The Ruffed Grouse Society/American Woodcock Society (RGS/AWS) seeks to add a Western Great Lakes Biologist/Forest Wildlife Specialist (FWS) Coordinator position to our Regional Wildlife Biologist team. The Western Great Lakes Region includes Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois. This position will work from home, which must be in the state of Wisconsin. This position will provide leadership to RGS/AWS efforts to enhance early successional forest habitat on public and private forestlands and to provide for thriving ruffed grouse and American woodcock populations within the Western Great Lakes region. This position will also coordinate the organization’s two existing FWS positions – both of whom support private land forest habitat development in Wisconsin – and assist other staff members with developing additional FWS positions in other states. Qualifications include a Master’s degree in Wildlife Ecology or related field of study or a Bachelor’s degree with substantial experience, with preference for an extensive background in forest wildlife ecology and forest management.
