California Sea Grant (CSG) (https://caseagrant.ucsd.edu) is a unique partnership that unites the resources of the federal government, the State of California and universities to provide integrated research, extension, outreach, and education aimed at helping Californians balance diverse coastal and marine interests and adapt to changing conditions and needs. CSG is administered by the University of California, San Diego, but the position is based at an off-campus salmon and steelhead research station in Windsor, CA (Sonoma County).
The Monitoring Program Manager will oversee the daily operations and activities of California Sea Grant's Russian River Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring Program (RRSSMP). For over 15 years, the RRSSMP has conducted monitoring and research on tributaries to the Russian River in support of salmon and steelhead recovery efforts. Current field projects include redd and snorkel surveys, operation of PIT-tag detection systems, electrofishing, downstream migrant trapping, wet/dry mapping, and operation of water quality loggers. Resulting data is summarized and used to inform a coho salmon conservation hatchery program, support implementation of the California Coastal Monitoring Program, identify bottlenecks to salmonid recovery, and prioritize and evaluate habitat and streamflow enhancement projects.
The Monitoring Program Manager will provide high-level coordination of multiple fish monitoring and research projects conducted by approximately 10 CSG staff, two AmeriCorps members, and other partners including interns, fellows, students, partnering agency staff, and volunteers. Responsibilities include organizing and facilitating meetings, supervising staff, mentoring AmeriCorps members and interns, scheduling, facilitating training and professional development opportunities, ensuring program compliance with safety standards, and providing constructive feedback to improve program performance. The person in this position will also assume responsibility for managing the off-campus office/warehouse facility, conducting purchases and/or leases of vehicles and other equipment, developing/maintaining inventories, and troubleshooting issues if they arise.
The Monitoring Program Manager will assist the Monitoring Program Director with contract management, budget and operational planning, hiring of staff, and preparation of grant proposals. The incumbent will prepare data summaries and facilitate contract reporting, including setting schedules and deadlines, preparing report content, reviewing and providing feedback on content that others have contributed, conducting final editorial reviews, and ensuring that reports are submitted on time. The incumbent will also maintain and renew federal, state, and university research permits and complete permit-related reporting requirements.
The Monitoring Program Manager will publicly represent the RRSSMP and assist with the program's goal of disseminating results to stakeholders working to recover salmon and steelhead populations in coastal California. To this end, the incumbent will communicate with a diversity of program partners, including resource agencies, non-profit organizations, academia, administrators, and private landowners. Specific responsibilities include requesting access from streamside landowners, responding to data requests, preparing and delivering presentations
