The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) is seeking candidates for Program Director of the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program (NBEP). NBEP is one of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 28 national estuary programs established pursuant to Section 320 of the federal Clean Water Act. S/he will work to protect and preserve Narragansett Bay and its bi-state watershed through partnerships that conserve and restore natural resources, promote the use of sound science to support Narragansett Bay management, enhance water quality, and promote community involvement and stewardship.
The Program Director of the NBEP oversees and manages operations at NBEP’s Providence office, including short and long-term planning. S/he will provide overall program leadership, coordination, administration, and planning in cooperation with the EPA Project Officer, NBEP Steering Committee, NBEP Executive Committee, NBEP Science Advisory Committee, associated NBEP subcommittees, and NEIWPCC’s Lowell staff. The NBEP Program Director will be the lead for developing and implementing initiatives and partnerships that support the on-going renewal and implementation of the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP)—the dynamic guiding document for the NBEP—including serving as a facilitator for addressing key environmental issues and for leading initiatives related to water quality/stormwater mitigation, habitat protection and restoration, local capacity building, and the widely interwoven impact of climate change.
The Program Director will promote a holistic approach to the protection of the Narragansett Bay watershed, recognizing its environmental, economic, and social/cultural significance and bringing together various constituencies to work together effectively towards a shared vision and mission; ensure NBEP’s program structure and activities reflect the bi-state nature of the watershed and help all portions of the watershed to employ partners that seek cooperative solutions through political and environmental leaders who recognize the natural world as overlaid by society’s defining borders.
The successful candidate is expected to have a master’s degree in environmental science or policy, public administration, or in a field related to natural resources. Knowledge of and experience in aquatic or marine science or policy, or coastal zone management, as well as non-point source pollution, marine monitoring, habitat assessment, and stormwater management preferred. The right candidate will have a proven track record of leading institutional growth and a team, managing technical projects, and facilitating discussions with a broad range of stakeholders.
