Job Posting - Development Officer — Journal of CESaRE
The Journal of Caribbean Environmental Sciences and Renewable Energy (CESaRE) was developed in 2016 out of a recognized need to modernize and revolutionize the Caribbean's scientific research publishing.
There are over 170 Caribbean research publications in the past 5 years falling under the broad field of environmental sciences, found scattered over a large variety of International journals, without a central (Caribbean) location to collate this knowledge. With the global shift towards renewable over traditional energy sources, together with a rise in environmental consciousness, this a perfect opportunity for highlighting such research conducted in the Caribbean.
CESaRE will provide a suitable forum to encourage research into renewable energy, as well as the environmental sciences. CESaRE promises to be more than just a collection of articles, but also a forum to disseminate information and bridge the gap between research and implementation, from which Caribbean leaders, relevant industry partners, and authorities can use our Journal for more effective decision making and environmental management.
As a newly established NGO (based in Trinidad and Tobago), The Journal of Caribbean Environmental Sciences and Renewable Energy (CESaRE) is seeking a Development Officer to work as a consultant to raise funds for our innovative projects. As a regional NGO, you can work from anywhere and you are expected to be flexible with your hours and time. We rely on the efforts of many people who believe in our Vision. Our Managing Directors have a strong mandate of increasing information access and revamping academic publication in the Caribbean. Too many people are left with a poor understanding of our diverse and sensitive region, and CESaRE will play a strong role in modern and innovative approaches. Youwill work directly with the Managing Directors, finding potential funding opportunities, communicating our progress to donors, and building relationships with our benefactors. Your role will be for 4 months from the start date with the opportunity for a more permanent role. Please refer to the accompanying job advertisement for further detail.REQUIREMENTS
