Position available - Nanotechnology Project Coordinator

 4 or 5 days/ week position.

Are you an environment or social justice campaigner who's passionate about science and technology issues? We're looking for a new coordinator for our nanotechnology work. Applications close Tuesday 14 February 2012.

The FoEA Nanotechnology Project has existed since 2005. Its aim is to achieve precautionary management of nanotechnology’s environment and health risks, just oversight of social and economic dimensions, and to ensure that public participation guides nanotechnology decision making (see http://nano.foe.org.au).

The Nanotechnology Project coordinator’s primary responsibility is to facilitate the development, and ensure implementation, of the strategic plan agreed on an annual basis by the Nanotechnology Project collective. The coordinator maintains an overarching view of the political, commercial and scientific landscapes and supports other members of the collective to achieve the project’s aims. A key focus of the position is building the public profile of nanotechnology issues and building the capacity of civil society to engage in the emerging nanotechnology debate.

The position can be based in Melbourne, Brisbane or by negotiation. Applications close Tuesday 14 February. A full position description and details for application can be found at: http://nano.foe.org.au/PD-nanotech
