Ecological Restoration Coordinator (Posted 1/17/2020)
The Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC) has an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual to oversee VNRC’s dam removal program, and to provide technical support on a range of policies and programs related to land and water conservation. This is a new, full-time position that will replace a part-time, highly qualified, Dam Removal Project Coordinator. It provides an excellent opportunity to shape the position so that it aligns with the particular skill sets of the person filling it.
VNRC is Vermont’s oldest independent environmental advocacy organization. VNRC works from the grassroots to the Legislature to advance policies, programs and practices that strengthen the foundation upon which Vermont’s economy thrives — vibrant communities and healthy downtowns, clean and abundant fresh water, working farms and forests, wild places, and clean energy.
Candidates should have a minimum of 2-4 years experience in biological science, ecology, hydrology, engineering, or related professional experience, and a college degree in a related field, although professional and life experience may substitute for formal education. Qualified candidates must also have: excellent writing and presentation skills; the ability to work collaboratively in a busy work-environment; strong technical and analytic skills; attention to detail and the ability to manage multiple projects concurrently; a passion for Vermont and protecting its environment; a commitment to promoting equity and environmental justice; and a belief that individuals working together can affect positive change.
