The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is a not-for-profit organization located in the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago that engages science leaders, policymakers, and the interested public on topics of nuclear risk, climate change, and disruptive technologies.
Founded more than 70 years ago by Manhattan Project physicists, the Bulletin is a globally recognized organization that curates a highly trafficked public-access website, publishes an award-winning journal, sets the iconic Doomsday Clock, and hosts a regular set of convenings. For more than 70 years, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has bridged the divide between scientific research, global security, and public engagement.
Working with the Bulletin’s President and CEO, the Arts Coordinator will help create a powerful new platform on which members of the creative community can present their work, interact with scientists, develop new frameworks at the intersection of art and science, and engage new audiences intent on solving the globe’s most pressing security challenges including: nuclear risk, climate change, and disruptive technologies.
This is a 10 hour per week job, perfect for a graduate student, or arts consultant. This is a grant-funded position and is supported through 2018, with the possibility of renewal. This position reports to the President and CEO and is located at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.
Engage the modern audience through partnerships with artists, spaces, and platforms connecting them to the vital research and policy debates in the Bulletin
