Senior Data Scientist, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Washington DC

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is hiring a senior data scientist to join their Science & Evaluation team to support the use of data in assessing progress toward their conservation goals. This position requires a creative approach to problem solving and a “very strong foundation in topics such as spatial and non-spatial database design, data analysis and statistics.” The position is based at their headquarters in Washington, DC and requires travel.

Note that they are looking for a PhD or Master’s with experience in experimental design, database design, and data analytics. Experience with conservation outcome definition and/or program effectiveness at a natural resources group desired. Skills with spatial data and programs (ArcGIS), database management (doesn’t mention SQL but I’d imagine that would be helpful), and languages for statistical analyses (R, Python, …) required.
