"Green Steel" in automotive production Fellowship (Berlin)

International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT)


The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) is pleased to announce the opening of a new Fellow position in its Passenger Car Program in Europe and invites all eligible applicants to apply.

The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) is an award-winning, independent, global, non-profit research organization that provides data-driven research to advance policies that reduce the health and environmental impacts of the transportation sector. The ICCT offers a mission-driven and culturally diverse workplace where intelligence, flexibility, transparency, and good humor are highly valued. Join our team of more than 100 talented researchers and support staff with offices in Berlin, Beijing, San Francisco, São Paulo, and Washington D.C.

With increasing electrification of new vehicles, emissions from the use phase are about to drastically decline in future years. Thereby, the relative importance of reducing the emissions from the production phase increases. "Green Steel", i.e., steel that is manufactured using renewable energy rather than fossil fuels, as well as an increased use of recycled steel are key pathways for reducing upstream manufacturing emissions for new passenger cars.

The ICCT seeks a Fellow who will contribute their energy and creativity towards research that will help us to better understand current manufacturing processes and material flows as well as the future potential of applying Green Steel in the automotive industry in Europe. The fellowship will provide the opportunity to work at the intersection of vehicle technology, economics, and public policy.

This 9 to 12 month fellowship, based in our office in Berlin, Germany, is best suited for someone with inventiveness, creativity, resourcefulness, and curiosity, willing to work hard and learn fast. To be successful in our work environment, you must be intellectually curious, self-directed, and able to work with people from across the globe. You will report to an ICCT Researcher.

You Will:

  •  Collect and analyze data to map the materials' origin and application in currently produced vehicle models in Europe, with a focus on steel but also considering aluminum and other materials
  •  Identify technology pathways for reducing steel usage and reducing embedded carbon for vehicle manufacturers, quantify and visualize the potential emission savings
  •  Interact with representatives from the automotive and steel industry, to arrive at a better understanding of future plans for producing and applying Green Steel in the European automotive industry
  •  Derive policy recommendations for de-carbonizing pathways in the automotive production in Europe
  •  Author or co-author deliverables to communicate research findings and policy implications
  •  Prepare presentations and present findings in public forums, such as workshops and conferences, as well as in private forums, such as invite-only stakeholder meetings and policymaker briefings
  •  Closely coordinate with other ICCT researchers and partner organizations around the world

Our Benefits

This is a full-time (40 hours/week), temporary position for 9 to 12 months. The position may lead to regular, full-time employment depending on organizational resources and the Fellow’s performance. The position will be based in the ICCT’s Europe office in Berlin. We offer a competitive gross salary range of 2,800-3,300 EUR per month, depending on education and experience.


You Have:

  •  Minimum Bachelor's degree in engineering, science, economics or related field; Master's level or other graduate-level degree is a plus
  •  Experience collecting, critically analyzing, and drawing insights from data
  •  Experience working in teams and a collaborative research environment
  •  Strong English language skills, both written and verbal
  •  Intermediate to advanced written and verbal skill in a second language is a plus
  •  Interest and possibly already experience investigating the climate, energy, and health impacts of the transport sector; experience in the field of steel production or steel trade is a plus
  •  Skills in analytical and modeling tools (e.g., Matlab, R, or Python) is a plus
