Paleontological Research Institution/Museum of the Earth/Cayuga Nature Center
The Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) is seeking a staff member to lead its marketing and public relations programs. Title, salary, and reporting structure will be dependent on experience. This person will be responsible for helping ensure that the public — near and far — has a greater understanding, participation, and sustained interest in PRI, and its two public educational venues, the Museum of the Earth and Cayuga Nature Center. The successful candidate will have a Bachelor’s degree (advanced degree preferred) and three or more years of progressively responsible experience in marketing, communications, public relations, and/or a related field. Experience in a cultural or other non-profit institution a plus; experience with science and/or natural-history organizations especially welcome. We are seeking a high-energy, self-starting individual with strong creative, written, verbal, interpersonal, and organizational skills, as well as a willingness and ability to multi-task constantly, to think and work independently within a small, collaborative staff environment, and to conceive and implement activity at both strategic and tactical levels with limited resources.
