2018 Dashboard Fellowship Positions (and WT opportunities)

The Environmental Dashboard is seeking qualified student applicants to fill three distinct positions described below that require a variety of communication, editing and computer science skills. Students accepted can be paid or receive academic credit for their work during the semester. WT 2018 project opportunities are also available. The Environmental Dashboard (ED) is a communication technology developed in Oberlin and now being implemented in other communities that combines public display of resource use and environmental quality through entire communities with photographs and messages drawn from community interviews (www.environmentaldashboard.org). The goal of these linked components is to empower thought and action that strengthen community, sustainability and resilience. As described below, individual fellows will focus on distinct areas of the project -- we are looking to add new members to a highly collaborative team. The three positions require very distinct skills and responsibilities -- don’t be put off if some of these require skills you don’t have or don’t interest you.

Software Developer: We seek an experienced programmer for collaborative work on a number of web application projects. We are looking for students with: experience programming in PHP, experience with object-oriented programming (who follow the SOLID design principles), and experience working with databases. The person selected will take responsibility for implementing various backend and frontend components of a rather large application including a user interface that interacts extensively with a database. Additional applicant qualities that would be useful include: experience in MVC or MVC-like (MVVM, MVP, etc…) technology; knowledge of separation between domain/business logic, presentation logic; experience in domain-modelling; knowledge of domain-driven design. Ability to work independently, as part of a team and with lots of self-motivation and creativity are essential.

Community Voices and Educational Content Manager The Community Voices component of the ED project leverages social psychology to combine images and words to celebrate thought and action that move communities towards sustainability. Photographs and text gathered from interviews with community members emphasize neighbors, children, nature, community service, social justice, heritage and local economic development. The fellow working on this component will manage a database of photographs and text, solicit and develop new content, conduct interviews, edit articles and participate in research to assess the impact. The fellow will also assist in editing and managing educational content developed by and for teachers who are using Environmental Dashboard in K-12 curriculum. Qualifications include: a high level of responsibility and initiative; strong organizational skills; a high level of comfort engaging with the public; strong interview and editing skills; and experience working in the Oberlin community. Photographic skills are a plus.

Social Media Manager The Social Media Manager will keep an interested public informed and updated on developments within Environmental Dashboard using a variety of social media venues and promotional materials. The manager will create and publish timely content for all social media platforms. Qualifications include: prior experience managing social media, strong networking skills, strong editing skills, a high level of responsibility and initiative; strong organizational skills; a high level of comfort engaging with the public.

Send a cover letter describing your interest in one or more of these positions and a resume outlining course, job and extracurricular experiences that are relevant to position to: augustus.arthur@oberlin.edu and john.petersen@oberlin.edu. We will begin reviewing applicants immediately with the goal of providing initial training during this semester in preparation for WT projects and/or spring hiring.
