JOB: Conservation Scientist/Rapid Inventories at Field Museum in Chicago

Background
The rapid inventory team conducts surveys of remote wilderness areas and provides
social and biological information to decision-makers to help establish effective
conservation areas. Based out of The Field Museum—one of the world’s largest natural
history museums—our team of biologists and social scientists works in close
collaboration with conservation organizations, indigenous and campesino peoples,
universities and museums, and national and regional governments.

Since launching the program in 1999 we have completed rapid inventories in 28
different locations —20 of them in the Andes-Amazon region of South America—and
provided the Peruvian, Bolivian, and Ecuadorian governments with technical support for
the creation of 18 new conservation areas.

Position
The Conservation Scientist is an expert in a biological, geological or geographical field.
We are looking for scientists with South American expertise and a strong passion for
the Andes-Amazon region, who value concrete conservation results above other
scientific achievements. We are interested in experts in mammals, birds, amphibians
and reptiles, fishes, flora or geology, hydrology, and soils, and candidates with GIS
and/or remote sensing skills are an added plus.

The Conservation Scientist will work within the Andes-Amazon program of the Keller
Science Action Center, together with other biologists and social scientists on the
inventory team, and will have great opportunities to collaborate with other scientists in
the Action, Collections and Research Centers at the Field Museum.

Specific Responsibilities:
Rapid Inventories:
• Participate as one of the lead scientists in the biological/geological inventory
• Provide insights into ecological and/or cultural connections between their area of
expertise and other inventory groups
• Lead the writing of their chapter and appendices in the technical report
• Think carefully and creatively about conservation recommendations

Data Analysis/Research:
• Conduct research in the Andes-Amazon geography that has a direct impact on
conservation action
• Organize, digitize, and share Field Museum specimens and data collected during
rapid inventories, in collaboration with the Museum’s Collections Center
• Lead creative analysis of rapid inventory data for high-impact publications

Follow-up Action
• Help develop other technical documents that support the creation or management
of protected areas and creative presentations of scientific information to decision-
makers
• Contribute to the creation of conservation tools and training opportunities for
conservation professionals, scientists, and other stakeholders

Qualifications:
Ph.D. in a natural sciences field, tropical scientist (biologist, geologist, ecologist,
geographer) with more than 3 years direct work experience in Latin America; superb
written and spoken Spanish and English skills.

Critical Skills:
The successful candidate will be a strong field scientist with an ease and agility in
multidisciplinary and multicultural teams, communicate well to diverse audiences, be
comfortable in creating and analyzing large and complex datasets, revel in working with
the people and collections of a natural history museum, and feel a deep commitment to
wilderness conservation and the quality of life of indigenous and rural peoples.

Travel:
This position is based in Chicago. The work involves travel to South America, likely
close to 15-20% of the year.
