Job Descriptions

  • Scaling adoption of climate-smart agriculture practices presents an opportunity for smallholders to address the existential livelihood threats posed by climate change. These practices simultaneously provide immediate economic benefits for smallholders and contribute to climate change mitigation through increased sequestration of carbon in soils.

  • Assess the health and accessibility of global financing streams that support c-sequestration (carbon markets and philanthropy);
  • Produce a strategy to incorporate additional climate-smart farming practices that increase carbon sequestration while providing short-medium term economic benefits to farmers into One Acre's Core training/product package;
  • Present and promote strategy to organizational leadership and country teams;
  • Oversee execution of intervention and measurement strategy.

Qualifications
Required:

  • Advanced degree in Soil Science, Environmental Science, or a closely related field
  • English Language required; French, Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi are a plus
  • Creative and diligent approach to work; flexibility and humility

Preferred:

  • 3+ years of experience in agriculture with an emphasis on soil carbon dynamics or GHG fluxes, ideally in a development setting with smallholder farmers
  • Experience of soil carbon modeling, e.g. in CENTURY, APSIM, RothC, NDICEA
  • Experience using a mixture of quantitative and qualitative research methods at large scales, and producing systematic reviews and meta-analyses
  • Working knowledge of trends in global carbon markets and certification requirements
  • Experience leading collaborative work with multi-disciplinary teams

Sponsor International Candidates:

  • Yes. Nationals of countries in which we operate are especially encouraged to apply.

Compensation

  • Commensurate with experience

Benefits:

  • Health insurance, paid time off
