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 (www.environmentaldashboard.org). This novel communications platform, developed by Oberlin College faculty and students, combines real-time feedback on resource use and environmental quality with messages drawn from community members to engage, educate, motivate and empower positive change in thought and action. A decade of peer-reviewed research demonstrates the positive impact of this technology on communities. The technology was recently featured in the award winning international documentary on climate solutions “2040”. Through successful implementations in NE Ohio, our ultimate goal is to develop, disseminate and support implementation of this communication technology for interested communities throughout the world.
The hire will assist in all aspects of project management including overseeing student workers, coordination among community partners (e.g. school teachers, city officials, businesses, non-profits), assisting in curriculum development (K-12 and college level), managing digital signs, managing the website and social media, assisting in research, representing the project and marketing the project to other communities. Important skills and experiences include: excellent oral and written communication, web management, strong aptitude for using and teaching software, and a demonstrated interest in promoting sustainability. Graphic and web design skills are a plus. A demonstrated ability to own, manage and execute on all aspects of successful projects is essential. Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Click here for more details and to apply.
