Jobs

The Center is currently accepting applications for the following positions:

The Center of Concern (Center) invites applications for the position of Director, Integral Ecology Project. This project reflects one of the Center's mission-oriented strategic priorities: research, education, and advocacy to promote the principled stewardship of human, ecological, and financial capital for a just and flourishing global community.

In a world where climate change, resource depletion, and ecological degradation have become salient and alarming features of daily life, ethical reflection on dominant approaches to development supports the need for systematic transformation to promote principled, strategic, and holistic approaches to quality growth that alleviate poverty while preserving and enlarging resources within and across generations. The director of the Integral Ecology Project contributes thought and executive leadership on behalf of the Center to advance productive dialogue and public policy regarding such issues.

Please submit a letter outlining your interest and a resume by 1 May to jobs@coc.org. No calls, please.

For additional information, please see the detailed position description.

Internships
