Position Opening: Coastal Science Education Coordinator

The San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) is seeking a qualified and motivated individual to lead and coordinate the NERR’s Education Program.

The successful candidate will develop and lead educational programs that connect people to science and the estuary. The position requires leadership, creativity, networking, and collaboration to develop and sustain broadly distributed educational programs; create relevant and useful educational resources; assess program outcomes; coordinate and mentor volunteers and interns; establish and meet program goals; and write grant proposals to enhance support for the full scope of program goals and objectives. The Reserve’s sites are tied to culturally diverse communities and partner organizations and are located on ancestral land and waters of the Coast Miwok and Southern Patwin peoples. Culturally appropriate and relevant educational outreach and relationship building in these communities, and in collaboration with the SF Bay NERR’s partner organizations, is an expectation for the program and the position.
