The Photojournalist project assistant position(s) are located in Keene, NH at Antioch University with occasional travel to NorthStar’s Vermont Yankee decommissioning nuclear site in Vernon, VT. Antioch University New England, through the Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience, has entered a strategic partnership with NorthStar and the Town of Vernon to create an innovative model of collaboration for site restoration planning that will support redevelopment efforts at the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant site once it realizes decommissioning. This type of unprecedented collaboration and partnership will yield multiple benefits to the Town of Vernon, State of Vermont, Antioch University, NorthStar, and other stakeholders involved in the decommissioning and site restoration process. Overall lessons learned will be instrumental in guiding best practices moving forward for subsequent site decommissioning(s) and arrangements for restoration and redevelopment. The following are the specific tasks and deliverables for the position(s):
- Attend the bi-weekly Center meeting at Antioch University New England or on zoom session;
- Approximately 2 hours a week photo journaling the decommissioning process. The student will not need to travel to the site every week but will be required to spend time at the site during key decommissioning moments throughout the semester. (This can be adjusted based on current health landscape.) These site visits can be scheduled based on the student’s existing schedule and required time at Antioch. However, it does require the student to have reliable transportation. It also may require the student to be available within 72 hours to document historic events that occur on the site. This position requires the student to have access to a camera or smartphone with photo taking ability;
- Create marketable materials to showcase best practices of the project;
- Contribute to a draft white paper, with site supervisor support, on the process of creating the landscape suitability analysis along with the overall partnership and project.
Qualifications: Applicant must have excellent documentation skills along with the ability to take basic photographs. Ability to work with others and communicate effectively is essential for the position. Ability to craft effective storytelling preferred. Experience with creating publications or basic graphic design is desired. We are actively seeking individuals who are self-directed and motivated to move this project forward and to effectively support the Center’s vision and mission, in collaboration with the supervisor. Additional qualifications include organizational and time management skills, flexibility, strong interpersonal skills, capacity to work independently, and ability to network. Personal computer or access to campus library computer services required.
