Managing Protected Marine Species in Hawaii

Posted on: 02/07/2019

Summary / Description

Depending on the skill set and interest of the candidate, they may work on a 5-year review of a species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), a status review or proposed rule for a species being considered for listing under the ESA, or a recovery plan for a listed species. In addition to their main project, we would ensure that they are exposed to other issues in marine species science and management and, if desired, participate in limited field work.

Skills Required

This is more suited to a graduate student, although a mature, upperclass undergraduate may be acceptable. Duties will require strong writing skills, the ability to effectively coordinate with others within the office and outside (Federal agencies, State and local governments, potentially the public); and the ability to conduct scientific literature reviews and translate scientific findings into management actions/needs.
