Experience your America and build a fulfilling career by joining the National Park Service. Become a part of our mission to unite our past, our cultures and our special places, to establish important connections to the present and build a rich and lasting legacy for future generations.
The Pacific West Region of the National Park Service is recruiting for the Superintendent position at Kalaupapa National Historical Park (NHP). Kalaupapa NHP, established as a park unit in 1980, is located midway along the north coast of the island of Molokai, in the State of Hawaii. The park is situated entirely within Kalawao County, which is governed by the Director of the State Department of Health. The County includes the historic Hansen’s disease isolation settlements of Kalawao and Kalaupapa. The park was established to commemorate and preserve the story of those afflicted with this dreaded disease and their forced exile from family and friends. Hansen’s disease patients were physically isolated from society. Saint Father Damien devoted himself to improving patient lives at Kalawao both physically and spiritually, giving them protection, comfort and hope. Saint Mother Marianne and Brother Dutton continued the work of Saint Damien. Kalawao contains the church and original grave of Saint Damien.
The access to Kalaupapa is very restrictive, not only for tourists, but also for your friends and family. By State Law, friends and family may only visit the park 13 days each quarter of the year and they must wear a visitor ID tag throughout each visit.
The cost to travel by plane from Kalaupapa to Honolulu is approximately $160 round trip for residents and $320 round trip for non-residents, including your family members. The other transportation alternative to flying is to hike 3.5 miles up a very steep trail from the park to topside Molokai. Once you reach the top of the trail, you still need to find a car ride to get to the airport and/or the only large town on Molokai, which are both about 10 miles from the trail head.
There are no medical facilities available at the park. There is a health clinic staffed by one doctor open one day per week for 4 hours that is limited to patient evaluation and referrals and writing prescriptions. No medical equipment is available for procedures or testing.
This announcement is open to Department of Interior applicants eligible for consideration under merit promotion procedures (current DOI Federal employees with career/career conditional status; former DOI Federal employees with reinstatement eligibility, or persons eligible for non-competitive appointment under Special Authorities.
