Princeton University's Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment—formerly known as the Program in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy or STEP—based at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (WWS), seeks a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and highly-motivated Assistant Director who will serve as the faculty director's advisor and representative, providing vision and leadership and overseeing the Center's strategic development and day-to-day operations. The Assistant Director should have demonstrated experience in both establishing and sustaining a comprehensive portfolio of academic and research programs and activities.
C-PREE is a multidisciplinary center that fosters research and learning. In its teaching and research, C-PREE blends scientific knowledge and methods with social science and practitioner perspectives in ways that yield practical solutions to the major environmental and technological challenges facing the world today.
The Assistant Director is the primary public face of C-PREE-clearly articulating the Center's mission, vision, and goals to a broad constituency-and playing a vital role in the management and direction of the center as the principal administrator for its core programming, education and outreach on Princeton's campus and beyond. This individual develops, plans, and executes the center's seminar series, conferences, and lectures; helps recruit visiting researchers and policy experts, coordinating the selection and appointment process; contributes to the Center's research initiatives; promotes and supports the Center's educational offerings-currently, a master's degree certificate program, a joint fellowship certificate with Princeton Environmental Institute, and a doctoral track in science, technology, and environmental policy-and other courses and student programs; develops the center's multi-year budget in collaboration with the Director and is responsible for the careful and appropriate management of center funds and other resources; manages day-to-day center operations; cultivates high profile research collaborations and joint public events with other centers, programs, and institutions at WWS and across Princeton; manages public communications through the website, social media, and print materials; coordinates grant proposal development, writing, and submission on behalf of the Center's principal investigators as appropriate and necessary.
