Who We Are
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) is a pioneer of purpose-driven science and Cornell University’s second-largest college. We work across disciplines to tackle the challenges of our time through world-renowned research, education, and outreach. The questions we probe and the answers we seek focus on three overlapping concerns: natural and human systems; food, energy and environmental resources; and social, physical and economic well-being.
The New York Sea Grant Extension Program, established in 1971, implements educational problem-solving programs for coastal resource users, businesses and agencies. This program supports research and provides extension education to coastal resource agencies, users, businesses, and residents, and is patterned after the land-grand concept. Programs include coastal zone management, tourism and small business development, coastal environmental quality, and seafood processing.
What You Will Do
Assist extension staff in planning and execution of programming in all program areas such as Seafood Safety, Nutrition, Sustainability, Marketing, Fisheries and Aquaculture, Coastal Processes, and Ocean Literacy. Under the supervision of the lead extension specialist, assist with New York Sea Grant (NYSG) education programs and dissemination of topical curriculums developed by extension staff. Specific duties include:
Providing assistance with event coordination and outreach, including seminars, technical meetings, webinars, community events, and field trips.

Providing additional assistance and instruction to program participants during extension events and assist with organization and logistics necessary for successful delivery of programs and lessons. This will likely consist of regularly collecting qualitative and quantitative data to be used by the lead Extension Specialist to determine if knowledge and skills were learned during programs, and if learning is applied.
This is a part-time (19 hours/week) six-month appointment with possible extension depending on funding and performance. Hours may be increased to a maximum of 39 hours/week during summer months depending on available work and funding. This position will be located in Stony Brook, New York.
