The Opportunity
Abt Associates seeks an early-career professional to support the research, design and execution of data-intensive government projects focused on the environment and energy sector. You'll bring your data and digital expertise to help us address challenges ranging from pollution prevention and climate resiliency to energy transition and climate and environmental justice.

You will join a community of data and digital experts and participate in professional development opportunities, networking events and more. Positions are remote with a preference that applicants are located near one of offices in Rockville, MD, Cambridge, MA, Durham NC, or Atlanta GA to meet and work with colleagues in person.
