For anyone interested – here is an exciting and challenging position with KNA in Aniak.
General Description and Responsibilities: This is not your typical Fisheries Biologist position. It combines fisheries research and monitoring with outreach, education, capacity building and cooperation to ensure the sustainability of Alaska Native subsistence opportunities. The job is as much about people and preserving a way of life as it is about fish. You will be working cooperatively with both state and federal management agencies on a variety of fisheries assessment projects in addition to conducting independent projects evaluating water quality and fish habitat. To accomplish this you will be hiring and supervising technicians and college interns, working with local subsistence users, schools and communities through the KNA Fisheries Community Outreach Program. This is a unique opportunity to employ a creative approach to the integration of western science with traditional knowledge for the purposes of management of the fisheries and other aquatic resources on the Kuskokwim River.
