Adjunct/Part-Time

Job Duties:
Community liaisons are sought to represent their community in efforts to identify and organize local education and outreach activities in their region (one position is available in each of Greenville, Princeville, Nag's Head, and Hyde County). The liaisons will aid ECU faculty, staff, and students in connecting with local residents, organizations, schools, and leaders to highlight community concerns related to the environment and integrate these issues into educational and outreach programing developed by ECU. Community Liaisons should therefore be well established in their respective communities. Key responsibilities involve establishing connections, understanding local priorities, and coordinating activities (including tailored youth programming) to address community needs while fostering collaboration between scientists and residents. The ideal facilitator is deeply committed to their community, culturally aware, embraces people from all backgrounds, practices active listening, and recognizes the transformative potential of science in addressing local challenges.

Review of applications will begin March 1st with applications accepted until the positions are filled. The expected term of this position will be until December 2024, subject to adequate performance, and may be eligible for renewal of additional terms. Work will largely be able to be completed remotely but the liaisons will need to come to ECU periodically. Liaisons will be required to have their own transportation and reliable internet access. All facilitators will be required to attend in person Community Science training sessions at ECU in May 2024.
