Job Posting 4/2 - Columbia University/Earth Institute - Global Roundtable on Climate Change - Coordinator position

Didn't see an application deadline on this - got this on my e-mail on March 16 (so a little dated).


The Global Roundtable on Climate Change is hiring a Program Coordinator. The
Global Roundtable on Climate Change is the Earth Institute¹s effort to
assist global consensus and catalyze effective cross-sectoral action on
climate change. The Roundtable brings together high level stakeholders from
business, civil society and government to discuss responses to climate
change and attempt to reach consensus on some basic elements of an
international strategy to mitigate and adapt to climate change. See for more information.

The Program Coordinator conducts background research on climate related business and policy developments, helps to draft and edit documents and communications, co-authoring conference papers and other publications, assists with the bi-monthly newsletter, handles communication with participant companies, keeps a database of participants, scheduling meetings, supports all aspects of the operation of GROCC, and supervises two student work study employees.

This is a great opportunity for people interested in climate change, environmental policy issues, business and the environment. It is also a good networking opportunity, with lots of interaction with corporate environmental representatives and ngo¹s working on the issue.

This is a Columbia University grade 10 position, with salary in the 40s and full benefits.

Resumes and cover letters should be submitted to:

Kate Brash
Program Manager
