Florida Sea Grant is seeking a dynamic communications professional who wants to help us tell the story of our outstanding research and extension programs. And we’ve extended our search deadline to give us the time to find the right individual!
The communications coordinator is responsible for developing education, information and marketing products that support Florida Sea Grant’s goals and objectives. This position requires a person who is self-motivated and capable of working independently as a self-starter, with high-volume production under deadline and with minimal supervision.
The coordinator will develop content and products that engage audiences and increase their knowledge of coastal and marine issues. Significant audiences include decision makers, resource managers, media, coastal residents, the scientific community, Florida visitors, and graduate and undergraduate students. The coordinator is expected to contribute to the changing needs of Florida Sea Grant in support of its educational, communications and outreach needs, and is also expected to incorporate new media products and changing technologies as appropriate. The coordinator will also work with Sea Grant-related faculty and scientists, Sea Grant specialists and agents in UF/IFAS Extension, and institutional and agency partners when managing projects and/or events. As these partners are generally based in coastal communities, the coordinator is expected to travel to field locations a substantial portion of each month. Occasional weekend work is required.
Minimum qualifications are (1) a master’s degree in an appropriate area of specialization; or a bachelor’s degree in an appropriate area of specialization and two years of appropriate experience; and (2) a strong, demonstrated interest in marine sciences and/or natural resources conservation.
