The Doctoral and Graduate Students’ Council (DSC) seeks candidates for the open positions of Coordinator for Advocacy and Education and Coordinator for Organization and Planning at the CUNY Adjunct Project.

 

The Adjunct Project is an affiliate organization of the DSC. Its three co-coordinators work with each other, the DSC, and labor organizing efforts on and off campus to advocate for, share information with, and collaboratively build the power of CUNY adjuncts and Graduate Center student workers. The organization has as its mandate to raise consciousness on the state of academic labor as a whole.
The two new coordinators will serve alongside one other coordinator from October 2019 to June 30, 2020, with the possibility of reappointment, and be paid an annual stipend of approximately $4,787.60 to be paid in monthly payments throughout the year. Applicants must be matriculated Graduate Center students with experience as CUNY adjuncts or adjunct-equivalent roles.

The successful applicant will work together with the other coordinators of the Adjunct Project, who are collectively responsible for:

  • organizing with CUNY adjuncts and student workers around working conditions and overlapping struggles;
  • planning workshops, discussions, and other programming aligned with the Adjunct Project’s mission;
  • liaising with other groups on CUNY campuses, including but not limited to the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), adjunct groups, and undergraduate groups;
  • stimulating awareness, discussion, and collective action around adjunct and student worker issues among the broader Graduate Center community as well as across the CUNY campuses;
  • identifying changes in national, state, and local labor relations relevant to graduate student adjuncts;
  • updating website and social media content and producing other publicity and materials regarding issues, information, and events;
  • maintaining the Adjunct Project’s operations, including tracing finances and responding to emails;
  • ensuring that all activities of the Adjunct Project are consistent with the DSC Constitution and Bylaws; and
  • hiring consultants, contingent on need and funding.

We specifically seek applications from individuals with the ability to contribute to the continuing commitment of both the Adjunct Project and the DSC to equity and inclusion, social and cultural diversity, and the transformative power of our differences. The search committee invites applicants to identify their strengths and experiences in these areas and describe how they would further this goal at the Adjunct Project.
