Wildfire Smoke & Climate Resilience Specialist
Climate Smart Missoula
"This part-time position begins in late April or May, lasts at least five months, and will focus on implementing components of Climate Smart Missoula’s climate resiliency efforts. This position will support an EPA Environmental Justice grant awarded to Climate Smart Missoula, Clean Air— Healthy Homes: co-creating a wildfire smoke ready community. This is a collaborative initiative to address negative health outcomes during ever-increasing wildfire smoke episodes by co-creating a Wildfire Smoke Ready Action Plan and programs based on outreach, surveys, and investigations with local Indigenous and underserved communities. The position also includes work on extreme heat preparedness.
This part time, flexible position may be extended beyond the initial 5-month period, depending on funding and organizational priorities. This position is ideal for an individual who, given family, caregiving, work, or other considerations, desires less than full time employment (a minimum of ~20 hours/week from May – September is necessary). The Specialist reports to the Executive Director, and collaborates with other Climate Smart staff, local government, other area non-profit organizations, and community leaders. Hourly wage is between $20 - $25 and commensurate with experience."
