  • Indigenous Partnerships Manager

    In recent years, GMRI has committed itself to increasing the diversity of its staff and focusing on equity in its partnerships and programs. While working to create partnerships within Wabanaki communities, we have come to appreciate the need to commit more holistically to these partnerships and to reflect that commitment across the organization and in our shared culture. We envision a future where Indigenous knowledge is a valued and integral part of how we approach both scientific work and work with communities. We are in the process of manifesting these commitments in both internal education and training processes and in our program work. As a component of that commitment, we are hiring an Indigenous Partnerships Program Manager to support our institutional transformation and to build strong partnerships with Indigenous communities. The immediate program opportunity for this position is to embrace two-eyed seeing, the weaving together of Indigenous knowledge systems and western science, through GMRI’s community science program, Ecosystem Investigation Network. The Indigenous Partnerships Program Manager will facilitate collaboration among Indigenous communities, Tribal organizations such as Wabanaki Youth in Science (WaYS), and staff from across GMRI. The community science work will expand GMRI’s Ecosystem Investigation Network engagement of communities in observing the natural world, interacting with researchers around critical ecosystem dynamics, and bringing that knowledge and experience to inform management, restoration, and conservation measures. We are strengthening our community science efforts as a promising pathway for authentic engagement with communities around Indigenous priorities and for broadening the kinds of knowledge systems included in GMRI’s research endeavors.
