Oil Change International (OCI) is seeking a Research Analyst to boost our capacity to produce timely and impactful analysis in support of campaigns to challenge the fossil fuel industry and advance climate justice.

At OCI, our approach is data-driven and people powered. We produce hard-hitting analysis to expose the true costs of fossil fuels and couple that analysis with innovative campaigns to shift the narrative and pressure decision makers to stand up to the fossil fuel industry. In this position, you will have the opportunity to use hard-to-access industry data to support frontline campaigns against new fossil fuel infrastructure and hold governments and institutions accountable to ensuring a rapid and equitable phase-out of fossil fuel extraction.

The Research Analyst will report to OCI’s Research Co-Director and be part of OCI’s core Research Team.

  • This position will coordinate with campaigners and analysts across OCI’s six program areas (Global Policy, Global Public Finance, Global Industry, United States, Asia, and Africa) to respond to emerging research needs and requests, help produce new analysis and research products, and optimize use of OCI’s research tools and databases.
  • Examples of research tasks and projects the person in this role may undertake include: compiling data to analyze the potential climate impact of a new oil and gas field in Norway, scanning OCI’s subscription databases for new reports related to oil and gas development in Namibia, conducting a review of the latest literature on the pitfalls of fossil-based hydrogen, and assessing the fossil fuel expansion plans of an oil and gas major like ExxonMobil.
  • The ideal candidate will have skills in quantitative and qualitative data analysis (with an emphasis on quantitative), some background in conducting research on energy, climate, and/or related social justice issues, and a passion for using data as a tool to advance advocacy campaigns.
  • Experience doing analysis in Global South contexts and/or related to just energy transition issues are pluses.

Reports to: Research Co-Director
Location(s): Virtual / remote work. Candidates must be willing to occasionally work flexible hours to coordinate with colleagues across time zones and be located within 6 hours of the US Eastern time zone (i.e. UTC -11 through UTC +1).
Type: Full-time (36 hours per week), exempt.


Oil Change International is a nonprofit organization that campaigns to expose the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitate the ongoing transition towards clean energy. We wage hard-hitting campaigns, grounded in solid and credible research, to confront the fossil fuel industry and its responsibility for the climate crisis and to push for policy change towards a socially just and environmentally sustainable future. We work together with a broad network of allies, in the United States and globally, to overcome the political barriers to a clean energy transition and advance a rapid and just transition off of fossil fuels.

Founded in 2005, Oil Change International has a creative, passionate, and dedicated staff of thirty across twelve countries and a supporter base of hundreds of thousands. Known both for our credible, insightful research on the fossil fuel industry and our hard-hitting campaigns, Oil Change is a talented group that continues to punch above its weight.
