Job Opportunity: Program manager – RIfS project office

RIfS is a new core project of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), which has been advancing international collaboration in climate science for 40+ years. RIfS will work to narrow the gap between scientific advances and users of climate information. There is a lot of important work to be done building consensus on how to utilize physical climate data for decision-making, improving data access and equity, and so much more.  

We’re looking for entrepreneurial generalists to join a small team with big ambitions. You will be integral in setting up RIfS for success, as part of a small initial team with our director. You should be familiar with climate science and the institutions around it, international non-profits, and/or related domains. 
This role is for as a Program Manager, responsible for operations, logistics, and interfacing with internal and external partners. This role does not require expertise in climate science, but some background is preferred. We hope to find someone with experience in climate and/or environmental non-profits who has worked internationally beyond Europe and North America. 

As a small office, we all need to chip in to help with administrative tasks on occasion. We value collaboration, empathy, inclusivity, and being communicative and proactive. We will favor candidates who can demonstrate cultural competency to work with diverse populations internationally.
