The primary responsibility of the Ecologist and Partnerships Coordinator is to inform forest management and restoration efforts using the best available science within the context of Klamath Bird Observatory’s mission to advance bird and habitat conservation. They will engage with existing collaborations, and work to develop new and diverse partnerships that promote resilience, sustainable management, economies, and community well-being in oak and conifer forest ecosystems. This work will contribute to a larger western program of Partners in Flight conservation delivery. Core job duties include coordinating and leading restoration partnerships (e.g. Klamath Siskiyou Oak Network) and contributing to forest collaboratives to provide expertise to inform planning and evaluate success. Grant writing and ongoing partnership building will be essential job duties. In addition, the Ecologist and Partnerships Coordinator will provide project support for long-term monitoring, applied ecology studies, and species-specific research. Depending on qualifications, the ecologist may contribute to study design, field survey training and oversight, data management and quality control, statistical analyses, report and manuscript writing, and community and scientific presentations.

Klamath Bird Observatory advances bird and habitat conservation through science, education, and partnerships. We use birds as indicators of the healthy and resilient ecosystems on which we all depend. Our program areas reflect the highest conservation priorities for reversing the decline of western bird populations and the habitats on which they depend. Our current applied ecology programs focus on improving the management and restoration of conifer forests, oak woodlands, riparian habitats, and alpine meadows. Our theoretical research improves our understanding of historic, current, and future population trends of birds in those same ecosystems and studies birds throughout their full annual life cycle to identify the limiting factors that birds face during breeding and non-breeding seasons. We bring our results to bear through science delivery involving partnership driven engagement in conservation planning, informing the critical decisions being made today that will have lasting influences on the health of our natural resources well into the future. Klamath Bird Observatory is striving to maintain and build upon our positive, supportive, and inclusive work culture.
