Austin Urban Monarch Technicians for Summer 2016, USFWS, (posted 5/26/16)

Hourly Wage – Range $14-20

Location – Austin Ecological Services Field Office

The Midwest Landscape Conservation Cooperatives and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership with the Chicago Field Museum and Monarch Gateway, are developing a landscape conservation design for the monarch butterfly in Austin, TX.  The project, called “A Monarch’s View of the City”, integrates ecological and social information from across the urban landscape to help identify and guide where the best places are to create or enhance monarch habitat, and what the best ways are to engage different stakeholder groups who might be interested in putting habitat on the ground.

Responses to this posting will be used to identify two to three full-time paid summer positions to help contribute data and information to this exciting project.  The project will be funded by the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative through a cooperative agreement administered by the Gulf Coast Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (GC-CESU).  The duration is for approximately 16 weeks (June 13 to September 30), with the potential to extend into October and November.

The first two positions are for Ecological Technicians.  These positions will implement intensive monitoring of monarch butterfly habitat and monarch butterflies at each life stage within various selected sites throughout the Austin metropolitan area.  Selected individuals will be trained by staff from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Monarch Gateway in ecological sampling methodology and monarch biological monitoring protocol in order to collect information at urban sites on a variety of habitat characteristics, including but not limited to: milkweed density and abundance, floristic diversity and distribution, presence or absence of red imported fire ants, and total habitat acreage.  The two Ecological Technicians will perform field work as a team when monitoring plots in the Austin metropolitan area.

Duties may include, but are not limited to:

  • Collects and organizes biological field data using standardized collection procedures and equipment; assembles basic information on habitat (forests, wetlands, and grasslands), plants, and wildlife populations. Ensures quality control of data collected. Performs field, and data analysis of collected samples and records data. Makes preliminary assessments or determinations on the cause of noted problems.
  • Collects data from surveys and employs appropriate data analyses, mathematics, and statistics to interpret results.
  • Carries out routine field studies on plants and plant ecology, and/or wildlife and wildlife ecology; inventorying and monitoring of invasive plants.
  • Work with private landowners, other federal and state agencies, and non-governmental partners to carry out low complexity, non-controversial monitoring projects.
  • Will be required to work outside (walk long distances, carrying approximately 10 pounds of gear) for the duration of the summer in the Texas heat with exposure to mosquitos, chiggers, etc.
  • May be required to operate passenger vehicles, and utilize global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), cameras, and a variety of computer programs.

Qualifications and experience:

  • Austin Region plant identification skills are strongly desired
  • Experience with ecological sampling and/or invertebrate sampling
  • Understanding of monarch biology
  • Valid driver’s license and access to a car

The third position is a Social Science Technician.  This person will assist with the qualitative component of the project, including administering semi-structured interviews with partners from various Federal and State agencies, non-governmental organizations, academia, private landowners, and others.  This individual will be responsible for compiling social survey responses.  We prefer candidates who could administer these interviews as part of their collateral duties as an Ecological Technician, but we will consider individual applicants as well.

Qualifications and experience:

  • Degree (or degree-seeking) in Social Science, Biology, Natural Resource, or a related field
  • Basic knowledge of Central Texas ecology
  • Detail-oriented and well organized
  • Excellent interpersonal skills (including flexibility and ability to balance putting people at ease and maintaining the structure of the interview)
  • Valid driver’s license and access to a car

We strongly desire candidates who could fulfill both the ecological and social science aspects of the project.  If you meet the qualifications for both positions and have an interest in a hybrid position, please note this in your cover letter with your application. 

Please submit your application by email attachment to Katie_latta@fws.gov by June 3, 2016, for consideration.

Quantitative Ecologist, USGS Post-Doctoral Research Opportunity.  This is a Pre-Notification.  Please see the link to access the formal announcement.  (Posted 5/10/16)

USGS Post-doc (more details): 

USGS is recruiting a post-doctoral scientist in quantitative ecology for a USGS Monarch Conservation Science Partnership project focused on developing a continental-scale sample design for monarch butterflies and the resources that sustain them. The appointment is anticipated for 2.5 years. Anticipated salary will be at the GS-11 level (ca. US$51,811 per year, plus benefits; official salary level to be listed in official job announcement). The post-doc will work with project lead Wayne Thogmartin (USGS Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center [UMESC]), and will collaborate with other scientists in the partnership as well, including Jay Diffendorfer and Darius Semmens (both of USGS Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center), Ralph Grundel (USGS Great Lakes Science Center), and Laura Lopez-Hoffman (University of Arizona). The position is located in La Crosse, WI, at UMESC.

The successful candidate will support the project by taking lead and collaborative roles in:
1) Developing and mapping a spatially balanced and stratified master sample for the regions of the U.S. using a Generalized Random Tessellation Stratified sampling framework. Development of this sample could involve incorporation of cluster sample considerations to minimize travel among locations. Coordination of the sample design for the monarch butterfly with the North American Bat Monitoring Program will likely be essential.
2) Conducting power analyses for attributes collected according to the proposed sample design. Such analyses might examine tradeoffs between spatial intensity versus temporal intensity (e.g., sampling alternate years at a larger number of locations versus a smaller set of continuously sampled locations); consequences of cluster arrangements; and identification of the extent to which portions of the landscape are sufficiently sampled under presumed levels of spatial and temporal variability and proposed sample sizes.
3) Summarizing data from pilot monitoring activities to inform development and implementation of the proposed sample design.
4) Evaluating the potential for existing monarch butterfly monitoring programs, such as Monarch Larvae Monitoring Program and Journey North, to satisfy sampling of portions of the landscape and identify attributes needed to draw statistically robust inferences, once those data sources are embedded within the master sample.

Applicants should possess strong skills in sample design, the R programming language, and experience publishing in peer-reviewed journals. Experience modeling wildlife populations, understanding of Bayesian statistics, and experience working on large, collaborative research projects is also desirable.  Prior experience with monarch butterflies is preferred, but not a necessary condition for this position.

This announcement is a pre-notification. We anticipate that the official job announcement will be posted to www.usajobs.gov in early summer – you can register at that site to receive a notification of when this position is posted.  As an expression of interest and to be notified when this job is listed on USAjobs.gov, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references via email, subject line “Monarch Sample Design Post-doc”, to Wayne Thogmartin at wthogmartin@usgs.gov.

Graduate Student Position in Fire Research (posted March 7, 2014)

Description:  The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is hiring a graduate assistant for 2.5 years to conduct fire modeling research associated with dynamic, temporal changes in grassland fuels and fire behavior in response to precipitation variability, grazing, time-since-fire, and woody encroachment. These models will be used to improve our understanding of the factors contributing to the dynamic nature of grassland fuels and will facilitate efforts to improve characterizations of wildfire danger in grassland ecosystems (e.g. OK-FIRE; http://okfire .mesonet.org). Fire models will be based on an extensive field dataset that quantifies changes in grassland fuel characteristics over time in response to fire, grazing, and drought.

The successful candidate will be part of a collaborative research team conducting unique fire experiments throughout the Great Plains.  Collaboration opportunities with other students are encouraged.  Please explore Dirac Twidwell’s research site for an overview of existing projects (http://agronomy.unl.edu/twidwell).

Qualifications:  The student will be part of an interdisciplinary team that includes ecologists, meteorologists, and soil physicists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Oklahoma State University. The successful candidate will therefore be highly motivated, passionate about scientific inquiry across disciplines, possess excellent writing and communication skills, and have a strong desire to pursue publication of research in refereed scientific journals. Familiarity with fire behavior models, fuels sampling, fuels models and quantitative statistical or mathematical techniques is also desired.  Students with a B.S. degree will be considered across various fields of study, but preference will be given to candidates with a strong interdisciplinary background in ecology or biology, math, and physics, and show a strong commitment to develop an ecological background throughout their graduate studies.

Applicants interested in this position should send a letter of interest, GRE scores, and a resume or CV that includes contact information of three references (email is preferred).

Start date is flexible, depending on the qualifications of the candidate; the expectation is to begin between May – August 2014.
