From Jan Freiwald, PhD, Director Reef Check California  

We are searching for a Southern California Regional Manager for the Reef Check’s California program.  After working with Reef Check for 9 years, growing the program and building up the volunteer community in southern California, our long-term Regional Manager, Colleen Wisniewski, is leaving Reef Check. We are looking for someone to join our team and to continue her great work and make their own contributions.

The ideal candidate will have detailed knowledge of the coastal rocky reef ecosystem in California, good taxonomic skills, and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with recreational divers and academic researchers.  We are looking for someone with experience as a dive leader – certification as Instructor and experience in the Reef Check monitoring protocol will be an advantage.  We require someone who is an outstanding leader and able to inspire volunteers and at the same time has the required background in marine ecology.  The candidate must be organized, capable of working independently and have excellent oral and written communication skills.
