Wildlife Biologist Full-time Position

Hello all,
Please see posting for wildlife biologist position in
Inuvik, NWT, Canada. I thoroughly enjoyed working this
position for 3 years, but had to leave due to personal
family reasons. Although I am no longer an employee
and have nothing to do with the hiring, I would not
hesitate to apply if you have experience working with Aboriginal organizations and cultures, but do not have a Master's degree. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone who would enjoy wildlife work in a relatively undeveloped region of Canada, North of the Arctic Circle.
Wildlife Biologist Full-time Position
The Gwich’in Renewable Resource Board (GRRB) was
established in 1993 as a part of the Gwich’in
Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement to be the main
instrument in wildlife, fish and forest management in
the Gwich'in Settlement Area (GSA). Renewable
resources are an important part of the Gwich’in
culture, lifestyle and economy. The Board is working
with all parties in the GSA to ensure that these
resources are used and managed sustainably.
Position: The Wildlife Biologist will work for the
GRRB as a member of a team to help implement the
Gwich’in Land Claim Agreement. The main duties of the
position include:
1. being a resource person regarding wildlife issues
in the GSA,
2. managing GRRB funded community-based wildlife
research and management projects in the GSA,
3. reviewing and monitoring renewable resource
research and management programs related to the
wildlife in the GSA,
4. reviewing and commenting on relevant territorial
and federal legislation, policies, and management
5. working with the governments’ staff and community representatives to prepare wildlife management plans, and 6. assisting with other assigned tasks.
Qualifications: A successful candidate should have a
Master’s Degree in Biology, Renewable Resource
Management or related field. Work experience in the
North, especially with Aboriginal land claim
organizations, and familiarity with the Gwich’in Land
Claim Agreement and renewable resource co-management
systems would be an asset. The successful candidate
should be computer literate, have the ability to work independently, be familiar with integrated resources management and, as an active team member, be committed to working with people at the community level.
Location: Inuvik, NT
