A rare thing is happening in the OSU Sustainability Office: we are recruiting for a full time position! With the departure of Sonja Mae, who held the Sustainability Program Specialist position for about three years, available is an unparalleled opportunity to help make Oregon State a more sustainable university.
This position will assist in the development and implementation of policies, plans and initiatives that improve the sustainability of the university by reducing environmental impact, fostering a culture of sustainability and providing professional services that enhance the instructional, research, and service goals of the university.
A major focus of the position is to help increase the efficiency of university resource consumption (electricity, natural gas, steam, water). Position duties include:
- 30% Utility data acquisition and meter hardware management.
- 30% Utility data management and analysis.
- 35% Sustainability assessment.
- 5% Professional development.
As a customer service organization, the position helps Capital Planning and Development and Facilities Services respond to campus community requests, while managing those expectations through customer education and outreach, and clear communication with stakeholders.
OSU commits to inclusive excellence by advancing equity and diversity in all that we do. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who demonstrate the ability to help us achieve our vision of a diverse and inclusive community.
