CASC Network Job Openings: Two Research Positions Available

Thursday, November 14, 2019
Members of the NE CASC

The Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center is delighted to announce the availability of two research positions that will play a key role in advancing the CASC network's mission—the cultivation of information and tools that facilitate climate adaptation for natural and cultural resource management. The CASC network provides an engaging work environment that is highlighted by a vibrant, collegial, and collaborative community of students, faculty, and staff. Interested researchers are enthusiastically invited to apply after reviewing the position descriptions. Please note that the application deadline for both openings is November 27th.  

Position #1
Research Ecologist (Climate Impacts)
Apply here: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/549765900
Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center 
Duty Station: St. Paul, MN
The U.S. Geological Survey seeks an ecologist for a full-time, 4 year, time-limited position located within the Department of Interior’s Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center. The primary purpose of this position is to provide technical support and research on the impacts of climate on eastern US ecosystems and species of conservation interest including: 1) quantitative analysis on impacts of climate to future species distribution, occupancy, and health at relevant spatial and temporal scales, 2) analysis of uncertainty on the impacts of climate to species and habitat, 3) research on the impacts of climate on ecological outcomes including key focal terrestrial and aquatic systems, 4) research to develop and implement predictive ecosystem models that account for the influences of processes operating at multiple scales, and 5) communication of these to natural resource managers. 

Position #2
Geographer/Physical Scientist (Climate Impacts)
Apply here: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/549767600 
Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center
Duty Station: Raleigh, NC 
The U.S. Geological Survey seeks a physical scientist for a full-time, 4 year, time-limited position located within the Department of Interior’s Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center. The primary purpose of this position is to provide technical support and research on the impacts of climate on eastern US ecosystems and species of conservation interest including: 1) quantitative analysis on climate past and future scenarios at relevant spatial and temporal scales, 2) analysis of uncertainty on the impacts of climate to species and habitat, 3) research to develop and implement methods to quantify and propagate climate model projection uncertainty, 4) research to integrate climate projections into species, habitat, and ecosystem response models, and 5) communication of these to natural resource managers.
