Integrated Statistics is looking for an Ecologist to support the US Fish 
and Wildlife Service's Fairbanks Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office. 
The Ecologist will assist with Section 7 consultations, pursuant to the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973 as amended.  The Ecologist will be 
responsible for analyzing the impacts of a wide range of projects on 
listed species and critical habitat.

*This position is concerned with regulatory and analytical processes, 
not field research.*

*Duties*
The job duties include:

  * Conducting programmatic analysis, including synthesizing and
    preparing scientific literature, data, maps, and reports.
  * Researching, developing and writing technical documents including
    letters and Biological Opinions. These documents explain the
    analysis and conclusions of FWS regarding potential consequences of
    a given project on the ESA-listed species under our jurisdiction.
    The species include polar bears, and both spectacled and
    Alaska-breeding Steller’s eiders.
  * Developing minimization measures that reduce potential impacts to
    listed species and critical habitat, by working in concert with FWS
    staff across multiple programs, with other Federal agency staff, and
    with project proponents.
  * Assisting with other tasks that support the Endangered Species
    Program of the Field Office, such as developing  species status
    assessments and recovery plans.

*Qualifications*
The candidate should possess:

  * A Bachelor’s degree or higher in natural resource management,
    biological sciences, or a closely related field.
  * Directly relevant work experience in the field of environmental policy.
  * At least three years of experience in conducting Section 7 or
    similar regulatory consultations.
  * Demonstrated proficiency in writing technical reports and policy
    papers in a timely manner.
  * Demonstrated ability to apply excellent critical thinking and
    written communication skills.
  * Excellent written and oral communication skills.

The position is expected to last for one year. The position is eligible 
for the benefits described on the Integrated Statistics website. The 
position will start with a period of remote work to accommodate pandemic 
restrictions, but the Office is based in Fairbanks. A writing sample 
will be requested. To apply for this position, go to
