The Office of Sustainability and Energy and the Climate Readiness Institute have an opening for a one year GSR position.  Working on a TGIF-funded Climate Vulnerability Assessment grant, the GSR will work on a detailed assessment of the campus’ vulnerability to future climate change impacts.  In the first phase – Initiating Assessment and Developing Vulnerability Report – the TGIF funds would cover the cost of a graduate student (GSR) for one year (at 10 hours per week) to support the analysis, write the Report, and participate on the team.   Specifically, the student will be asked to conduct the initial research, under the supervision of expert faculty and the project leaders, on regional science studies and draft the assessment of climate-related threats.

Application information:  Please send your cover letter, resume and a writing sample to Lisa McNeilly ( (link sends e-mail)).  The position starts upon hire and ends June 2017.  The job description is available here.
