Now Hiring: Reader/Grader at Program on the Environment!

Program on the Environment (PoE) has an excellent opportunity for a Reader/Grader for the Autumn 2012 quarter.
The reader/grader will provide support for ENVIR 490 (Pre-Capstone Seminar) and ENVIR 492 (Post-Capstone Seminar) in the Autumn Quarter of 2012.

As such, the reader/grader will copyedit not only traditional academic products (rough and final drafts of papers) but also resumes and work plans.
