Environmental Career Worker Training Program Coordinator
UCLA-LOSH is hiring a coordinator for the Environmental Career Worker Training Program (ECWTP), to coordinate the ECWTP of UCLA-LOSH and the Western Region Universities Consortium (WRUC) funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

The coordinator works with all partners to establish systems to coordinate and document recruitment, training, job placement and retention, and to strengthen relationships with local and regional workforce development, government agency representatives, environmental justice, and labor groups. The coordinator serves as primary ECWTP liaison with local community-based partners, regional partners in the West and Northwest, the National Institute of Environment Health Sciences (NIEHS) and other NIEHS grantees. The coordinator teaches, develops and/or adapts curricula on relevant topics such as, health & safety, workforce development, environmental justice, and green building. UCLA-LOSH is a nationally recognized program and the lead organization of the NIEHS-funded Western Region Universities Consortium. LOSH develops education programs and conducts research to inform public policy.
