Job Opening - Sustainability Information Design - MS Level

Santa Barbara, CA- Researchers at UCSB have recently completed a groundbreaking study assessing the environmental implications of managing a significant hazardous waste stream.  The only problem- the state's legislators, who called for the study, do not have the training to understand our comprehensive but highly technical report, and they are pressed for time.  We need you to help us build an interactive web application to communicate our results.

Information is crucial for sustainability decision-making, but the tools for communicating this information with regulators, industry stakeholders, and the public are critically underdeveloped.  Help us build a better tool.

We are: a small group of environmental researchers at a top-tier research university on California's beautiful central coast, offering excellent working conditions and a competitive salary with comprehensive benefits.

You are: skilled in front-end web design and interested in the policy implications of sustainability research.  Required skills: HTML/CSS, javascript, jQuery, D3.js; ability to write clear, maintainable, open source code; familiarity with user interface design. Experience with ASP.NET and/or C# is desirable.

Apply here by November 29: https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF00266
