Kuskokwim Fisheries Partner Biologist

Job Opening: Orutsararmiut Native Council (ONC) is currently accepting applications for a Kuskokwim Fisheries Partner Biologist.

Job Summary: This is not a typical fisheries biologist position. It combines standard research and monitoring with capacity building in pursuit of ensuring sustainability for Alaska Natives’ subsistence way of life. This involves incorporating fisheries management and research with educational efforts in partnership with Tribal, State and Federal management entities; supervising field technicians or college interns; and working with people, schools and communities regarding fisheries programs. It is a unique opportunity to use creative biology, education and communication skills to build on the existing ONC Fisheries Program that has received strong recognition and support over several years. This is a full time multi-year position funded on an annual basis through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Office of Subsistence Management.

Qualifications: Candidates must have the ability to work with people of all ages from small communities in a remote rural environment; clearly show dedication to ensuring sustainability of subsistence fisheries and an understanding of, or demonstrated ability to work with, local Alaska Native cultures. Candidates must have a solid understanding of fisheries and ecological principles; a B.S. or B.A. degree from an accredited college with a major in fisheries or a related field in contemporary anthropology. Additional studies or familiarity with human dimensions and resource management issues in rural Alaska is preferred. Experience working with Tribal organizations is highly desired along with knowledge of Alaska’s subsistence management concerns; grant writing, budget management, and program development skills. Preferred candidates should also have three years of relevant professional work experience (M.S. Degree substitutes for 2 years’ experience); possess good field/outdoor skills; excellent verbal and written communication skills; and be willing to travel to Kuskokwim area villages and regional or statewide meetings. While this position involves working with many diverse groups and agencies, it also requires a great degree of vision, initiative and ability to work independently without direct daily or detailed supervision in order to achieve established program goals.

Salary: $50-65,000 DOE with full-time benefits.

Closing Date: Friday, September 25th or until filled.

To Apply: Send a cover letter and resume/CV to [email protected], fax to (907)543-2639, or mail to arrive by closing date to: P.O. Box 927, Bethel, AK 99559
