Job Close Date: 
August 31, 2014 - 5:00pm

Ecosystem Services Specialist

The Organization
The Willamette Partnership works to increase the pace, expand the scope, and improve the
effectiveness of conservation. We believe that measuring, tracking, and communicating the
results of conservation investments can spark an exciting leap in conservation outcomes. Our
success depends on working with partners with roots in place and community, and on our ability
to connect good ideas, good people, and good solutions.

At the Partnership we approach our work through collaboration, depending on contributions
from a diverse coalition of partners from the conservation, business, government, agriculture,
and science communities. For us, it is important to tailor solutions to our partners’ sense of
place. Today we’re engaging that approach with partners in places across the western United
States.

The Position
The Partnership is seeking to expand our team of policy and technical specialists that conduct
research, analysis, and writing to support the ongoing work of the Willamette Partnership. Our
specialists collaborate with project managers in developing the policy, science, and tools
necessary to build and operate ecosystem markets and conservation incentive programs for
water and biodiversity.

This position is expected to contribute to new and ongoing projects that may include:

  • Developing a set of national best practices for water quality trading;
  • Designing policy and technical tools for quantifying, tracking, and communicating
    changes in water quality and habitat; and
  • Operation of existing environmental markets
