The History-Social Science Project at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applications for an Academic Coordinator appointment.

The Academic Coordinator reports to the Director of the University of California, Berkeley History-Social Science Project and will have access to shared work space in the UCBHSSP office, located in the Department of History at UC Berkeley. Regular travel to partner organizations and school sites will be required. Access to a car is needed. This position’s renewal after the initial year is dependent on available funding.
