Harvey Mudd College professor Paul Steinberg (political science and environmental policy; Malcolm Lewis Chair of Sustainability and Society) is offering two (2) part-time positions to assist him with publicity and outreach for the documentary film, Bicycle Revolution.
Job Description: Professor Paul Steinberg of Harvey Mudd College is looking to hire two students currently enrolled at the Claremont Colleges to work 5 hours per week on outreach and publicity relating to the documentary film Bicycle Revolution, to be released in fall 2017. The film follows the experience of Claremont students in a course exploring the politics of creating more bike-friendly cities in the Los Angeles Region. The work will begin in the fall semester, but ideally the students can do some advance legwork during the summer. The summer work need not take place in Claremont.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for active transportation issues and social change. Most of the work will involve identifying and reaching out to relevant community organizations throughout the US who might want to screen the film and helping with the associated logistics. The students need to be good communicators, skilled at motivating people, energetic, good an organizing, and resourceful.
The position will pay standard Harvey Mudd pay rates, which vary according to the student’s experience and year. There is some flexibility in the hours, such that a student could front load more work one week to keep the schedule clear for exams the next, but a 5-hour per week average availability is essential. If interested, please send a couple of paragraphs describing your interests, relevant background, and availability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
