Position Details

090 Endangered Species Specialist

This Cooperative Extension Specialist will pursue research and outreach focused on conflicts stemming from management of endangered species. The CE Specialist will be housed in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at UC Davis. California is the most populous state in the nation and has a world-leading economy. This places great demands on our environment and has led to California having more endangered species than any other state in the country. This position will address the urgent need to integrate the university research community with stakeholders and constituents whose lives and livelihoods frequently are affected by, the numerous endangered species found across our state. The Specialist will be expected to develop a program that complements existing state-wide university research strengths in endangered species ecology, conservation, and conflicts. These programs will minimize conflicts to diverse industries such as forestry, agriculture, ranching, commercial fishing, urban development, energy production, or others, thereby improving species management. The candidate will develop partnerships with important stakeholders such as federal and state wildlife agencies, US Bureau of Land Management, US National Park Service, US Forest Service, CA Energy Commission, and NGOs/private groups among others.
