    Working Conditions:

    This full-time, non-exempt position is a combination of in-school, field, and office duties. 

    In-school duties include conducting science education programs at schools in the Tahoe Basin, Truckee, and other nearby communities. Field duties include field trips for schools and summer camps, and also nature outings and citizen science programs for the public and assisting field research. While typical hours are 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, this position requires occasional evening or weekend work instead. This position requires physical abilities to lift heavy materials (35 pounds) and hike long distances with students.

    Currently, staff is dividing its time between home offices and our office space in the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation in Incline Village.  The position is based out of our office, but often working from home is more efficient. We follow all COVID-19 safety measures and adapt these measures when needed.  For example, many of the meetings and events still are being held via video-call (Zoom, Google Meets, etc.).

    TINS is a small team, and our approach allows us to be nimble and take ownership of new projects. There are periods when we are working with many concurrent deadlines – this can be both exciting and stressful.

    Compensation: Salaried position, $44-48K to start, DOE. We do not presently offer insurance benefits, but we do have a Sect. 125 policy that allows for pre-tax insurance premium and flex health deductions. We also offer a SIMPLE IRA plan matching employee contributions up to 3%.

    Expected Start Date: As soon as possible.

    To Apply: Please send cover letter, curriculum vitae, three references, and an example of your writing to Will Richardson via email:

    Closing Date: Until filled. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
