Description
IMPORTANT:  This Advertiser has requested that applicants MUST be National Residents / Valid Work Permit-holders.  Other applicants need not apply.

 

The Center for Biological Diversity’s Alaska Representative will work on developing and implementing campaigns to promote the conservation of Alaska’s wildlife and wild places. Alaska is at the center of some of the most important environmental battles of our time, such as the fight over whether a rapidly melting Arctic will be sacrificed to offshore oil development or protected for the sake of polar bears and other warming-threatened species. The position will advocate for the protection of Alaska’s sensitive wildlife from habitat loss, climate change, poor management and other threats; fight old-growth logging in the Tongass National Forest; and work in coalition to save the Arctic from fossil fuel development.  

Main duties:

  • Advocate for comprehensive protections of endangered species and their habitats in Alaska.
  • Address threats to Alaska wildlife through administrative, legal and public advocacy, including writing persuasive comments, doing policy analysis, giving media interviews and performing public speaking.
  • Build relationships with and work in coalition with other conservation organizations and Alaska Native allies.

Desired qualifications and skills:

  • Degrees in law, science or other fields.
  • Scientific literacy and familiarity with environmental law and policy.
  • Familiarity with issues relating to Alaska — its history, politics, people and wildlife.
  • Ability to understand and powerfully communicate science, law and policy to the media, general public and policymakers.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.
  • Highly motivation and excellent time-management skills.
  • The ability to work independently as well as part of a team.

Salary is commensurate with experience. The Center offers an excellent benefits package, including employer-paid medical, dental, vision and disability insurance, as well as a 403(b) retirement savings plan with employer match.

The Center for Biological Diversity deeply values and is committed to sustaining and promoting, diversity both in the workplace and the world. We believe there is not only an intrinsic link between protecting the diversity of the Earth's cultures, languages, plants and animals, but between that work and having a staff diverse in gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and socioeconomic background. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Application process:
Please send a cover letter, a résumé, references and a writing sample via email to alaskarepresentative@biologicaldiversity.org, “Attn: Alaska Representative” The position will remain open until filled. No telephone calls, please. Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.
