Now Hiring

The Institute of the Environment has openings for three job positions: Program Coordinator, Student Part-time Communications Assistant, and Administrative Assistant. Please scroll down for more information.

Program Coordinator

The Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions (CCASS) is seeking a professional individual for the position of CCASS/Native Nations Adaptation Program Coordinator who will be responsible for supporting multiple activities associated with CCASS, and one project in particular, the Haury Native Nations Climate Adaptation Program. This position will provide ongoing office management/program/grant support and event coordination for CCASS, including correspondence, scheduling of events, appointments and travel, business support and establishing and maintaining record systems.

For the Haury Native Nations program, the coordinator will support training and participation of Native American staff, students, and interns involved in climate adaptation planning and research efforts undertaken with tribes in Arizona and the Southwest, under guidance of an advisory committee of Native American scholars, tribal representatives and faculty involved in climate adaptation research and engagement. The person in this position must have good communication skills and initiative, while demonstrating excellent judgment and ability to work independently.

CCASS fosters and facilitates cross-campus, community, state, national, and worldwide collaborations that promote resilience and adaptation to climate change challenges, promoting solution-driven opportunities created by such challenges. The Haury Native Nations Program is a new program that aims to build tribal capacity to meet challenges associated with climate change and build collaborative networks among tribes and with scholars to help meet these challenges. The position will allow work already being undertaken at UA to be strategically targeted to promote adaptation activities within Native Nations and coordinate on-campus activities so that they build capacity and facilitate outreach to various tribes on climate change, drought, natural resource issues, and vulnerability assessment.
