Croatan Institute is Hiring!

April 27, 2022

Croatan Institute is now hiring for two positions: an Associate and an Analyst. 

Croatan Institute is an independent, nonprofit research and action institute whose mission is to build social equity and ecological resilience by leveraging finance to create pathways to a just economy. The Institute is seeking a diligent, flexible, and highly motivated individual to support ongoing research and projects.

Our work at the nexus of finance, social equity and ecological resilience addresses the following cross-cutting themes:

    • Accountability
    • Business & Human Rights
    • Climate Solutions
    • Equity & Inclusion
    • Farming & Forestry
    • Food Systems
    • Frameworks & Data Analytics
    • Resilient Communities

Since the Institute’s launch in 2014, we have rapidly established a reputation for rigorous, cutting-edge research and advocacy on a wide range of issues in sustainable finance and resilient economic development. Based in the research triangle region of North Carolina, with an extended team of affiliates in the Northeast, the Midwest, the South, and Geneva, Switzerland, the Institute is an early stage, entrepreneurial nonprofit working at the critical nexus where finance, sustainability, and economic development intersect. 

The candidates will be expected to work remotely but, if desired, could enjoy future opportunities for in-office hours at our workspace in dynamic downtown Durham, NC, or in other areas where we have affiliates.



Location: Remote

Hours: Full-Time


The candidate will spend their time analyzing sustainable, responsible, and impact investing trends in the United States and supporting the Racial Equity, Economics, Finance & Sustainability (REEFS) program, as well as other programs as needed. There is also the potential for deeper integration with other areas where the Institute works, including our food, farming, and forestry finance projects, just climate solutions, and frameworks and data analytics initiatives.


Location: Remote

Hours: Full-time


The candidate will be expected to work remotely during the pandemic but should anticipate future opportunities for in-office hours in the Raleigh-Durham area or in other areas where we have affiliates. This position will report directly to the director of Racial Equity Economics Finance Sustainability (REEFS) and support the program’s three research pillars of (1) enhancing investor decisions, (2) expanding the BIPOC pipeline within finance, and (3) achieving financial health among communities of color.
