The Lawrence Hall of Science is the University of California, Berkeley‘s public science center. This distinctive affiliation allows the Hall to engage world-class scientists, engineers, and educators in developing and disseminating the most innovative and effective STEM programs available today.

The Hall also engages thousands of educators, nationally and internationally, in high-quality professional learning programs, and increases access to science learning through digital tools for students and educators. This portfolio of programs is diverse and far-reaching, and makes an important contribution to the local and national need to inspire, prepare, and diversify generations of scientists and scientifically literate citizens.

The successful candidate will have an established scholarly record in science education, a background in one or more of the STEM disciplines, and a demonstrated ability to lead a large public-facing, research organization.
