Conservation Science Officer
Closing date: 20 June 2019
The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is seeking to employ a Conservation Science Officer. The purpose of the position is to assist with the development of a Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) database to improve objectivity, accuracy and efficiency in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs). Through an online web application, this SDM database will allow for a robust measure of biodiversity and increase ability to flag sensitive species for early stage EIAs anywhere in the country. This will ensure that no sensitive species are overlooked in any EIA scoping phase assessment and will guide not only early stage rejections, but also inform the selection of specialists for in-depth EIA surveys. This position will also drive strategic fieldwork to fill data gaps where threatened or endemic species are thought but not yet confirmed to occur. Finally, this position will assist with the process of driving legislative amendment and capacity development towards an improved EIA process.
This position will be based at the EWT office in Cape Town. The Endangered Wildlife Trust is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants who have not been contacted within 10 days of the closing date must please assume that their applications were not successful. The EWT reserves the right not to make an appointment. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. Closing date 20th June 2019. Applicants are requested to submit a CV, and a detailed motivation as to how and why they would be the best possible candidate for the post plus contact details of at least three references to Emma Chisare on firstname.lastname@example.org
