We are seeking a graduate student to join a collaborative research project with Colorado State University, the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the City of Fort Collins. This project integrates citizen science with ecology and social science to understand the value of urban natural areas for people and wildlife.
This study will take place in partnership with the City of Fort Collins's innovative Nature in the City initiative, which envisions "a connected open space network accessible to the entire community that provides a variety of experiences for people and functional habitats for plants and wildlife." The graduate student will be responsible for coordinating an ongoing citizen science project and conducting complementary social and ecological studies. The project is designed to support rapidly growing communities to make evidence-based conservation and development decisions.
Please refer to the position announcement for more details. Review of applications will begin on October 14th and will continue until a suitable candidate is identified.
