Job Opportunity


See below for a job opportunity with the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative: You’re the scientist who knows that research shouldn’t be trapped in books. You understand that decision makers in a complex world do best when they can leverage the latest science. You can talk p-values and natural resources polices in the same sentence. Does this describe you?

The Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is looking for a scientist who excels in taking scientific results to new places. We need a team member who can link scientific findings to resource, land, or community management decisions as Alaskan communities and landscapes face new challenges from climate change.

This new GS-9 three year term position is co-funded by the Alaska Climate Science Center and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service on behalf of the Western Alaska LCC. The person in this position will engage with principal investigators of projects sponsored by the LCC or the Alaska Climate Science Center to identify the key findings of their studies then produce a wide variety of materials to bring that information to decision makers and the interested public. This will involve developing an understanding of the decision maker needs along with the scientific projects and results. The work will be focused on coastal climate change throughout Alaska.
