Job Announcement for EarthScope Education and Outreach Manager

EarthScope (www.earthscope.org) invites applications for the position of EarthScope Education and Outreach Manager at the EarthScope Headquarters Office in Washington, DC. The successful candidate will be responsible for coordinating the development of a high-profile education program for EarthScope that emphasizes the integrated nature of the project and the importance of EarthScope's research initiatives. 

EarthScope is the National Science Foundation's largest undertaking in solid Earth Sciences. It provides a unique opportunity for integrating scientific research and education while advancing the Earth Sciences with a diverse national audience. EarthScope has the potential to enable a broad range of students and the public to participate in a national experiment, and for the first time to observe and measure geological processes within the time frame of an academic school year. As EarthScope observatories are installed at over 3,000 geographical locations across the nation, students and the public will be introduced to scientific questions and to the role their region plays in understanding the formation of the North American continent. To do so, EarthScope will develop and coordinate educational activities, provide science and data products that are accessible to students, and create teaching modules that will allow EarthScope resources to be incorporated into an inquiry-based learning experience consistent with national educational standards. 

Qualifications: The ideal candidate is an outstanding individual with a Ph.D. in Earth Science or equivalent experience, broad interests, a demonstrated record in education, and a reputation and interest commensurate with that of university academic responsibility, or equivalent rank from government or industry. Applicant must have demonstrated leadership and community-building skills, demonstrated communication and organizational skills, the ability to develop funding for educational and outreach activities, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

To apply, please mail your curriculum vitae, a statement of experience and interest, and contact information for three references to:

Ms. Patricia Sheatsley

1200 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 700
Washington, DC 20005
