Project Manager, Coral Reefs Initiative

Version imprimable de cet article

The Project Manager, Coral Reef Initiative performs administrative, project management, budgeting, expedition planning, workshop planning, reporting, and operational functions for the interdepartmental Coral Reefs Initiative. This 10 year strategy is a coordinated, global effort of scientific discovery, conservation, restoration, and widespread education and engagement focused on coral reefs. The Project Manager will assist with two components of this initiative, including :

  • Exploring the Last Coral Reef Frontiers. The Academy will work with science and conservation colleagues across the world, and mount a series of expeditions over the next 5 years. Expeditions will focus on unexplored regions and habitats of the world’s coral reefs, including mesophotic reefs (in the "Twilight Zone"), and poorly known shallow reef communities.
  • Developing New Techniques for Coral Reproduction and Cultivation. Through global partnerships, the Academy will greatly accelerate the science and practical cultivation techniques needed for coral restoration. Working with colleagues around the world, the Academy is pioneering new techniques for large-scale reef restoration by collecting and fertilizing coral gametes, culturing the resulting larvae, growing the next generation of corals, and planting them back on to degraded reefs.

The Project Manager reports to both the Senior Director of the Steinhart Aquarium, and the Associate Curator of Ichthyology who are the Principal Investigators on the project. However, the Project Manager will interface with most departments at the Academy in the execution of the duties of the position.

This is a full-time, temporary position of 2 years with the possibility of extension pending grant renewal.
