We have an opening in our Fresno office for a Botany Project Manager with experience as a plant ecologist and botanist.

Our ideal candidate will possess an M.S. or Ph.D. plus 5–7 years of relevant professional experience. Relevant experience consists of work in plant taxonomy, a solid background in plant ecology, experience designing and implementing quantitative field surveys, and experience with habitat/association mapping, environmental impact analysis, regulatory permit preparation, and mitigation feasibility studies.

We work on projects located throughout California, Hawaii, and elsewhere, so a suitable candidate must be willing to travel.
