The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) administers NOAA’s program to manage living marine resources for commercial and recreational use. The program provides services and products to support fisheries management operations; international fisheries affairs; fishery development, trade, and industry assistance activities; protected resources and habitat conservation operations; and the scientific and technical aspects of NOAA’s marine fisheries resource programs.
An opportunity is available to join the NOAA Restoration Center, a division of the Office of Habitat Conservation (OHC) within NMFS. The Restoration Center restores and promotes responsible stewardship of the nation’s coastal, marine, and migratory fish habitat. The Restoration Center focuses on four priority habitat restoration approaches, where we can have the biggest impact to fishery production, including opening rivers, reconnecting coastal wetlands, restoring shallow corals, and rebuilding shellfish population.
As a Supervisory Marine Habitat Resource Specialist, you will perform the following duties:
- Direct staff and resources for coastal habitat restoration programs and policies, providing mission goals, projects, and technical assistance to subordinates.
- Provide oversight to a team that protects and restores habitat to sustain fisheries, recover protected species, and maintain resilient coastal ecosystems and communities.
- Foster partnerships and collaboration to promote mission objectives and strengthen the impact of marine habitat restoration program actions in compliance with legislative mandates.
- Perform supervisory functions to employees and assist employees in career planning, develop work performance standards, and periodically evaluate employee performance.
