Are you a detail-oriented person skilled in administrative support, and looking to effect positive change in this world? Would you be motivated to support communications and educational programming to advance innovative environmental policy solutions? If so, the Environmental Law Institute may have the perfect job for you. ELI is looking for a highly organized and self-motivated ADMINISTRATIVE ASSOCIATE, RESEARCH & POLICY to help us fulfill our mission of fostering innovative, just, and practical law and policy solutions to enable leaders across borders and sectors to make environmental, economic, and social progress.
While the Administrative Associate will engage with staff across ELI, their primary focus will be on supporting Research & Policy division activities in two areas. A major focus will be on supporting the organization of educational workshops and events. Some of the events are annual (such as ELI’s Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review, Clean Water Act workshops for state and tribal officials, and Environmental Law Boot Camps), and some will be ad hoc and/or intermittent (such as training programs for judges, working group meetings, and other Research project convenings). The other major focus for this position will be working with Research & Policy division staff to help keep ELI’s website updated. After training and with support of ELI’s webmaster, the Administrative Associate will establish and manage a system for updating project and program webpages under the direction of project personnel. The Administrative Associate, who reports to the Associate Vice President, Research & Policy, will also engage in other operational tasks and activities that support the Research & Policy division.
