Compensation & Benefits: This position offers competitive compensation commensurate with experience, including health insurance, paid vacation, holidays, and a 403(b) plan.

About Us: Healthcare in many developing countries is a global crisis.  The severe lack of healthcare disrupts social and economic stability in almost every developing nation. Disease causes nine-out-of-ten preventable deaths in developing nations among children and adults.  Millions of children under the age of five die each year from preventable disease, and more than 70% of these deaths occur from pneumonia, diarrhea, measles, malaria and malnutrition. 

Founded in 1987, Project C.U.R.E. (www.projectcure.org) is the largest organization in the world delivering more than 180 forty-foot ocean freight cargo containers of donated medical supplies and equipment annually. Each project begins with an onsite Needs Assessment to ensure that Project C.U.R.E. delivers the right items to the right people. Project C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief in 130+ countries. In addition, Project C.U.R.E. conducts C.U.R.E. Clinics, Helping Babies Breathe trainings, and bio-technical trainings to hospitals and healthcare clinics in 40 developing nations. 

On average, the value of a Project C.U.R.E. Cargo container is worth $400,000 (wholesale), providing an amazing 20-to-1 "return on investment." Project C.U.R.E. operates Distribution Centers in Denver, Phoenix, Houston, Nashville, Philadelphia and Chicago where 20,000+ volunteers sort more than 26,000 types of non-perishable medical supplies and medical equipment for shipment abroad. Project C.U.R.E. also operates nine Collection Centers from Ithaca to Sarasota. Project C.U.R.E. receives both new and quality used medical items from hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States and medical manufacturers such as Stryker, Medline, Medtronic, Kimberly-Clark, Steris, and Hill-Rom. 

Project C.U.R.E. operates on 1.9% administrative overhead and has earned numerous awards for being the industry leader in international medical donations.

Background:  Recently named an "Arizona Top Company to Work For in 2018," Lowell Observatory (LO) is an independent, non-profit research institution founded in 1894 by Boston mathematician Percival Lowell. We are located atop a mesa overlooking downtown Flagstaff, Arizona, where we are steadily growing and carrying out our dual mission of astronomical research and communication of our discoveries to the public.  We strive to be a fun, collegial, dynamic place where we inspire incredible people to do remarkable work. The DDMC position is new to Lowell and deemed critical by leadership  to enable successful implementation of the current master plan and beyond.

Mission statement:

The mission of Lowell Observatory is to pursue the study of astronomy, especially the study of our solar system and its evolution; to conduct pure research in astronomical phenomena; and to maintain quality public education and outreach programs to bring the results of astronomical research to the general public.

Highlights of Master Plan Vision:

It started with the science facilities:

  Discovery at Lowell extend back more than a century and includes the first evidence of the expanding Universe, gathered here in 1912, as well as the discovery of Pluto in 1930.

The DCT is Lowell's flagship research asset, and it will maintain our competitiveness as a center of astronomical discovery for decades to come.

 Our donors make it happen:

   A multi-million dollar capital campaign has started the ball rolling on major construction plans.  Additionally, the Lowell Observatory Foundation (LOF), the endowment fundraising arm of the institution, concentrates on long term sustainability.  Our brand identity must incorporate the mission of the Observatory and appeal to a wide range of patrons and other stakeholders.
