In collaboration with a variety of government, tribal, business, academic and NGO partners, the San Francisco Bay and Outer Coast Sentinel Site Cooperative seeks to build sea-level rise resilience and protect critical ecosystem and community services.
To help achieve this vision, the five cooperative partners (California Sea Grant, San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Bay Conservation and Development Commission, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA] Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, and NOAA Office for Coastal Management) seek a coordinator that will connect San Francisco Bay decision makers to critical NOAA and NOAA partner resources to improve their capacity to understand and address sea-level rise. The coordinator also will work with the California Sea Grant Extension Program to share the successes and lessons of the Cooperative beyond the Bay area, expand the reach of the Cooperative, and bring innovative and novel approaches and capabilities from other California coastal communities to the Bay area.
The position will be based in Tiburon, California, at the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve office at San Francisco State University’s Estuary and Ocean Science Center. This is an 18-month grant-funded position at the post-doctoral level, from approximately September 2018-February 2020, with the possibility of renewal for one or more years, pending receipt of additional federal or other support.
Required qualifications include a PhD in either marine or a related environmental science, background and interest in sea-level rise science, and background and interest in developing strategies for sea-level rise adaptation. Experience with meeting facilitation, writing proposals, and demonstrable success in securing extramural grants is preferred.
Deadline to apply is July 13, 2018.
