Hi all,


We are searching for a creative and energetic person to support two science programs at WWF: our Fuller Science for Nature Fund and our newly launched global science network.  Please circulate.  Thanks!





World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the global conservation organization, seeks a Program Associate to coordinate all aspects of the Kathryn Fuller Science for Nature Program, as well as help develop WWF's Conservation Science Network, a new initiative designed to connect, support, and grow WWF's community of scientists working around the world.


The Program Associate will develop effective communications and outreach materials, online and in other media; organize symposia, seminars, and other events; assist senior staff in preparing reports, proposals and presentations; conduct research and analyses; manage projects, databases, and online content; coordinate and write reviews of scientific literature, synthesizing relevant science news items. He/She will interview scientists across the global WWF network to produce profiles or collect items of interest, and identify and invite WWF scientists to participate in science network activities.


A Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience plus two years relevant experience in conservation science or a related field is required. The successful candidate will have excellent writing and communication skills; strong organizational, research and analytical skills, experience using and developing online tools and resources; familiarity with conservation science issues; and a successful record as a team player and independent worker. Must be detail oriented, creative, and proficient in Microsoft Office software. International experience is preferred.


This position has an initial duration of one year, with the possibility of extension based on funding.
