We are looking to hire an organizer part-time to help spread our “all of the above” message and help us build broader support across the climate movement. Our goal is to build up membership within the Climate Coalition and strengthen our education and advocacy activities. We need to get climate advocates to unify and agree to focus on getting to zero emissions using all types of clean energy—including nuclear energy—as advocated by Dr. James Hansen, Dr. Ken Caldeira and many, many others. And no, we are not the same as or connected to the UK-based Climate Coalition (at: https://www.theclimatecoalition.org/).
While this opening is starting out as a part-time position for a well-qualified person, we hope that, with your highly effective advocacy and help, we can build this into a full-time job. We are looking for someone who is already knowledgeable about climate change actively working to address the crisis in their personal and/or professional life—if voluntarily. You need to be familiar with clean energy technologies, including nuclear power, already have a pretty good idea of the magnitude of the challenge the world faces converting from dirty to clean energy and already support the premise that nuclear is part of the solution and we cannot afford not to have all guns blazing against emissions.
The ideal candidate is a graduate student working towards an advanced degree in a related area who is experienced with social media and well-connected within scientific, engineering, clean energy and/or environmental communities, who is motivated and self-managing and who has between 5 and 15 spare hours a week to devote to creative outreach efforts. You should have a command of the scientific understandings about climate change, excellent writing skills, a high attention to detail and be good at explaining complicated concepts in clear language! You also know how to get attention to issues using social media.
While there is a slight preference for someone located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are accepting applications from across the U.S. Please submit your resume with a cover letter that describes your climate interest, activities (provide any relevant twitter, FB, Instagram or other social media accounts) and other compelling qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
