The Environmental Studies Program at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time, one-year grant-supported position with the potential for renewal. The hire will assist in development, management, assessment and communication related to “Environmental Dashboard” (see www.environmentaldashboard.org). This novel technology combines environmentally and socially contextualized real-time feedback on resource consumption and environmental conditions in buildings and cities with pro-environmental images and text drawn from community members. The goal is to develop, test and disseminate this as a technology and approach that enhances “systems thinking” and pro-environmental identity and that can be adopted by communities throughout the United States. A significant focus this year will be the development of a learning hub for the technology at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland. The incumbent will assist in all aspects of project management including overseeing student workers, coordination among community partners (including public school teachers, city government, businesses and non-profits), assisting in curriculum development (K-12 and college level), managing display screens, managing the website, assisting in research, representing the project and coordinating participation from other communities. Important skills and experiences include excellent oral and written communication, project management, web management, strong computer aptitude, and a demonstrated interest in promoting sustainability. Exceptional organizational skills and a high level of responsibility are essential. Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The hired candidate will start in September or as soon as the position is filled.
