Seeding Action Civic Science Fellow
Association of Science and Technology Centers
18-month, full time, 40 hours/week, exempt
Salary Range: $90,000 annual base salary plus ASTC’s standard benefits package, including 403(b) matching up to 10% of salary, 85% employer-paid health insurance, paid vacation and health leave
To support Seeding Action’s institutional capacity-building efforts, ASTC is seeking someone with experience leading collaborative planetary health action projects to serve as the Seeding Action Civic Science Fellow, a full-time 18-month position. For Seeding Action, “planetary health” includes the interlinked challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, and air, soil, and water pollution, and the many implications of these issues for human lives and society, such as environmental justice, conservation, agriculture, extreme weather preparedness and adaptation, and low-carbon workforce development. Seeding Action supports science centers, museums, and other public engagement organizations in their efforts to engage with their local communities and visitors on these issues in a wide range of ways, such as through exhibits, community and citizen science collaborations, public dialogues, teacher professional development, digital interactives, and other educational programs. The Fellow’s work will ultimately help build capacity at diverse organizations to implement these types of public engagement efforts in ways that increase planetary health impact.
