The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is an independent national nonprofit whose scientists and engineers work to solve some of our planet’s most pressing environmental and safety problems. UCS combines technical analysis and effective organizing and advocacy to create innovative, practical solutions for stemming the tide of global warming, sustainable food policy and agriculture, energy and transportation, fighting misinformation and reducing the threat of catastrophic nuclear war.
UCS is in need of a detail-loving assistant: a great communicator, a superb scheduler, and a thorough and attentive note-taker who will support our important work on climate change and clean energy solutions. If you’re organized and efficient, you care about the world around you, and you’ve never met a calendar you couldn’t tame, we need you to help our program run as smoothly as possible. The program assistant will provide a broad range of administrative and logistical support for the Climate & Energy Program (C&E) program, in addition to office and IT support for the Chicago, IL office.
