It’s been a little quiet around this old blog-that tends to happen in the aftermath of the Iowa Water Conference. A challenge we’ve always faced is limited staff – you’ll notice there are only two faces on our About Us page.
That’s about to change. Today, our posting for a program assistant went live on iastatejobs.com. As public interest in Iowa’s water management has heated up, so has the role we’re able to play in shaping Iowa’s water future. The Iowa Watershed Approach grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and increasing expansion of the Daily Erosion Project have put us in a place where we not only need more staff, we have the support to do so.
So what will the program assistant do? Lots of important stuff. Does that sum it up? Okay, to be more specific, this person will:
- administer our competitive grants program
- help with planning education and outreach events (including the Iowa Water Conference)
- keep track of the approximately 10 million details involved in managing IWC sponsored projects
- spread the word about all the fantastic water research and activities going on
We’re looking for a know-it-all. A details person. A deadline embracer. A communicator.
The posting is currently open through June 5. If you or someone you know are interested in this position, please review the job posting and submit through the Iowa State system. Want to talk it through? Call or email. We’re ready.
