Current Jobs

The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is currently seeking to fill one Ecologist / Botanist position, classified as an Associate Vegetation Ecologist. The position includes at least 10 months of work, beginning in mid-June 2020, and the position may be extended dependent on funding.

Duties will include both coordinating field-based vegetation assessments, performing fieldwork, synthesizing and analyzing data for monitoring, classifying and mapping vegetation. This position requires a highly organized, detail-oriented individual to help coordinate field missions, analyze and integrate vegetation data in regional and statewide efforts, support vegetation classification and mapping efforts, outreach and communication. Other tasks will include plant identification, data quality control, vegetation type research and description, and other related tasks.

This position will coordinate and participate in vegetation inventory projects across California; including sampling efforts from NE California (e.g., Lassen and Modoc County) to the SE California (e.g., from Madera to Imperial counties); long-term monitoring in post-fire areas (Tulare and Kern counties); monitoring restoration areas in the Carrizo Plain (San Luis Obispo County), etc.

The project will center around US national forest policy and the implementation of the US Forest Service’s Shared Stewardship Strategy. This opportunity is ideal for a student looking to build expertise in public policy and administration, with a focus on US forest and fire management. US forest policy is an exciting and complex context for studying environmental governance change. Students will have opportunities to dig into literature on organizational change and learning, policy implementation, networked governance, and institutional innovation.
