Job Description/Major Duties:
The U.S. Geological Survey Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center =
Boise, ID, is seeking an Ecologist (GS-11) to design and carry out a spec=
distribution modeling project to predict current and future distributions=
big sagebrush communities in the western United States. Primary objective=
of the research will be to develop models to predict distributions of
sagebrush and associated species in relation to current bioclimatic
settings, account for plant ecophysiological responses to climate
variability, and predict future potential distributions under climate
change.  Other objectives include addressing the role of fire and invasiv=
species in shaping sagebrush community distributions. The research requir=
an understanding of many aspects of plant ecology, disturbance ecology,
climatology, ecophysiology, invasive species biology, and natural history=
The incumbent will develop new or refine existing methodological approach=
to defining species-environment relations by utilizing climate prediction=
modeling species distributions, and defining ecological niches. The
incumbent will integrate a variety of statistical and computer modeling
approaches to develop and test new ways of understanding species
distribution and ecosystem function. The incumbent researcher will
communicate with agency and independent experts to develop protocols,
present preliminary findings at scientific and management meetings, and
publish research results.
