The Southern Region of Ducks Unlimited, Inc. (DU) is seeking an experienced biologist for Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.  The biologist will work under the direction of the Manager of Conservation Programs (MCP) for Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico and become part of a team of biologists, engineers and other professionals. The focus of this position will be to assist the MCP in many facets of the ongoing, planned and future enhancement and restoration of wetlands and associated habitats important to migrating waterfowl and other wetland dependent species within this broad landscape of three states on an as needed basis.

Qualifications:  Candidates must have a minimum of a Bachelor of Science degree in a natural resources field—an advanced degree is desirable. Applicants must also have at least five years of relevant experience and have a working knowledge of wetland ecology, waterfowl, shorebird, and waterbird biology; and state and federal wetland conservation programs, policies, and laws. Demonstrated experience with various state and federal regulatory requirements (e.g., Section 404 permitting, National Environmental Policy Act, National Historic Preservation Act, and Clean Water Act) as they relate to wetland restoration and enhancement is beneficial. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required. Proven proposal/grant writing skills, experience in presentations to large groups, project management capabilities and wetland restoration and enhancement experience are desired. Familiarity with the regions’ biological resources, local and regional environmental issues, and private and public stakeholders is beneficial.

Duties and Responsibilities:  The ideal candidate will be a self-starter adept at assisting with initiating, managing, and delivering wetland enhancement, restoration, acquisition, and protection projects with a focus on DU priority landscapes. Job duties will also include representing DU at wetland conservation venues; assisting with a variety of outreach activities, including working with major donors; and other conservation activities. Project duties include identifying potential projects, developing/maintaining relationships with public agencies that may partner with DU to enhance and restore wetlands, and identifying and securing funding from a wide variety of sources for project work.  Project management and delivery duties include coordinating with agency partners and other stakeholder groups, DU engineering staff, consultants, and regulatory agencies to ensure timely and on-budget delivery of projects. The regional biologist will provide biological technical assistance to various partners, agencies, foundations and other entities as needed. Incumbent will also establish and maintain relationships with key DU volunteers and development staff and provide DU management with timely communication on project work and issues in the three-state area and assist communications staff with articles to promote and describe the work.

This position will report to Texas Field Office in Richmond, Texas and be supervised by Manager of Conservation Programs – Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.  Richmond is immediately SW of Houston.
