The Great Lakes Commission (Commission) has an immediate opening for a self-starting, highly motivated team player to join our habitat and invasive species programs. This position reports to the habitat program manager and will assist with implementation of a collaborative effort to establish an adaptive management framework to address non-native Phragmites across the Great Lakes basin. The adaptive management approach will help improve the management of Phragmites through increased management efficiency and reduced uncertainty associated with treatment options, contributing to the restoration of ecologically resilient and diverse ecosystems at both the local and regional scales. Treatment uncertainty will be reduced through a learning-based management system and result in site- and condition-specific best management practices. The incumbent will coordinate the adaptive management process and facilitate communication, promote coordination, contribute to planning efforts, and support program development and management of the Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF) and the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative, both of which are shared efforts between the Great Lakes Commission, the U.S. Geological Survey, GLC member states and provinces and other organizations. See www.greatlakesphragmites.net for more information on the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative and the PAMF. This is a three year position based at the Commission’s offices in Ann Arbor, MI. Continued employment following the three year term may be possible based on mutual interest and available funding.
