Sightline is Cascadia’s sustainability think tank. We aim to set the region’s long-term agenda by defining the region’s largest sustainability challenges and describing the most effective solutions for meeting them. We believe true sustainability exists at the intersection of environmental health and social justice.

Sightline appreciates a broad array of experiences and backgrounds and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We continually work to ensure that our audiences, staff, and board reflect the geographic, racial, ethnic, socio-economic, and other demographic diversity of Cascadia.

Senior Researcher: Anchorage

This newly created position will be based in Anchorage and lead the expansion of our programs into Alaska and will, over time, work in partnership with Alaskans on a variety of issue areas. The Senior Researcher will report to the Research Director, Housing and Urbanism (in Seattle) and will be part of the organization’s Housing and Urbanism team, with an additional working relationship with our Democracy Reform team.

The Senior Researcher will hold initial consultations with government, community, business and Alaska Native leaders in Anchorage to hear their needs, understand the city-making challenges they are up against and, in collaboration with the Housing and Urbanism team in Seattle, identify focus areas of research that address shared needs. All of Sightline’s Alaska work will be designed in consultation with Alaska-based organizational allies.
