Are you interested in the intersection of ocean science and policy and want to be part of building solutions for current and future ocean issues? If so, we invite you to apply to join our team. We catalyze research innovation and action to improve the health of the oceans for the people who depend on them the most. COS capitalizes on Stanford’s broad expertise in ocean science and in the many other disciplines crucial to developing ocean solutions including engineering, computer science, political science, design and business. Our core team of researchers and fellows partner with other research institutions, national and international non-governmental organizations, businesses and governments, as well as established and emerging leaders in the data revolution.
The Research Assistant will work on one of COS' key initiatives, Sustainable Ocean Economies, with a primary focus on a collaborative project with the Palau International Coral Reef Center. Responsibilities of the Research Assistant include supporting the Research Manager, Research Analyst, and existing Research Fellows through research, synthesis, writing, referencing, and organizing.
This position requires a 3-month commitment of 8–16 hours per week, beginning in mid-September and ending in mid-December. It will be based at the Center for Ocean Solutions office at Stanford University (Palo Alto) or Hopkins Marine Station (Monterey). Some work can be done remotely.
Applications are due by August 16th.
