The American Geophysical Union has an immediate need for a Public Affairs Specialist. Below are the job details.

Are you a public affairs professional with an interest in advancing Earth sciences to ensure our future? Do you enjoy engaging in public policy? The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is currently seeking a Public Affairs Coordinator that enjoys the fast-paced environment of Capitol Hill, managing priorities and rapid turnaround on projects. Why join us? AGU is working to be the best place on Earth to work. Our mission is to promote discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. We offer extensive benefits packages for full-time employees, including medical, dental and 403(b) retirement, generous paid time off, and so much more! We're looking for smart, forward-thinking problem solvers to join our class team of people and members who are passionate about what they do.

We're searching for your creativity to provide and help us reach our strategic goal of engaging members, shaping policy, and informing society about the excitement of Earth and space science and its role in developing solutions for the sustainability of the planet. In this role, you'll help implement AGU's congressional and legislative affairs program and increase effectiveness and recognition of our organization among decision makers as an authoritative source of integrated, interdisciplinary Earth and space information.

The ideal candidate must be able to write science policy communications for the AGU membership, establish relationships between our members and congressional offices by coordinating visits to Capitol Hill and organizing congressional briefings and other programs and events. You will attend congressional hearings, develop content for our website and social media outlets and coordinate AGU member grassroots communication efforts.
