Events Coordinator

The Energy Institute is operated under the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) at Colorado State University. The Institute builds on the long history of work in energy at CSU and is intended to foster greater collaboration among energy faculty across all eight colleges with broad access to new facilities for faculty and industry partners. This position resides at the Powerhouse Energy Campus, an energy focused campus north of CSU main campus. This is an industrial working environment. The Institute is dedicated to providing safe, secure, and sophisticated facilities for university investigators and industry partners to collaboratively research clean energy in all facets of society.

This position is integral to the daily operations of the Powerhouse Energy Campus. The person in this position is the welcoming face of the Powerhouse and is often the first point of contact for the public with the Energy Institute as they attend seminars or other activities hosted by the Institute. This position is viewed as the go to person for all event related activities from a simple meeting in the boardroom to hosting a multi-day workshop. The successful candidate will be interested in research occurring at the Powerhouse and be willing to share their knowledge with the public. This position will be a resource for the faculty and staff housed at the Powerhouse wishing to develop new events or more effectively host previously held events.

Additionally, this position will often work outside of the 8-5 schedule in order to meet the event needs of the department. The Powerhouse building is not located on the main CSU campus and thus the person in this position will be responsible for providing building access for events occurring before 8am and after 5pm.
