Please post the following. Thank you!

The NMFS Alaska Region, Protected Resources Division, currently has two job
opportunities available.  The division is responsible for management of a
variety of protected species including whales, fur seals, ice seals, harbor
seals, and Steller sea lions.  Both positions will be located in Juneau.

Marine Mammal Specialist, ZP 401 band III (GS 11/12 equivalent)
Resource Management Specialist, ZP 401 band III (GS 11/12 equivalent)

The people hired for these two positions both will work in a team
environment to conduct analyses and implement conservation actions to
promote the management and recovery of protected species under the ESA and
MMPA.  The duties for the two jobs will be similar, including tasks such as
such as ESA section 7 consultations, status reviews, responses to petitions
for listing, and co-management with Alaska Native organizations under the
MMPA.  The Marine Mammal Specialist's duties will include working with
stakeholders to avoid or minimize harassment of marine mammals due to
vessel disturbance and other human activities.  The Resource Management
Specialist's duties will include conducting analyses regarding the impacts
of commercial fisheries on marine mammals.  For both jobs we're looking for
people with excellent project management, analytical, writing, and verbal
communication skills, and hopefully having experience with the MMPA and
ESA.  Both of these positions are being advertised for status and
non-status applicants.

These announcements will be open from August 25 through September 1.  Here
