Coastal Outreach Specialists (2 Positions), PA Sea Grant

Posted by Pennsylvania Sea Grant on February 23, 2021

Pennsylvania Sea Grant, a partnership of NOAA, Penn State University, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is dedicated to promoting the ecological and economic sustainability of Pennsylvania’s coastal resources through the development of science-based research, education, and extension programs.  Pennsylvania Sea Grant is part of a national network of 34 Sea Grant College Programs.

Pennsylvania Sea Grant (PASG) seeks two experienced outreach professionals to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate regional outreach programs with a focus on watershed restoration and community resiliency. Issues to be addressed may include climate adaptation, extreme weather impacts, and water quality improvements on the communities in southeastern and central Pennsylvania. These positions will work with a wide range of entities to promote education and develop new outreach programs to meet the information needs of local, state, and federal agencies, and interest groups. Groups served may include coastal and upstream communities, businesses, municipalities, public and private landowners, and educators. Specialists will work closely with universities, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations to develop programming relevant to Pennsylvania’s Delaware and Susquehanna River watersheds that may be replicated in other regional estuarine and riverine systems. There are two positions available, one will focus on Southeastern Pennsylvania (Delaware/Bucks counties), and the second will focus on Central Pennsylvania (Dauphin/Centre counties).
