We seek talented candidates who share our Core Values of Respect, Results, Innovation, Optimism, and Integrity, and support our Commitment to Diversity.
Healthy oceans are the lifeblood of our planet. But they’re in peril - from climate change, overfishing, habitat destruction and other threats. That’s why EDF’s Oceans program is working to safeguard the oceans and protect nature, while feeding the planet, creating more secure livelihoods and bolstering more equitable societies for human well-being. One of the greatest threats to the oceans is overfishing, which is why our dedicated team of scientists, economists and fishery management experts are collaborating with partners around the globe to make sustainable fishing the norm. Through our programs in the U.S., Latin America and Asia Pacific, we draw on strong science and economic principles to advance sustainable fishing practices, forward-looking policies and innovative tools that support the health of our oceans and the people who depend on them for food and their livelihoods.
The Oceans Program seeks a senior, experienced marine or coastal scientist to work closely with program leadership to inform and guide implementation of its new strategic plan. The successful candidate will lead and manage scientific work across the program, working collaboratively with other EDF program experts to identify, develop, advocate and implement science-based, economically sound, fair and equitable environmental solutions focused on attaining ocean climate resilience. Under the supervision of the Senior Vice President for Oceans, the Senior Director for Oceans Science will manage the EDF Oceans Science Team’s work on scientific priorities. Priorities include developing and demonstrating strategies and tools that enhance climate-resilient fisheries, pioneering integrated approaches that combine sustainable fisheries management with sustainable aquaculture and other coastal activities, advancing the performance of fisheries and related systems in food and nutritional provisioning for vulnerable populations, characterizing and advancing oceans based carbon capture and storage, and using science as a key strategy to accelerate adoption of regional and global strategies.
