NRDC is offering a new two-year fellowship in marine mammal science, to
begin in September. See below for details, and please feel free to
contact me with questions.
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a national nonprofit
conservation organization, has an opening beginning September for a
two-year, full-time, marine mammal biologist in our Santa Monica,
California office. The Fellow will work with NRDC's Marine Mammal
Project as part of a team focusing on the impacts of environmental
stressors, such as warming oceans and undersea noise, on populations of
marine mammals. He/she will also collaborate with other science fellows
in a newly established NRDC Science Center.
This position is modeled after the AAAS Environmental Fellowship program
and is designed as an opportunity to make practical contributions to the
more effective use of scientific and technical information in
environmental policy decision-making.
Specific tasks will include developing policy recommendations for the
integration of environmental factors into marine mammal stock
assessments; assisting NRDC in preparing technical comments on the
cumulative impacts of human activities on the marine environment;
preparing publications for lay and scientific audiences on the
assessment of environmental stress in marine mammal populations; and
engaging the regulatory and scientific communities on these issues.
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent doctoral-level degree in marine
mammal science, population biology, or related field, with experience in
modeling or statistics; an excellent scientific or technical background;
and a strong interest in applying scientific knowledge to environmental
problems. The successful applicant will also have excellent writing
skills and enjoy working on an interdisciplinary team with people from
different professional backgrounds. He/she should thrive under a
fast-paced environment, with well-honed abilities to manage and
prioritize a heavy workload.
The salary for this position is commensurate with experience. We offer
competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and a pleasant working
environment. NRDC is an equal opportunity employer, and we particularly
encourage women and people of color to apply. Interested applicants
should forward a letter of interest, which addresses the following:
