Ocean Protection Council/Natural Resources Agency

Environmental Scientist (2 positions)

The California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) is hiring two limited-term Environmental Scientists (30×30 Staff Scientists) to help advance California’s goal to conserve 30% of coastal waters by 2030 (the “30×30” initiative) and broader strategic priorities related to enhancing coastal and marine biodiversity. The Environmental Scientists will be responsible for supporting tribal consultations and stakeholder convenings; identifying science-based strategies to strengthen biodiversity conservation in California’s coastal waters (including research gaps that warrant near-term investment); and coordinating with state and federal partner agencies. The Environmental Scientists will also be responsible for grant and contract management, including developing scopes of work and budgets, tracking deliverables, and coordinating with grantees. The Environmental Scientists will provide additional support and capacity for implementation of broader OPC and California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) priorities related to biodiversity conservation, such as habitat protection and restoration.
