Science Coordinator Position
Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative
Anchorage or Fairbanks, Alaska
The Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) seeks candidates for a science coordinator position in conservation biology. This permanent position is based in either Anchorage or Fairbanks, Alaska.
The Arctic LCC is a public-private partnership to promote coordination, dissemination, and development of applied science to inform conservation of natural and cultural resources in the face of climate change and other landscape-scale stressors. Its efforts are directed by a steering committee that provides guidance and oversight to the core staff. The committee is composed of the designated representatives of State, Federal, and Alaska Native entities participating in the Arctic LCC with an emphasis on field-level staff responsible for management and conservation of land and natural resources in the region. It is part of a national/international network of 22 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives.
The successful candidate will coordinate science in support of landscape conservation strategies and ecosystem-based management in the Arctic.
The ideal candidate will be able to eventually lead and collaborate on research in landscape, wildlife, and/or conservation ecology that supports implementation of ecosystem-based approaches to natural resource management. The Science Coordinator will engage in regional, national, and international efforts to coordinate Arctic ecosystem science and to help secure funding for high priority initiatives as well as represent the interest of partners in various national meetings associated with landscape conservation initiatives. As the Arctic LCC provides some funding for research, the job also involves reviewing science proposals and scientific publications.
Applications should include a cover letter, resume, and contact information for three references.
Application deadline: Thursday, 6 October 2016.
