Research Assistant - Nature in the City

We are seeking a seasonal research technician to assist the City of Fort Collins, Wildlife Conservation Society, and Colorado State University with the Nature in the City (NIC) Biodiversity Project. The successful candidate will monitor birds and butterflies at >160 sites throughout Fort Collins. The data collected will be used to identify high quality habitat and important corridors for wildlife. This analysis informs management decisions for the City to better understand how land use, development, and conservation affect biodiversity, especially human-sensitive species.

For more information, including how to apply, please refer to the position description.

Currently, there are no other openings for graduate students, post-docs, or research associates in our laboratory group. When an opportunity becomes available, we will post the information here and to relevant listservs (e.g., Ecological Society of America) and job boards (e.g., Society for Conservation Biology).

In addition, if our applied conservation research interests align, I am often willing to work with prospective graduate students or postdoctoral fellows on applications for fellowship or grant funding. If you are interested in applying for funding in collaboration with our lab group, please send the following in a single pdf document to sreed@wcs.org: (1) a letter of interest that describes the funding opportunity, your qualifications, and a summary of your research idea; (2) a current CV; and (3) contact information for three professional references.
