The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is recruiting for an experienced wildlife professional to lead the Division of Wildlife Conservation's (DWC) Marine Mammals Program. The job bulletin for the position may be found on the Workplace Alaska webpage: https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/alaska/jobs/1738829/wildlife-scientist-i-pcn-11-2102

The DWC Marine Mammals Program consists of 24 professional staff and works proactively with state, federal, Alaska Native Organizations, and also with NGOs and private partners to conserve Alaska's marine mammal species. In particular, the program conducts scientific research to prevent species from becoming threatened or endangered, promotes the recovery of species already listed, and supports Alaska Native subsistence use.

The incumbent coordinates the State of Alaska's work under the Marine Mammal Protection Act; provides information, expertise, and leadership on marine mammal Endangered Species Act issues; works with program staff to secure grants and funding sources that support research on marine mammals; and oversees competitively awarded grants (e.g., through NOAA, NPRB, BOEM). A primary responsibility includes securing and administering grants and budgets, which are often complex and may require matching funds. The incumbent will directly supervise 5 professional staff located in Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks.

The Marine Mammals Program is instrumental in implementing Alaska's State Wildlife Action Plan: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=species.wapabout. A key goal of this position is to direct science and conservation approaches for species that have a high public profile, conservation need, and high subsistence value within the State of Alaska. The incumbent must work effectively with other agencies, traditional DWC region-based wildlife management programs, NGO's, and universities to promote the Marine Mammals Program.
