Assistant Professor - Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program (MAP) – Bristol Bay region

This Tenure Track faculty position provides marine extension services to residents of 33 rural communities in the Bristol Bay region of southwestern Alaska. The position is part of a statewide system of Marine Advisory Program (MAP) faculty who provide information and technical assistance to the public relating to: commercial fisheries development, coastal economic development (such as fish processing, tourism or marine business management), community-based science and environmental monitoring, resource management, marine conservation, and marine resource education.

Bristol Bay's population of approximately 9,000 is culturally and linguistically diverse. The regional economy is based on a mix of cash-producing commercial fishing and jobs and subsistence activities. Increasingly, Bristol Bay residents participate in careers and public involvement in natural resource management, environmental monitoring and scientific research. The Bristol Bay Native Association and the Bristol Bay Economic Development Corporation are among several regional entities that would be key community partners for the MAP member.

The Bristol Bay MAP position is headquartered in Dillingham, the economic and population hub of the region. The MAP office is located at the UAF Bristol Bay Campus and the MAP position works closely with other University educators.

This is a tenure track position ( 9 months salary guaranteed) with the possibility of an additional 3 months of grant‑funding.
