Working Lands for Wildlife, Conservation Effects Assessment Project, UMT and UNL jointly hiring two research scientists
 
We seek two research scientists/postdoctoral scholars at the University of Montana and University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in collaboration with USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and their Conservation Effects Assessment Project.

This multi-institutional partnership offers unique advantages for highly motivated individuals:

  • Immediate impact with a team of applied scientists who for a decade have helped inform millions of acres of on-the-ground conservation through the NRCS-led Working Lands for Wildlife.
  • Leverage technological innovations that address the most pressing needs of rangeland conservation across unprecedented spatio-temporal scales
  • Membership in the new Center for Resilience in Working Agricultural Landscapes at UNL and the Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP) science team at UMT
