The OCF is hiring!

March 20, 2017

Update April 8, 2017: The application period is over and we are no longer accepting applicants. Thank you so much to everyone who applied!

The OCF is making a big transition to having a completely self-staffed front desk next semester, and as part of that process, we are looking to hire students to be OCF Operations staff for the 2017-2018 academic year! This includes two paid positions, Operations Assistant and Operations Manager, neither of which require any technical experience. These are very important roles, and without dedicated and passionate students to fill them, the OCF will not be able to stay open next semester.

Operations Assistants

Operations Assistants will have the following responsibilities:

  • Staffing the front desk
    • Maintaining lab security
    • Providing help to OCF members using the lab
    • Carrying out regular lab maintenance
  • Working on projects that benefit the OCF
    • Marketing and outreach
    • Collecting feedback on OCF services
    • Organizing events taking place in the lab
    • Researching and applying for additional sources of funding for the OCF
  • Attending regular meetings with the Operations Manager and the other Operations Assistants
This job position will be paid $13.75 per hour. See the full job description for more details.

Operations Manager

The Operations Manager will have the same responsibilities as the Operations Assistants (see above), except they will spend less time staffing the front desk of the OCF, and instead will spend the remaining time performing more managerial duties, such as leading meetings with the Operations Assistants, delegating projects, and scheduling shifts for the OCF front desk. This job will involve more responsibilities and use of communication skills than the Operations Assistant role, but it is also paid more, at $15.75 per hour. See the full job description for more details.


Applications closed on Tuesday, April 7th at 11:59 PM. If you are interested in applying for a future position, you can contact us for more information.
