The Kansas Biological Survey & Center for Ecological Research (KBS-CER) is seeking to hire an Education Program Coordinator who will help create and lead a vibrant new program of public education and outreach at the University of Kansas Field Station. The University of Kansas Field Station is administered by the Kansas Biological Survey and Center for Ecological Research and is a member of the international Organization of Biological Field Stations. The Field Station consists of over 3500 acres in northeastern Kansas and provides infrastructure for field-based research and education as well as a network of nature preserves used for research, public outreach and conservation. Field Station lands include a wide variety of terrestrial environments representative of the transition from eastern deciduous forest to tallgrass prairie in eastern Kansas. The field station also contains a variety of aquatic ecosystems (ponds, streams, and lake) that are accessible for research and education activities.

The Education Program Coordinator will develop and direct education activities at the field station that excite learners of all ages and backgrounds, educate diverse audiences about nature, and train volunteers to extend the reach of these activities. The position will increase the field station’s engagement within the University (in-reach) and in the broader public (outreach). The coordinator will present themselves as an outstanding representative of KBS-CER at local and regional events. This position will report to the director of the KU Field Station and work closely with field station staff.
