UNESCO Internship for (post)graduate students to review evidence on “Sexual Harassment in (Earth) Science”: at UNESCO HQ in Paris, France

Katrien Heirman

UNESCO Internship to review evidence on “Sexual Harassment in (Earth) Science”

Job Purpose:

Assess and conduct research on the extent of sexual harassment in (Earth) science, especially considering statistics and facts. Considering the huge amount of media attention, it is necessary to assess how accurate and significant recent attention, including in the scientific press, to this issue is. UNESCO is very concerned about this issue, but would like to create a science/evidence based assessment on this topic.

This project is within the framework of the UNESCO Earth Sciences and Geohazards Risk Reduction Section and the UNESCO STEM and Gender Advancement (SAGA) project.

All this work will happen in very close collaboration between different units within UNESCO.

Expected Outcomes:

• A science/evidence based assessment on the extent of sexual harassment in Earth science.

• A final report/document on the results of this study

• Distribution of the report through the UNESCO website, other UNESCO channels and different UNESCO partners

• Support the development of policy and strategies against sexual harassment which can be used by science associations, science unions, universities with Earth science programmes and employers

• Creation of a portfolio of best practices for the future

Requirements:

• UNESCO internships are unpaid. 

• Must be currently enrolled in a postgraduate degree or equivalent in geography, geology, geophysics, glaciology, soil science or other related field.

• Open to either sex.

• Must be able to legally reside in Paris for the duration of the internship.

• Excellent research and drafting skills required, plus an interest in the subject.

Period:

Two to four months, starting date: late spring/early summer 2016

Working Section:

The Natural Sciences Sector, UNESCO, Paris, France

CV and Motivation Letter:

Please send (as soon as possible) your CV and motivation letter to Ms L. Anathea Brooks ([hidden email]) with Mr Patrick Mc Keever ([hidden email]), Ms Margarete Patzak ([hidden email]) and Ms Katrien Heirman ([hidden email]) in copy.

Roger Braithwaite
Dear CRYOLISTERS

This is almost certainly a spoof e-mail. If sexual harassment is really a problem at UNESCO, it defies common sense that it would be tackled in this casual way.

We are talking about possible violations of company rules or even crimes. The guilty people may suffer criminal punishment, dismissal or forced resignation. The investigators would need to be highly trained (and highly paid!) to get the desired information without violating the rights of the accused or the suspected (or exposing themselves to danger!).

Seen as a pure research project, the project proposal would have to pass stringent risk (health and safety) and ethical assessments.

Unpaid interns are better (and more safely) employed interpreting satellite pictures, compiling literature lists, analyzing geophysical data etc.

I suggest that nobody applies for these positions until the apparent sponsors give further details. Verifiable postal addresses and phone numbers would a minimum.

Katrien Heirman
Dear all and Mr Braithwaite,

This is NOT a spoof!

This is not a study of sexual harassment at UNESCO, this is a study by UNESCO on the issue of sexual harassment in (Earth) science. The person who will be doing the internship will be part of a team of experts on the issue of gender equality and gender advancement in STEM.
http://www.unesco.org/new/en/natural-sciences/priority-areas/gender-and-science/improving-measurement-of-gender-equality-in-stem/stem-and-gender-advancement-saga/

UNESCO is an international organization, therefore this organisation cannot punish or force perpetrators to resign, this is the responsibility of each Member State. Providing the delegations of the 191 UNESCO Member States with a solid research report (the intern will be crucial help in researching and drafting this) on this issue using facts and numbers will make them aware that this is indeed a serious issue and not something that is blown out of proportion by the press. Once they are aware of the issue, direct policy changes can be made.

UNESCO is currently already collaborating with IUGS, EuroGeoSurveys and the European Federation of Geologists on this issue. Many other professional organisations have shown interest as well.

So please, DO apply for this internship, UNESCO is not tackling this in a casual way, the organisation is taking this serious. Doing this internship will give you the unique opportunity of gaining experience in an international organisation with experts on all fields imaginable from all parts of the world.

Chris Marsh
In reply to this post by Roger Braithwaite
Hello all,

I'm one of the co-operators of Cryolist. 

Roger, I have let through Katrien Heirman's reply to your email. 

Let's keep any further correspondence w.r.t this off-cyrolist to keep the signal to noise down for everyone else.

Going forward, if you think we've made a mistake in letting a certain email through to the list, please don't hesitate to email either Todd or myself. 

We endeavour to not allow spam through. We sincerely appreciate you raising your concern about this, or any posting to the list.

It sounds like this is likely legitimate research, however there may be concerns with other aspects of it. Like all calls to apply, the onus is on the reader to apply due caution! 


Cheers
Chris
