The Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) is an aquatic community science center at Dickinson College. Since its founding in 1986, ALLARM has become a nationally recognized technical and programmatic support center for community organizations interested in watershed assessment, protection, and restoration.  Through the work of four full time professional staff, 10-16 Dickinson College part-time students, and a part time science advisor, ALLARM has carried out its mission to empower Pennsylvania and New York communities with scientific tools to assess stream health and help communities use those data to implement stream restoration and protection measures.

An important role that ALLARM plays for communities is ensuring that community science techniques are accessible for volunteers and rooted in strong science. The ALLARM staff scientist will work with the ALLARM team to maintain the organization’s scientific integrity and credibility through research and resource development. They will also develop and implement community and college resources, in collaboration with the team and supervising student staff.
