Description

What you will be doing: 
This position serves as the statewide Threatened, Endangered, and Diversity Program (TED Program) Leader, which consists of 10 professional staff working across the state of Alaska. The position helps guide the program’s research and conservation efforts on species of concern and coordinates the State of Alaska’s work on issues involving the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). A key goal of this position is to direct science and conservation needs for species of concern and address conservation challenges before species become highly imperiled. The position simultaneously juggles the relatively quick pace of ESA issues with the longer-term needs of research and conservation projects. The incumbent will create and maintain partnerships with other agencies, traditional region-based wildlife management programs, NGOs, universities, and other statewide, national, and international cooperators to achieve program goals. The position oversees the Division's portion of the State Wildlife Grants program, which includes administering complex budgets that require matching funds from multiple, divergent sources. This position will have the opportunity to lead a small research or conservation project of their own, if desired (<15% of time).

Our organization, mission and culture:
The TED Program works proactively with state, federal, NGO, and private partners to conserve wildlife species (especially nongame species) before they become threatened or endangered and to recover species listed under the Endangered Species Act. The TED Program leads the implementation of Alaska’s State Wildlife Action Plan (in coordination with ADF&G’s Division of Sportfish) and represents Alaska’s nongame interests at the Pacific Flyway Council’s Nongame Technical Committee. TED Program staff are working to address a diverse range of projects, including research and conservation of olive-sided flycatchers, lesser yellowlegs, golden eagles, bank swallows, red knots, collared pikas, Alaska hares, bats, and gray-headed chickadees.

The TED Program also coordinates the State of Alaska’s staff work on ESA issues. TED Program staff work with experts across the State’s various natural resource departments to provide relevant information for ESA listing and other decisions, maintaining regular dialogue with federal agency and other partners, conducting research as needed, and helping lead conservation initiatives to recover listed species.
