The organization looking for a science communication/media officer is the Charles Darwin Foundation (from the Who we are page),
The Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands (CDF) is an international not-for-profit organization that provides scientific research and technical information and assistance to ensure the proper preservation of the Galapagos Islands.
CDF carries out its activities in Galapagos under a conservation research and guidance agreement with the Ecuadorian government. The Foundation is part of a network of local and national organizations supporting Galapagos Island protection. For fifty years, CDF has worked closely with the Galapagos National Park Service (GNPS), the main government authority overseeing the safeguarding of the islands’ natural resources, providing the results of scientific research to conserve this living laboratory.
Over one hundred scientists, educators, research assistants, support staff, and volunteers from all over the world take part in this effort. The organizational staff is 90% Ecuadorian and CDF is committed to the training of Galapagos residents as future scientists and conservationists for the good of the islands and the country at large.
The Charles Darwin Foundation is registered in Belgium as an International Non-Profit Association (AISBL, abbreviated in French) under the number 371359 and is subject to Belgian law.
Oddly the job is not listed on the Charles Darwin Foundation website but you can find it on the European Union of Science Journalists’ Association (EUSJA) website. From the job posting on the EUSJA website, submitted by Fabio Turone on June 25, 2012,
Potentially a wonderful opportunity, for someone who has some Spanish. The Charles Darwin Foundation in the Galapagos Islands is looking to hire a Science Communicator. Fulltime position, based in Santa Cruz/Galapagos Islands Start date 1st of August 2012. Fluency in Spanish and English required. Existing experience in Galapagos highly advantageous. Salary and other benefits will be negotiated individually.
We are also open to hear from applicants who are seeking a part-time position in the area of communication. The position is aimed at communicating the successful science and conservation work that is being carried out in the archipelago, and where the Foundation is one of the organisations that is contributing to these efforts. It is also aimed at ensuring that the Foundation adheres to the various communication protocols that it has with its partners and stakeholders. Following a restructuring that was begun in July 2011 and that will be finished during the coming months, our communication department had temporarily gone to having zero staff members. Rebuilding the team from scratch represents an opportunity to take the communication abilities of the Foundation to a new level in a range of media. We recently already kickstarted our work with the local and national press in Ecuador.
The rest of the posting is on the EUSJA website or you can get the terms of reference from [email protected] or you can send your application (CV and covering letter) to [email protected] and [email protected]
