Project Leader -- Garden Mosaics. Cornell University is seeking a project leader to
help provide leadership for and coordinate a nationwide informal science education program called Garden Mosaics.
Position is 22 months, with an anticipated start date of April 15, 2003. Applicants should have experience or be familiar
with informal science education for youth aged 10-18, research science, urban youth, Citizen Science, social action,
and collaborating with teachers or community educators. Applicants should have an MS or PhD in horticulture,
environmental science or related field, or in science, international, or Extension education. (This position is being
advertised at the Extension Associate level, which provides higher salary and better benefits than a post-doc. However,
PhD candidates should consider the experience similar to what would be provided in an education post-doc with a
primary focus on program development and secondary focus on research.)
Project leader will work with community educators in 11 cities across the US, who guide youth in conducting research
and action projects with elders in community and home gardens. Garden Mosaics participants contribute to national
databases on community gardens and ethnic and traditional gardening practices. See at
http://www.gardenmosaics.cornell.edufor more information about Garden Mosaics.
To apply, send cover letter, resume, and names of three references to: Ms. Nancy Bowers, Department of Natural
Resources, Fernow Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-3001. For further information, contact Ms. Bowers at email: nlb6
@cornell.edu or phone 607-255-2807. Review of applications will begin February 1, 2003, and will continue until a
suitable candidate is found.
