I'm looking for someone to help us rally the Institute by spreading the word, run event logistics and help us manage the multitude of details that make the IDEAS Global Challenge a success. Our events are one of the key touchpoints of the program and engage people from around the Institute and leaders from organizations worldwide. The events happen both on and off campus.

This year beyond our standard set of events, we're launching with collaborators around the Institute, our first one-day conference on technology dissemination for development.

I see this person as being adept at organizing details big and small, creative, good with people, a strong communicator, and fun to work with. This person will anticipate, plan and execute what we need in advance of an event, what needs to happen on the day of and follow up coverage.

In particular, here's what you would do:

Ideally, you're a graduate student whose time is flexible to match dates of events. We can talk about a calendar in person.

Is this you? Drop Kate Mytty a note: kmytty@mit.edu
