The Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) is seeking a full-time Research Analyst to advance Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and other environmental protections at the federal, state, and local levels. This position is located at our Washington, D.C. office and is available starting in June 2019.

EIP is a non-partisan, nonprofit watchdog organization that advocates for effective enforcement of environmental laws. Comprised of former EPA enforcement attorneys, public interest lawyers, analysts, investigators, and community organizers, EIP has three goals: 1) To illustrate through objective facts and figures how the failure to enforce or implement environmental laws increases pollution and harms public health; 2) To hold federal and state agencies, as well as individual corporations, accountable for failing to enforce or comply with environmental laws; and 3) To help local communities obtain the protections of environmental laws. More information about EIP and our areas of focus can be found at

The Research Analyst will primarily support EIP’s oil and gas program. The Research Analyst will compile, manage, analyze, map, and visualize data related to air and water pollution and environmental enforcement; submit and review public information requests to state and federal government agencies; assist with field work and case development; research and write research memos, public reports, and website content; and carry out other tasks and travel as needed.


The ideal candidate will be a proactive, highly-organized, detail-oriented, and self-starting individual with strong analytical, computational, and written and oral communication skills. They will also thrive in a fast-paced work environment and be able to balance multiple projects with competing deadlines.

Experience and Education: At least two years of relevant professional experience and a 4-year college degree or at least one year of relevant professional experience and a masters degree or higher in environmental sciences, environmental engineering, environmental management, public health, GIS, or a related field. Some experience or coursework related to the oil and gas industry and pollution is preferred.

Technical Skills: Proficient in Microsoft Office, particularly Excel, and ArcGIS desktop and online mapping applications. Experience using EPA databases like Enforcement and Compliance History Online and the Toxics Release Inventory, and R for statistical computing are a definite plus.
