Research Assistant – POSITION FILLED
Are you interested in environmental and sustainability policy?
Have you ever wondered what towns in Maine can do to support sustainability?
We are hiring 1-2 research assistants to collect and analyze data about the policies Maine towns adopt that promote sustainability. This is an opportunity to contribute to an innovative study, gain experience conducting social science research, and learn more about what happens at a local level to shape our towns.
Applicants should be interested in sustainability and local-level policy. A major in EES, economics, political science or related field is preferred. Experience using Excel is essential, as is attention to detail and the ability to keep organized electronic files. We are looking for applicants who can start as soon as possible, and can dedicate about 10 hours per week on this project.
To apply, email a short letter of interest, resume and contact information to Vanessa Levesque at: email@example.com.
