into the movement to challenge the fossil fuel industry and work towards a just, clean, and equitable energy economy for all.
The Stop The Buildout Fellowship is a paid, full-time 6-month position that includes mentorship, training, and the opportunity to work with Earthworks’ team in challenging new oil, gas, and petrochemical infrastructure along the US Gulf Coast. This fellowship will focus on intersecting issues of energy infrastructure development, climate change, public health, and environmental justice.
This position works closely with Earthworks’ program staff who work to reduce risks to water, health, air, and climate from oil and gas production, with our communication, digital and development departments, and will participate in regional and national coalition efforts to challenge oil, gas, and petrochemical expansion.
The Stop The Buildout Fellow will report to Earthworks’ Energy Infrastructure Campaigner and will join our energy program which includes federal policy experts, communications staff, development staff and a field advocate team active in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania and California.
The compensation for this position is $19,000 over a period of six months and includes vacation, sick, and other leave according to our personnel policies. Medical benefits are not included in this position. Preference will be given for applicants who live in Texas, Louisiana, or New Mexico, but applicants will be considered for a fully remote position.
The fossil fuel industry disproportionately impacts people who already face structural oppressions — including Black people, Indigenous people, and other people of color, people from working-class backgrounds, women, disabled people, and LGBTQ+ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do and we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.

Deadline to apply is midnight (Eastern Time) Sunday, July 19th.
