The Sunset Bay Wharf seeks applications for a Scholar in Residence SIR position for our marine science research and education program. We are seeking individuals interested in pursuing marine science research on Puget Sound based at our wharf and utilizing our rotating seasonal staff of 10-20 undergraduate marine science summer interns. In addition to research, the position includes developing our middle school marine science educational curriculum, and overseeing the teaching of these course materials by our undergrad interns to our marine science summer camp students. Teaching/curriculum development is valued equally with research and is expected to include summer courses in cetacean and pinniped food webs and behavior, underwater acoustic monitoring, and intertidal zone ecology.
To apply, please submit curriculum vitae, a cover letter including your research and teaching interests, and a list of pertinent experience in aquatic ecology. You may be prompted to submit online the names and email addresses of references. The position includes waterfront live-in accommodations and lab space on the Sunset Bay Wharf, located 18 miles from the Seattle city center. Research and instructional support for Sunset Bay Wharf environmental programs is also provided by Cascadia Research and Pacific Marine Mammal.
