The Southwest Climate Science Center (SW CSC) is seeking a Program
and Communication Manager who can bring creativity, curiosity, and
excellent project management skills to our collaborative work environment.
The SW CSC housed in the University of Arizona's Institute of the
Environment and is one of eight CSCs, funded by the Department of the
Interior, whose mission is to provide scientific information, tools, and
techniques to natural and cultural resources managers in order to help them
anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change. We help connect climate
science to decision making using innovative approaches to engagement, bring
together diverse teams of researchers and stakeholders, and bridge the
boundaries too often seen between research and application of science. The
SW CSC is a consortium of six universities in the Southwest partnered with
the U.S. Geological Survey.
The successful candidate will report to the university SW CSC director,
and also work closely with the federal SW CSC director and deputy director,
as well as university principal investigators and other SW CSC
colleagues; he/she will also work cooperatively with SW CSC federal and
other partners. The successful candidate will develop effective and
innovative outreach strategies, coordinate communication between the
research team and regional climate stakeholders, coordinate communication
between and among the research team, and be responsible for coordinating
event planning for university, state, and federal entities.
The communications and program manager will possess a unique blend
of skills and talents, including: sufficient scientific understanding
to quickly grasp key insights from climate research; well-honed oral
and written communication skills to efficiently translate science
for non-expert audiences and also to help communicate stakeholder needs
and concerns to scientists; the confidence and organizational skills to
help coordinate a dynamic research team; and a well-developed set of
project management skills.
*Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision
insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation,
sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and
qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to
UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!*
