Open Environmental Data Project (OEDP) seeks a Civic Science Fellow from March 2024-2025.
OEDP is accepting applications through January 17th
This is a remote, full-time position that works with OEDP and is a member of a cohort of fellows, placed across other organizations working on questions about science and society, that make up the Civic Science fellowship.
OEDP seeks a Civic Science Fellow to focus on open data and environmental data governance ecosystems. The Fellow will build on opportunities identified by OEDP team members to prototype and pilot ideas and prepare workshops, training, and curricula to support environmental data literacy and usability.
The overall goal of this position is to develop first-hand experience working across different scales of governance and to research and develop materials for science and information projects. The Fellow will work with our team to identify:
- where existing datasets need to be translated into more usable formats,
- the processes, decision-making principles, and political tools that can support data’s application in environmental justice and governance, and
- opportunities for systems redesign.
As part of a broader Fellows program, you’ll be part of a cohort of Fellows who are positioned across different scientific associations, organizations and institutions, providing you with a peer learning group focused on scientific and societal challenges.
