*PLEASE NOTE: One frequently asked question about our positions involves the state’s “job-type” description for PASCAL jobs as “Temporary Grant” positions. This is required for positions that are not funded using state-appropriated funds. PASCAL positions are funded by the membership and the consortium considers this a permanent staff position.
