and social justice approaches to environmental issues to advance just and sustainable outcomes in collaboration with communities. At the Tishman Center and The New School, sustainability is truly cross-disciplinary, incorporating and collaborative space that brings together stakeholders from a variety of disciplines, schools, and populations. The Center serves as a collaborative resource center and academic convener for environmental justice groups, community leaders, design, and climate experts to create discourse, dialogue, and action on today's most challenging issues.

GAIA is a worldwide alliance of more than 800 organization and individuals in over 90 countries working for justice and a world without waste. GAIAs work in the U.S. and Canada has helped to keep the public educated about the true climate, environmental and economic impacts of quick fix approaches to waste such as incineration, and they help to promote the benefits of alternative approaches like zero waste programs. GAIA has grounded its work in impacted communities by supporting organizations, alliances, and coalitions around the country that are fighting incinerators, advocating for zero waste, and pushing for environmental and climate justice.

As a part of this ongoing collaboration with GAIA, TEDC will be co-producing a report for a GAIA funded initiative with three pilot communities as they seek to transition away from an incineration based waste system to zero waste, just transition systems. We are seeking a dynamic and dedicated Research Assistant to assist with this research project.

The Research Assistant will support the TEDC- GAIA research partnership in the research, development and writing of a report focused on national conditions that will support the movement to shut down polluting, aging incinerators and develop viable alternatives so new incinerators do not consign the same communities to decades more pollution and health issues.

Job responsibilities include:

  • The compilation and coordination of research including quantitative, geographic, demographic, finance and qualitative data sources on baseline conditions in relation to incinerators nationally.

  • Policy analysis of regulatory and financial conditions that drive national incineration industry.

  • Development, production and presentation of a final report with GAIA partners full input.

Please submit a writing sample and two job references (please include full name, e-mail address, telephone number, and relationship to the applicant) along with your resume and cover letter.

This position offer opportunities for professional growth within the initiative. Candidates interested in developing a career in environmental justice, zero waste and/or community engagement will be given priority.

Position would begin May 2018 and go through May 2019 working full time in the summer and 10-20 hours/week during the academic year.
