Are you science minded with an interest in community organizing and event planning?

The location is flexible within our Northwest region.

Position Overview: 

The position will lead our pollinator and salmon campaigns, assist with policy reform efforts, research related policy and science issues, engage and organize communities to achieve program goals, communicate and write about our work in ways compelling to the public, and assist with raising program funding through grant writing. 

Primary Project Duties Include: 

- Managing NCAP’s campaign to protect bees and other pollinators from the harms of neonicotinoid pesticides through educational workshops with home gardeners and landscapers.

- Leading our Clean Water for Salmon campaign to protect salmon and steelhead populations from harmful pesticides including efforts to inform growers and other landowners about required buffers to protect fish and waterways and to assist with advancements in alternatives to pesticides used.

About NCAP: 

Founded in 1977, NCAP works to protect community and environmental health from the detrimental effects of pesticides through research, education and advocacy. NCAP understands that both pests and pesticides are a problem. We seek solutions coming from a change in approach – a difference in mindset – rather than a change in synthetic chemistry or a new product with a silver bullet and a warning label. We help people become more pest-aware and to learn to deal with pests in ways that avoid the use of pesticides that harm our health, wildlife, soil, water, and the air we breathe.

NCAP values equity, diversity and inclusion within our organization and with our partners to further our mission. We seek to understand and address historical and current patterns of oppression and racism within our organization and in how we do our work. We continually strive to build NCAP as an equitable, antiracist and multicultural organization where differences are seen as assets.
