Shape our approach to Alaska Climate Adaptation Science: Become our Assistant Regional Administrator

UPDATE March 7th: The AK CASC Assistant Regional Administrator position announcement has closed.

We’re excited to announce the hire of an Assistant Regional Administrator here at the Alaska CASC. The position, formerly known as the Deputy Director, will serve at the USGS G-14 level and assist in leading strategic operations alongside AK CASC Regional Administrator Steve Gray. The new position will ensure clear communication, support critical partnerships across agencies and with non-government partners, and identify science priorities for the CASC.

We’re filling this leadership role in a federal agency as our regional network experiences increasing demands for actionable climate science at all levels of management. The Alaska CASC has the greatest land area and the lowest population of any CASC and serves 228 federally recognized Tribes as well as a variety of local, state, and federal partners. All of these planners and land users need the best science available to make plans in our changing climate.

“Prospective candidates should be experienced and ready to work hard to serve Alaskans as well as the federal agencies that operate across the state” said Gray, who has served as the USGS Director of the Alaska CASC for 12 years. “It’s a unique position working in government so closely with our University of Alaska system colleagues and our BIA Tribal Resilience program partners. This is a great opportunity to expand capacity and leadership on the USGS side of the house.”
