*Lead Scientist--Soil Sciences*

Soil management decisions made in coming years will strongly influence
climate trajectories and climate adaptation potential in crop and pasture
lands. These critical decisions will directly affect crop and livestock
yields and our ability to meet food, fiber, fuel and water demands without
expanding the global agricultural footprint and creating environmental
impacts. The Nature Conservancy seeks a scientific thought leader with a
proven record of success in soil sciences to drive a high-impact, global
research agenda on improving soil health.  S/he will lead development of
this exciting new field within the Conservancy, testing and demonstrating
work at scale across Conservancy and partner landscapes. Through a
rigorous, global soil science research initiative, the Conservancy seeks to
explore scientific evidence for the role of improved soil health as a
component of natural climate solutions that mitigate a significant
proportion of anticipated greenhouse gas emissions, a key to thriving soil
biodiversity, and a critical input to agricultural production.  As a member
of the Global Lands team, the Lead Scientist will synthesize and create
evidence addressing sustainable agriculture, including the role of improved
soil management to cost-effectively sequester and store carbon at scale.As
a member of the Science Cabinet, a collaborative group of all Conservancy
Lead Scientists, the Lead Scientist will contribute topical expertise to
cross-cutting science issues for the organization, and represent the
organization in professional society conferences, university partnerships,
and high-level events around critical conservation issues. Mid- to
advanced-career scientists with expertise in related fields (including soil
microbiology, agronomy, biogeochemistry, climatology, pedology, edaphology,
rangeland management) are encouraged to view the full position description
