Klamath Bird Observatory is seeking to fill a position with primary responsibilities to support ongoing work informing forest management and restoration to advance bird conservation in western ecosystems. The Restoration Ecologist and Partnerships Coordinator will engage with partnerships aimed at advancing oak and conifer forest restoration, as well as work toward new and diverse partnerships to promote forest resilience, fire management, forest economies, and human well-being. This work will contribute to a larger western program of Partners in Flight conservation delivery. Work will also include an emphasis on developing Tribal partnerships, including but not limited to, engagement in oak restoration. In addition, the ecologist will provide project support for long-term monitoring, applied ecology studies, and species-specific research. Core job duties include coordinating restoration partnerships (e.g. Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network) and contributing to forest collaboratives to provide expertise specific to bird conservation and the application of birds as focal species to inform planning and evaluate success. Grant writing and ongoing partnership building will be essential job duties. Depending on qualifications, the ecologist may contribute to study design, field survey training and oversight, data management and quality control, statistical analyses, report and manuscript writing, and community and scientific presentations.
Review of applications will begin July 26th and will continue until position is filled.
