Career Opportunities at AGU

This is an exciting time to be working at the American Geophysical Union (AGU). We are an international scientific association whose core strength is our 62,000 scientist members from over 144 countries. Our members work on some of the most pressing issues facing humanity: climate change, renewable clean energy, and meeting the challenges of natural hazards.

Nearly a century after our inception, AGU continues to grow, and remains strong, stable and resolute. We are financially solid and many of our 115 staff have been with AGU for more than 10 years. We were recently recognized by The Washington Business Journal as one of the 20 most profitable associations.

AGU is also experiencing some significant and important changes: science is actively regaining the forefront in government funding and policymaking, bringing immediate and increased attention to the work of our members; our membership is growing with a noticeable shift in our overall demographics (including younger members and an increasing trend in international members); and, we are making changes of our own too, transitioning to new executive leadership.

Our headquarters are conveniently located just three blocks north of Washington’s Dupont Circle, on the Metro’s red line.
