Join Us – Current Positions

Current position calls are below. In addition, ICCI welcomes proposals for internships and in-kind work, especially to create animations and graphics that can help spread better knowledge of cryosphere dynamics, but other proposals welcome! Past internships have included work on black carbon from woodstoves, summaries of recent cryosphere science, and satellite monitoring of open burning near the Arctic.

Nordic Coordinator

Virtual – Open to Qualified Applicants in Sweden

ICCI is seeking an enthusiastic Sweden and Nordic Coordinator for a half-time contract position, to bring the implications of latest cryosphere science to the Swedish and Nordic community. This exciting and varied work includes contacts with the scientific community, non-governmental organizations, and international organizations, especially the UNFCCC and Nordic Council. A major emphasis will be organizing an international cryosphere conference, in coordination with the Bolin Centre, early in 2024. The position would be especially appropriate for a recent graduate in one of the cryosphere sciences who is looking for climate policy and communications experience; but would also be appropriate for those who have studied political science, development or communications. May be structured as a post-doctoral position, similar to AAAs Fellows. Excellent Swedish language skills are highly desirable, but not essential. The Coordinator would join a diverse and global team of cryosphere scientists and ex-diplomats; to help communicate the vital urgency of emission reductions to prevent additional loss and collapse of mountain and polar cryosphere. Start date immediately/September 2023 (flexible), with a two-year contract.

About ICCI

ICCI is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, nongovernmental organization in the United States, founded in 2010 in the wake of COP-15 in Copenhagen; and a non-profit organization, ICCI-Europe, founded in Sweden in 2012.  ICCI works to protect the Earth’s frozen lands and waters – and thereby, the entire globe – from the impacts of climate change. The cryosphere spans areas of the planet covered seasonally or year-round in ice and snow, including the Greenland and Antarctica ice sheets, glaciers, snow, sea ice, permafrost and our polar oceans. As a network of both senior policy experts and leading researchers, ICCI works with governments, civil society and other actors to highlight the consequences of the rapid changes taking place in the cryosphere and the dynamics that drive them; promote rapid emissions reductions of 50% by 2030 to slow these; and support small-scale demonstration projects in support of mitigation and adaptation in mountain and near-polar regions. A message of both warning, and hope — that it is NOT too late to prevent cryosphere collapse, but an active choice by global leaders and humanity — is a key part of ICCI’s outreach mission.
