Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a historic glasshouse and public garden in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been inviting visitors to discover and enjoy the natural world since 1893. In recent years, Phipps has transformed into one of the worlds greenest public gardens, serving as a model of sustainability for the next century and expanding its campus to include the first LEED certified visitors center in a public garden; the first LEED certified greenhouse (LEED Platinum EBOM); a revolutionary, energy efficient Tropical Forest Conservatory; and the Center for Sustainable Landscapes, a net-zero energy and water building that is the first in the world to meet four of the highest green building standards: the Living Building Challenge, LEED Platinum, Four Stars Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES), and Platinum WELL Building certifications. Through a dynamic slate of science education programs and outreach initiatives targeted to all ages and demographics, Phipps inspires and engages people to recognize the beauty, wonder and irreplaceable value of the natural world. In all its services to the public, Phipps upholds a mission to inspire and educate all with the beauty and importance of plants; to advance sustainability and promote human and environmental well-being through action and research; and to celebrate its historic glasshouse.

Phipps seeks a Director of Research and Science Education to advance and oversee all research, science education and science communication programs at Phipps. The Director of Research and Science Education will lead in the development of the Phipps Research Institute for Biophilia and Science Engagement.
