Description

Ducks Unlimited is seeking a wetlands ecologist, hydrologist or natural

resource economist to synthesize existing science to quantify and communicate

ecosystem services outcomes of its conservation programs.  The successful

applicant will focus initially on three higher order objectives: (1) development

and/or synthesis of science-based information to assess effects of DU&rsquo;s

conservation work on water quantity and quality; (2) synthesis of the science-based

information into a form that can be easily communicated and conveyed to

DU staff engaged in development of partnerships with industry and foundations,

and to policy staff and others engaged in advocacy to secure favorable wetlands

public policy outcomes; (3) active participation in the scientific community

by publishing peer-reviewed manuscripts and participating in professional

meetings and discussions, and engaging and cooperating with DU&rsquo;s science

staff across Ducks Unlimited, Inc., Ducks Unlimited Canada, and Ducks Unlimited

de Mexico.

 

Education, Experience, and Reporting:

The successful candidate will have a M.S. or Ph.D. in Wetland Ecology, Hydrology,

Natural Resource Economics, or a related field, a minimum of 5 years of

related experience, and the ability to develop and/or synthesize science,

and communicate science-based information to fundraising, marketing and

public policy staff.  Additionally, the successful candidate will develop

relationships with scientists in academia, industry and government to foster

development of innovative conservation solutions that lead to significant

advances in landscape scale wetland conservation. A detailed understanding

of wetland and wildlife conservation programs, conservation related policy

and legislation, and the ability to locate, review and synthesize technical

information related to ecosystem services with emphasis on wetlands and

associated uplands is essential.  We seek a highly motivated, self-starter

with a willingness to work with a team of dedicated conservation professionals

to develop innovative conservation approaches to challenging landscape-scale

conservation issues.  This position will report to the Chief Scientist at

DU&rsquo;s National Headquarters in Memphis, TN., and will cooperate with

DU scientists located across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
