CE3 is excited to announce openings for the Voinovich School’s successful Voinovich Scholar Program for the 2014-15 academic year. This is an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to work as part of the Voinovich School team in the areas of the environment, community economic development, health and education, entrepreneurship, public relations and communication and public policy.
For 2014-15, CE3 is seeking a Strategic Communications Specialist to help grow the connections between new media platforms and our research and outreach efforts related to water, energy, policy, waste and more. Successful candidates will be well versed in traditional, social and new media applications, be creative, be enthusiastic about environmental issues, and possess exceptional interpersonal and communication skills. Projects may include targeted messaging; website management; video development and editing; multimedia journalistic/communications pieces to grow website content; interfacing with CE3’s local, state and federal contacts; etc. Prospective scholars with an interest in learning about how communications can be a thoughtful and exciting tool to advance the issues of policy, technology, business, economic development and energy/environmental issues are encouraged to apply. Past Voinovich Scholars have benefited from on-the-job networking leading to internship, fellowship and job placement opportunities.
CE3 is a unique program housed at the Voinovich School on The Ridges whose mission is to bridge the gap between scientists and policymakers, to advance energy and environmental research, and to help explain the real-world impacts of policies on future energy availability and the natural environment. At CE3, faculty, staff, and students work together with local, state and federal government officials, industry representatives, and nonprofit groups on projects related to economic growth and environmental sustainability.
Whatever your major, learning how energy, economics and the environment are linked will better prepare you for any job. Become part of the new generation of graduates that bring a thorough understanding of sustainability into the workplace.
