Policy Analyst


One of PennFuture’s major strategic priorities is halting the petrochemical buildout in Pennsylvania. A major tactic in doing so is consistently, accurately, and purposefully pushing back against the false narratives promulgated by the fossil fuel industry. To that end,
PennFuture is seeking a dynamic Policy Analyst (Analyst) to develop and promote policy, advocacy, and educational content as part of a new rapid response initiative.

An ideal candidate has a proven track record as a thought leader and expert as it pertains to the petrochemical, fracked gas, and plastics industries. This person will be frequently called upon to lend their expertise in helping develop policy positions and with public
presentations, policy hearings, and other high-visibility events.

The analyst will also have experience with rapid response-style communications and can balance accuracy with timeliness on a consistent, daily basis. Candidates will be expected to conduct in- depth and substantive research into the negative impacts of petrochemical, fracked gas and plastics industries, particularly on low-income communities and communities of color, and will be expected to write talking points, reports, fact sheets, and white papers that can be used in presentations, blogs, social media, and other public-facing communications.

While the Analyst reports directly to PennFuture’s Vice President of Legal & Policy, the position will also work closely with PennFuture’s Director of Media Relations and PennFuture’s Energy Center.
