Hiring Two Summer Associates

Monday, March 23, 2015

Public Architecture seeks two Summer Associates to work closely with and support Public Architecture’s fulltime professional staff of three.

Past projects led by our Summer Associates have varied widely, from conducting interviews about pro bono design with some of the country’s top architects to generating sustainability guidelines for participants in The 1% program, and developing a program for material reuse within The 1%. The majority of the work this summer will involve supporting the launch and transition of our new websites and other important initiatives, including the biannual member survey as well as graphic design, research, writing, and help with outreach efforts. Once on staff, the Summer Associates play in integral role in moving forward many of our organization's initiatives and are encouraged to participate as a full member of the staff at our weekly staff meetings. 

Sample Responsibilities 
-- Coordinate and support the launch of a new national initiative around social impact and pro bono design. Provide outreach to professional association chapters as well as other external partners.

 -- Coordinate the biannual survey to member firms and nonprofits, and manage the distribution, response rate and ongoing outreach.

-- Research and develop case studies on pro bono design projects.
-- Manage, and in some cases modify, visual and written content to complete the transition from our old websites to the new websites, including content such as knowledge resources, articles and projects.

 -- Monitor and test the new websites’ functionality; problem-solve and report issues.

-- Work with staff to integrate our new identity and branding into new and existing graphic materials.

-- Assist Public Architecture’s communications via social media and our websites as well as program outreach to member firms and nonprofits.


Required Experience & Skills
--Candidates must currently be enrolled in as undergraduate or graduate at a college or university

--Outstanding organizational skills with attention to detail

--Ability to think analytically

--Effective communication skills

--A vested interest in and commitment to Public Architecture’s mission and activities

--Strong writing and editing skills

--Computer literacy in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Adobe Creative Suite

--Vertical Response / Salesforce experience a plus 


Duration
June through August 2015. Dates are negotiable.
 


Location
Summer Associates will work in Public Architecture’s office, located in the heart of San Francisco’s South of Market district.
 

Compensation
Public Architecture requires that Summer Associates secure funding or academic credit from their academic institution or similar entity. Many schools offer public service grants or stipends that allow students to work in a community-oriented or nonprofit environment. Previous summer associates with Public Architecture have received support from the Harvard Graduate School of Design Community Service Fellowship, Smith College Praxis Program, Vanderbilt University Ingram Fellowship Program, UC Berkeley Judith Stronach Fellowship, and University of Virginia Externship Program. Information on such grants is generally available through departmental, financial, or career service offices. If needed, Public Architecture can provide a letter of support to aid in the grant application process, but we are not in a position to provide matching funds.
 


Application Process
All application materials are received on a rolling basis until the deadline of April 30th. Required materials include a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample. Materials should be addressed to Zach Reisler, RISE Fellow, Public Architecture. All materials should be submitted by email to Zach@publicarchitecture.org with “Summer Associate Application” as the subject of your email. A single PDF is preferred. Please limit file size to 5MB. A shortlist of candidates will be interviewed by phone, unless local. Final determination is expected by May.
