Full-Time Project Manager

Schatz Energy Research Center – Posted by SchatzCenter Arcata, California, United States

Job Description

The Schatz Energy Research Center at Humboldt State University is currently seeking an experienced professional to join our team as a Project Manager. This position will provide project management for efforts within our microgrid and distributed energy portfolio. This is a full-time, benefited position based in Arcata, CA, with the option for remote work initially. This position is expected to start on or near February 16, 2022.

We have a growing portfolio of work related to clean energy microgrids and distributed energy that will be the focus area for this position. These key technologies are critical for supporting a broad transition to renewable and clean energy systems. We are selective with the projects we take on, focusing on those with potential for significant impact in accelerating progress towards the clean energy transition on a just and equitable pathway.

The person selected for this position will be embedded with a team of researchers — including faculty, professional staff, and undergraduate and graduate students — who are committed to understanding and improving these emerging technology systems. This role will be responsible for project management activities of several projects at a time (depending on the size and scope of the projects). This position has the potential to develop into a program management role, involving strategic leadership within a research area and management of a portfolio of related projects.

We welcome applications from everyone who is legally eligible to work in the United States. Please note that we operate under the California State University mandate which requires all students, staff, and faculty to be either (a) fully vaccinated or (b) qualify for a medical or religious exemption (in which case weekly testing is required).
