We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.   The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts: For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with close to 250 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity and the destruction of the marine environment.   Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia. Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for future generations. Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and economics to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity. In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat. Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.   Project Overview: At least one fifth of all fish taken from the sea are caught illegally or beyond the reach of regulators. This significantly threatens the health of the global ocean ecosystem and undermines the economies of countless fishing communities around the world. Fishing grounds in developing countries and on the high seas are especially vulnerable to exploitation by companies that engage in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. International crime in fisheries flourishes because flag states do not fulfill their legal obligations to control the fishing operations of their vessels, and port states do not have the tools or incentives to identify and prosecute these crimes in port. There is no silver bullet capable of addressing IUU fishing. Many tools must be marshaled to close down the avenues for illegally caught and unregulated fish. The campaign is working to implement a global system of enforcement to combat illegal fishing through the adoption and effective implementation of policy and market measures that enable the identification and tracking of industrial-scale fishing vessels, the development of practical tools to improve information-sharing among enforcement authorities, and the building of the necessary human and technical resources to sanction such vessels if they have engaged in illicit activities. Position Overview: The Officer, Technology and Analytics will report to the Project Director, Conservation Enforcement and Technology and work in close coordination with the Senior Officer, Enforcement and Technology to deliver on the breadth of enforcement and technology goals of the Ending Illegal Fishing Project (EIFP). It will include, through remote access and use of the Oversea Ocean Monitor (OOM) system and other relational databases and geographic information systems (GIS), active monitoring and generating historical analysis of designated maritime areas of interest and managing and analyzing data associated with fishing fleet dynamics that will serve to inform the EIFP with its efforts to detect, deter and eliminate IUU fishing. The Officer will also be responsible for developing and implementing Standard Operating Procedures that will govern the processes and protocols for Pew staff access to OOM and its associated outputs. The Officer will assist with the technology and enforcement aspects of Pew’s advocacy for the development and implementation of a global system of enforcement (GSE) which may also involve engagement in the market and policy aspects of the project. The work includes serving as lead and providing oversight of Pew’s engagement with INTERPOL’s Project Scale, developing new regional enforcement models and improving regional partnerships that incorporate the use of technology and enforcement mechanisms. The Officer will also assist with enhancing campaign goals by researching advancements in technologies used for fisheries monitoring and data analytics, and supporting OceanMind in their use of OOM as a primary component in the business model to obtain new users of OceanMind products, including current and future government and retail users of OOM. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.

Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.   Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas: Although the high seas make up a majority of the world’s oceans, no institutional or formal legal framework currently exists to designate fully protected marine reserves beyond a country’s exclusive economic zone except in the Southern Ocean. These waters, covering an area larger than all of the world’s continents combined, exemplify the tragedy of the global commons—exploited by all, but protected by none. The value of fully protected marine reserves has been increasingly recognized by individual countries which have established reserves in their own exclusive economic zones as a means to protect and conserve marine biodiversity and ensure the health of marine ecosystems. The United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly is anticipated to establish an intergovernmental conference in 2018 to negotiate final text of a treaty to protect marine biodiversity in the high seas by the end of 2020. This project will utilize Pew’s experience as a leader in the creation of science-based marine reserves and protected areas and international ocean policy to mount a global campaign that generates worldwide support for the negotiation of this agreement.   Position Overview: The Officer, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas will assist in building momentum for development of a new international legal instrument enabling the establishment of marine protected areas and reserves on the high seas. Efforts will focus on making the case for higher levels of ocean protection through the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Pew will work closely with other organizations to galvanize international support for an increase in the global commitment for marine protections. This position is based in Washington, DC and will work closely with the International Conservation Unit and Government Relations teams and will report to the Senior Manager, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas.   The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.

We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.   The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with close to 250 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity and the destruction of the marine environment. Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia. Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for future generations. Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and economy to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity. In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat. Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.   Outback to Oceans Outback Australia and its adjacent remote seas is one of the few great natural areas remaining on Earth. Pew has worked in the Outback since 2007 seeking better protection and management for remote landscapes and seascapes. We work in the four Outback states and nationally co-lead a range of projects and campaigns to obtain durable outcomes for conservation. Fundamental to our work is engaging with local people from different sectors to obtain lasting outcomes that work for people, country and wildlife. Further details of our work in Australia can be found at: http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/projects/outback-to-oceans-australia Position Overview The Administrative Assistant position will provide administrative and office support to the Outback to Oceans Project in Australia.

Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the public interests.   With offices in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Australia, Brussels and London, and with additional staff in other regions of the United States and around the globe, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.   The Research and Science Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts The Research and Science portfolio includes both programmatic, functional and outreach elements.  It spans all of Pew’s programmatic work with a focus on advancing quality research and science and deploying research expertise to further the goals of ongoing projects. The portfolio reviews the design of new research projects across the institution to ensure they are high quality, unbiased, and methodologically sound.  The programmatic elements of the portfolio include specific projects related to biomedical science, environmental science, the Philadelphia research public policy research and fiscal federalism. In addition, Research and Science has a role in communicating timely, accurate information on state issues to the general public as the Pew daily news publication, Stateline, is part of our organization. The portfolio also includes an operational aspect working to ensure effective management systems across the program department and coordinating with key partners across the institution.  Project Descriptions The Philadelphia Research Initiative (PRI) provides timely, impartial research and analysis that helps Philadelphia’s citizens and leaders understand and address key issues facing the city. PRI’s annual State of the City report is a unique compilation of facts and figures that illuminate relevant trends in one of America’s oldest yet constantly evolving cities.  Research Review and Support (RRS) facilitates the research process across all Pew programs and projects. Staff help ensure the integrity and quality of all research outputs, including reports, surveys and polls, literature reviews, and data collection and analysis. This work involves taking a research concept from initial hypothesis and proposal through post-analysis data checks, fact checking, and peer review. RRS advises project teams on the best methodological or analytical approaches, datasets and, if appropriate, external vendors to achieve desired outcomes. RRS staff also provides direct research assistance, most commonly data collection and literature reviews, as required.   Based in Washington, D.C., Stateline is a project of The Pew Charitable Trusts. Launched in 1998, it is a web-based source of analysis and intelligence from state capitals on a variety of issues. It produces approximately 25 originally reported articles on key state policy issues every month, while also offering email alerts with original content and links to other sources identifying emerging issues and trends in the 50 states and DC. Stateline also produces special reports, such as its annual State of the States series, and intensive, ongoing coverage of major events—e.g., how states are responding to ongoing fiscal pressures. Stateline’s readership includes thousands of state officials, policy makers, business leaders, journalists, students of state government and ordinary citizens. The content appears at www.pewstates.org/stateline, and is distributed via news outlets including USA Today, Huffington Post, McClatchy-Tribune Information Services, and Kaiser Health News, among others.   Position Overview The administrative assistant will be based in Washington, DC, and will support staff in both Washington, DC, and Philadelphia. This position will be assigned to support three specific projects (Stateline, the Philadelphia Research Initiative, and Research Review & Support).  The assignments may change as needed, as projects constantly evolve. Responsibilities include supporting staff by scheduling and preparing meetings, managing expense reimbursements, coordinating travel, maintaining databases, tracking key media outlets for publication of Pew content, and assisting with a daily newsletter.   The administrative assistant may participate in regular project meetings and is encouraged to develop a general understanding Pew’s work in the assigned project areas. The successful candidate will need to be experienced in such a role and be able to demonstrate a high degree of independence and initiative in delivering organizational elements of the role.
