Associate Director Position at GMU’s Center for Climate Change Communication

The mission of the Center for Climate Change Communication is to develop and apply social science insights to help society make informed decisions that will stabilize the earth’s life-sustaining climate, and prevent further harm from climate change. The center currently has six major program areas: public opinion research; climate journalism; health professionals as climate communicators; detecting and debunking misinformation; conservatives as climate communicators; and a climate communication internship program with the National Park Service.

The Associate Director at the Center for Climate Change Communication will work closely with 4C director, Edward Maibach, to refine the strategic focus of the Center as needed, and to ensure that the operations, activities, and resources of the Center are advancing the Center’s mission to the extent possible. The Associate Director will be responsible for overall support of the mission, program development and fundraising, program management, public relations and marketing, communication, supervision, facilities, information systems, and administrative advocacy.

Priority will be given to applicants who have progressively responsible management and leadership experience, including proven effectiveness in the use of audience research and strategic communication to advance important societal goals; a track record of fundraising effectiveness in support of applied research and/or strategic communication initiatives; and a solid understanding of climate change, including its causes, impacts and risk management options.
