    POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Lead Scientist
    Conservation Science Partners (CSP) seeks a Lead Scientist who will provide analytical and project
    management leadership and support as part of a team of ecologists for landscape and conservation
    planning projects. Most projects focus on US and North American terrestrial ecosystems, but may include
    freshwater systems, as well as interactions with human systems (e.g., land use, water use, protected
    areas, social networks). The work requires highly creative quantitative thinking based on in situ and
    remotely sensed data, computer modeling, and advanced inferential techniques. Outcomes of projects
    are designed to explain ecological phenomena and lead to tools and strategies decision‐makers can use.
    This position will likely emphasize active or future projects involving: modeling the ecology (and
    phenology) of fuels and fire in arid systems, applied statistics, mathematics, machine learning methods,
    ecological data science, and species habitat modeling. The individual in this position will work with others
    at CSP to help promote a culture of diversity, creativity, innovation, and experimentation.


    About Conservation Science Partners:
    CSP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit scientific collective established to meet
    the analytical and research needs of diverse stakeholders in conservation projects. Our mission is to apply
