Communications Director of the Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative

by Marissa M. Donohue
Communications Director of the Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative (C2G2)
 
Context
Climate Geoengineering (CGE) is defined as deliberate, large-scale interventions in the Earth system to counteract climate change. There is increasing interest in CGE as the mitigation challenge of staying well below 2 degrees Celsius temperature rise – let alone 1.5 degrees – becomes more apparent. In the foreseeable future, governments or even non-state actors could turn to CGE options as a last resort or as means to buy time. Yet there is a considerable lack of understanding of the governance requirements of CGE.  Furthermore, no comprehensive governance framework(s) exist for addressing CGE – technologies that fundamentally require multilateral governance approaches.
There is hence an urgent need for a broad, inclusive global governance discussions regarding the research, possible testing and deployment decision-making process for CGE technologies that have significant, long-term and planetary-wide consequences for this and future generations. The C2G2 Initiative will address these issues by seeking to enlarge, accelerate and shift the discussion on CGE governance from academia to the intergovernmental policy community through systematic engagement with government representatives, intergovernmental and international non-governmental organizations, as well as other non-state actors. C2G2 does not promote the use of geoengineering techniques, neither is it a priori opposed to their consideration.
 
Reporting to, and under the supervision and guidance of the C2G2 Executive Director, and working closely with the Senior Strategy Director and Senior Programme Director, the incumbent will be responsible for creating, implementing and monitoring of an overall communications strategy for C2G2 directed toward intergovernmental organizations, governments, civil society, and non-state actors as well as the media and public audiences. The incumbent will work in a virtual team located in different areas of the world. She/he will also work closely with C2G2 partner organizations to ensure communications are well aligned and politically astute. 
 
The successful candidate will have a passion for creating compelling communications strategies, products and messages that convey complex ideas in clear, accessible words and images; evidence a strong knowledge of climate change issues – including the political, scientific and governance dimensions; and be highly self-motivated as well as an excellent team player. 
 
The incumbent will:
 
 
 Create, implement and monitor a global, multi-media communications strategy to publicize the mission, activities and results of C2G2’s work, demonstrating a careful understanding of the sensitivities involved in geoengineering governance, particularly with respect to global climate change politics. Development and implementation of this strategy includes website, extensive social media, podcast, film and print channels of communication.  
 
 Develop, write and oversee production of communications materials, including a website with regularly updated material, public announcements/summaries of event, media releases, and infographics and other visual information tools. Liaise closely with the C2G2 senior staff to ensure that written materials are consistent, clear and compelling; up-to-date key messages are incorporated into the outreach activities; and branding of the C2G2 Initiative is politically astute. Duties include proposing products; undertaking research; drafting and finalizing all text; and coordinating design approval, production, translation and distribution of materials, as needed. Incumbent will also work closely with key C2G2 partners on joint or adapted communication products that both organizations can use; 
 
 Undertake activities to promote media coverage of C2G2’s work, including preparing media plans, initiating, organizing and overseeing media events, webinars, briefings, press conferences and interviews; initiating pro-active media outreach to relevant reporters; responding or channeling requests from media for information; and analyzing and reporting on the impact of media coverage; 
 
 Initiate and sustain professional relationships with key journalists who cover geoengineering,  climate science and climate change issues; work closely with the Executive Director and Senior Strategy Director and Senior Programme Director to write messaging guidance and talking points for staff, Advisory Group members and other key stakeholders.; 
 
 Provide support to C2G2 colleagues by identifying communications and outreach opportunities; proposing and implementing agreed media and publicity initiatives; and working with colleagues to write and prepare articles, documents and presentations. 
 
 Perform other duties as assigned. 
 
Qualifications:
·       Experience leading the design, implementation, and monitoring of global multi-media communications strategies that engage policymaker and civil society audiences.  Ability to identify strategic communications opportunities and initiate and execute plans in an international context;
·       Excellent English language communications and writing skills; very strong media, social media and event-organizing skills;  
·       Sophisticated knowledge of global climate change issues, including climate science, international climate politics, and the key civil society and intergovernmental actors therein; 
·       Ability to simplify complex ideas while being mindful of potential political pitfalls; 
·       An independent self-starter, able to work on her/his own and as part of a small, virtual global team;
·       A genuine interest in climate change issues and the mission of the C2G2 Initiative.

Research Technician (Game Birds): Hawaii

by Marissa M. Donohue

Title: Research Technician (Game Birds): Hawaii

Agency: University of Wyoming

Type: Temporary/Seasonal Positions

Website: https://www.facebook.com/hawaii.vine.project/

Salary: $1000 per month plus housing and use of vehicle

Start date: flexible, but early July is preferred

End date: 6 month commitment is required with the potential to extend

Last date to apply: 5/10/2017

Technician needed (1 position) to study game bird ecology as part of a seed
dispersal study on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Forest ecosystems of the
Hawaiian Islands have increasingly faced threats of species extinction and
biological invasion, resulting in novel communities composed of native and
nonnative species. Although many native Hawaiian plants rely on birds for
seed dispersal, nearly all native frugivorous birds are extinct. In the
last century, the Kalij Pheasant (Lophura leucomelanos) and Erckel¹s
Francolin (Pternistis erckelii) were introduced to the Hawaiian Islands for
recreational hunting. We are investigating the ecological impacts of these
2 species on seed dispersal networks.

Technician responsibilities will include line transect surveys, bird
capture and banding, GPS telemetry, behavioral observations, vegetation
surveys, fecal sample collection, seed identification with microscope, and
data entry. Fieldwork will involve long days of strenuous hiking and heavy
lifting in temperamental weather conditions.

The technician will mostly work independently but in close contact with the
Hawaii VINE Project, a collaborative research effort seeking to determine
how well different species of non-native vertebrates disperse native plant
species. Technician will be working and living with a crew of 4-5 field
techs that is predominantly focused on study of seed dispersal by
songbirds. Technician will be solely responsible for game bird fieldwork
once the graduate student leaves, and will report to a graduate student
that will be off island for most of the field season.

Start date is flexible, but early July is preferred. The duration of this
position is 6 months, with the potential to extend. Technician will be
provided with housing, a living stipend of $1,000 per month, and access to
vehicles.

Qualifications: A bachelor¹s degree in wildlife biology, zoology, ecology
or a related field and at least two years of field experience pertaining to
wildlife biology or botany are required. Experience working with game bird
species or demonstrated knowledge of Hawaiian forest ecosystems may
substitute some requirements. Applicant must be responsible, organized, and
comfortable working independently. An enthusiasm for research and fieldwork
is essential, as well as patience and a strong work ethic.

Contact: Please email a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact
information for three references as a single PDF document to Sam Case
(Sam.Case.Hawaii@gmail.com) by May 10th, 2017. A phone number and email
address must be included for each reference.
