The Marine Science Center is currently accepting applications for the following positions:

Beach Sisters Fellow (1-year term)

The Marine Science Center (MSC) Outreach Program reached almost 10,000 people in 2016 through various programs and events, and has traditionally focused on serving teachers and students in eastern Massachusetts. The MSC and Girls Inc. of Lynn developed the Beach Sisters program in 2011 in order to create a ladder of opportunity for the exploration of marine and environmental science. The Beach Sisters program paves the way for school-aged girls living in an environmental justice community to develop scientific inquiry and citizenship skills, and to learn about studies and careers in marine science.

With support from the AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellowship program, the Fellow will be responsible for coordinating and implementing the Beach Sisters program. The Fellow will mentor six teen peer leaders and facilitate their leading of programs for their peers and younger girls, create opportunities for leadership development and environment-focused community service, and participating in program assessment efforts.

Genomics Educator Intern (short-term)

The Educator Intern will work with Dr. Katie Lotterhos, whose research focuses on the genetic basis of adaptation and has particular interest in understanding how marine organisms are adapting to climate change and other human impacts on natural systems. The Intern will learn from research scientists about their work, and will plan and implement ways to teach basic genomic content to high school students – both to students taking part in a one-day program at the MSC, as well as back in their own classroom. The position, well suited for an experienced high school science educator, is anticipated to last 40 hours in two phases over summer of 2017 and winter of 2018.
