Subject: [Wetnet] TWO Water Resource Ecologist positions (USFWS Region 4) - jobs close June 24, 2016

(Please share with potential applicants - closes June 24)

The USFWS Southeast Regions Inventory and Monitoring Branch, including quantitative, terrestrial, coastal, and plant ecologists, a data manager and program lead, is now filling two vacant Water Resource Ecologist positions. The team provides support to plan, prioritize, design, implement, analyze, and interpret inventory and monitoring surveys for the breadth of resources managed by refuges in the USFWS Southeast Region and contributes to standardized monitoring efforts of the full National Wildlife Refuge System. The positions are listing within the federal natural resource management, ecology, fish biology, and hydrology series, as the new members of the inventory and monitoring regional team will particularly support surveys for freshwater aquatic species, habitats, and hydrologic systems.

The incumbents will work with national wildlife refuge staffs of the 144 refuges and refuge system conservation partners within the Southeast Region. The Southeast Region spans 10 states and ecosystems from the tropics of the Caribbean to the uplands of the Ozark Mountains, and from the coastal islands of North Carolina across the southern Appalachians and down to the wetlands of Louisiana. The incumbents will keep their feet wet at their home station, either Wappanoca NWR (Arkansas) or St. Marks NWR (Florida). The incumbent based at Wappanoca NWR will work most closely with refuges and partners in the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC geography, where the Mississippi River creates the lifeblood for refuges aquatic systems of big river, lakes, and managed wetlands and the priority aquatic species range from the alligator gar to the pink mucket mussel. The incumbent at St. Marks NWR will work most closely with the refuges and partners of the South Atlantic LCC geography where the freshwater aquatic systems and species are most closely tied to coastal, piedmont and coastal systems.

Those interested in the position can find the official job announcement and application instructions on USAJOBS (links below), explore the Inventory and Monitoring Branch website (http://www.fws.gov/s...work/index.html), and can contact Janet Ertel, I&M Branch Chief (678-772-6336) for more information.
