The Alaska Venture Fund (AVF), a project of the New Venture Fund, seeks a motivated individual to develop a portfolio of projects at the intersection of wildfire, climate change and community sustainability. Rapid climate change is increasing the frequency, severity and overall risk of large wildfires in Alaska with major and even potentially catastrophic consequences to Alaska communities, ecosystems and global climate. The Community Wildfire Resilience and Workforce Coordinator will assist the Wildfire Resilience Program to build greater wildfire resilience in Alaska by increasing focus, research, coordination and collaboration on the growing risk of severe and catastrophic wildfire and by catalyzing significant public and private funding for pre-fire and early fire preparedness and intervention.
The first round of applications will be reviewed on February 5, 2024. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
