Science Outreach UAF

Fellowship Description

Science Outreach is seeking a STEM focused University Administrative Fellow. The UAF will assist in developing infrastructure for the new science outreach program that supports natural science academic units. The fellow will assist in developing programs and oversight for a Science Outreach undergraduate fellows program, evaluation and tracking, marketing materials, website, newsletter, and social media management for science outreach initiatives. The UAF will also help coordinate existing and future science outreach opportunities between academic departments and community partners and assist in managing a coordinated calendar of science outreach events and programs. 

The Science Outreach UAF will gain skills in program development and planning while learning the impact of community engagement with operational and logistical support regarding researching and identifying the needs of local schools and the community. Science outreach is specific in that it must meet the needs of both university science departments and community stakeholders. The work suits students with technical skills and an interest in community outreach, university program administration that includes collaboration with academic departments (faculty, staff, and students) and K-12 and community organizations.
