You’re invited to a candidate seminar (job talk) for Minnesota Sea Grant’s new Business and Industry Liaison extension educator position. The seminar is an opportunity for anyone interested in Sea Grant and especially our work with business and industry in Minnesota to ask questions of a candidate for this new position.

The successful candidate will work with industry and natural resource professionals, local leaders and policymakers, the Great Lakes Sea Grant community, and Great Lakes researchers. The primary focus of this role is to apply university research results to help solve problems, improve efficiencies, increase cooperation among water-related business and industries, and improve environmental management.

Sea Grant extension educators develop new information through original applied research; gather existing information for user needs; transmit information and skills through pamphlets, courses, workshops, lectures and meetings; provide technical reviews of research and policies; and stimulate new research to meet perceived needs.

Minnesota Sea Grant’s mission is to facilitate interaction among the public and scientists to enhance communities, the environment and economies along Lake Superior and Minnesota's inland waters by identifying information needs, fostering research, and communicating results. We fulfill our mission through a workforce of extension educators who serve as trusted experts and honest brokers of information. Extension educators provide reliable technical and science-based information to residents to address local needs while also communicating residents’ research priorities back to their universities.

If you have questions about the candidate seminar, please contact Marte Kitson, search committee chairperson and Minnesota Sea Grant extension educator mkitson@d.umn.edu.

Parking is free in the University of Minnesota Duluth maroon lot on the east side of the Chester Park Building. UMD’s summer parking map is here: http://d.umn.edu/transportation-parking-services
