The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is seeking a full-time Stranding Response Coordinator for its nationally recognized Stranding Response Program.

Program staff and volunteers respond to approximately 100 marine mammal stranding events and 200-250 sea turtle stranding events each year in Virginia. Most of the responses involve dead strandings and necropsy investigations, but the Aquarium's Marine Animal Care Center is an active rehabilitation center for sea turtles and can rehabilitate pinnipeds. On occasion, we have also provided triage for small cetaceans.

The Stranding Response Coordinator will supervise four full time and one or more hourly staff as well as volunteers, fellows and interns and will be responsible for managing budgets for grants and contracts associated with the Program. Funding for the program is primarily through donations, grants and contracts and the Stranding Response Coordinator will be expected to apply for grants, seek contractual agreements and participate in fundraising efforts. The Stranding Response Coordinator is supervised by the director of Research & Conservation and works closely with the Research Coordinator.

Interested parties please apply through the City of Virginia Beach's WAVE application portal (if the link below does not take you directly to the job announcement, please copy and paste it into your browser and search postings for Senior Curator-Stranding Response Coordinator). The formal job title is Senior Curator-Stranding Response Coordinator. If applying, please make sure that you include all pertinent information on the application and not rely on attachments such as CVs and resumes. A link is provided below. This is a City of Virginia Beach position and benefits are provided. If you have questions about the position, please contact Sue Barco at [email protected]. The position closes on Oct 5th.

I say you contact Sue Barco at [email protected], listed above, and give it a go. If the outcome isn't what you'd hoped for ask about other, similar positions in the area for paying jobs or volunteer positions that can lead to better openings for you.
