Climate Hub Hiring Graduate Students Again!

My name is Adriana Laurent and I work for the Climate Hub at UBC.  

We are currently recruiting a Graduate Academic Assistant for our Indigenous Engagement and Climate Change position. The GAA will be working closely with Dr. Jan Hare and the rest of the Indigenous Engagement Working Group for the UBC Climate Emergency. The deadline to apply is on September 27th through Careers Online. 

I was wondering if it would be possible to share this with your graduate student networks! 

Here is our Facebook post and Instagram post. I’ve also attached an image if it’s easier to share that way. 

 

Thank you so much! 

Best,  

Adriana Laurent
