Description

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) seeks a full-time Research Scientist to support the CIG's research and applications on climate impacts and adaptation in natural resources. Candidates who are passionate about our organizational mission and our co-production model are a must as research is co-produced with federal, tribal, state, and local partners. CIG is seeking a candidate with a natural resources background and project management experience who can support climate impacts and adaptation research projects led by the CIG’s senior scientists. Focus areas may include natural hazards and ecological disturbances, landscape conservation, species and ecosystems, water resources, and sea level rise and coastal impacts.

While educational attainment is valued, we also encourage applications from practitioners who have worked in government, non-profits, or other organizations who can bring practical experience with climate adaptation in the natural resource sector.

This position will: 1) work with the CIG’s senior scientists to conduct applied research on climate impacts and adaptation in natural resources; 2) engage with partners and decision makers on projects in all stages of the adaptation process from vulnerability assessment to planning and implementation; and 3) provide analytical, logistical, and project management support for research and applications.
