The Duke Climate Commitment seeks a graduate student who will be living in Washington, D.C., this summer to coordinate the delivery of a pilot certificate program at the intersection of climate, sustainability, and policy. The non-credit-bearing short course program will take place over four evenings during the weeks of July 12 and 19, 2023, and is aimed at working professionals in the D.C. region to learn from Duke faculty about policy issues related to climate change and sustainability.

We are looking for a graduate student to help facilitate the delivery of this short, non-credit-bearing course, in collaboration with the different faculty members who will each be teaching. In addition to being present for all meetings of the short course, the facilitator must be available to assist with course planning logistics remotely during the summer in the three weeks leading up to the planned meetings. The facilitator must be able to help students connect learnings from one class to the next and must be available to host office hours each week. Additionally, the facilitator will review any submitted student assignments to provide qualitative feedback.

The facilitator will receive a stipend of $1,500 plus fringe as compensation for their work in helping pilot this program. Graduate and professional students from any Duke program are eligible to apply but must be eligible to work in the United States.
