Local recruitment: Chesapeake Bay Program's Habitat Goal Team Staffer

Chesapeake Research Consortium

Annapolis, MD, USA 🇺🇸

The Environmental Management Staffer in this position will support the CBP’s Habitat Goal Implementation Team (Habitat GIT). The Habitat GIT works to restore, enhance, and protect a network of land and water habitats to support native fish and wildlife populations, and to afford other public co-benefits, including water quality, recreational uses, and scenic value across the watershed. It does this by convening habitat experts from federal, state, local and non-governmental organizations to identify priorities, seek funding for projects, and leverage resources to facilitate projects that restore degraded and/or conserve high-value habitats. These habitats include wetlands, submerged aquatic vegetation, and streams. There are two Habitat GIT Staffers who provide support to workgroups associated with these habitat types and workgroups for species that depend on these habitats such as migratory fish and birds, Eastern brook trout and American black duck. This Staffer position will co-support the Habitat GIT and be the primary support for the wetland, submerged aquatic vegetation workgroups, and the black duck Action Team. As an Environmental Management Staffer in this program, you would have a unique opportunity to develop up to 3-years of professional experience through your day-to-day work activities while having dedicated time and support focused on your individual professional growth. This position offers an opportunity to work with a broad team of partners from across the Chesapeake Bay watershed representing a vast network of government (federal, state, and local) and nongovernment entities. The skills and network gained from this position will be valuable to someone seeking further education and/or career development in the environmental policy and scientific field with a focus on habitat and natural resources management. Environmental Management Staffers work a hybrid work schedule, dividing time each week between in-office work and telework.
