Subject: extension position

Attached are a short and long version of a position description for a new extension associate in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University. The person will be project leader for an NSF grant that focuses on youth conducting participatory research in urban community gardens and in rural home gardens to document ethnic and traditional gardening practices. Because it involves working with ethnically diverse audiences, individuals with international experience may be particularly interested. It is being advertised at the MS level, although it might provide a good opportunity for a PhD who wants to gain education experience (it is a three-year position).

Please pass this along to listservs and potential candidates. Thanks very much, Marianne Krasny
