Invasive Plants Coordinator
FSU Job ID: 42457
Closing Date: October 26, 2017
The Florida Natural Areas Inventory is seeking a qualified individual to serve as the program’s Invasive Plants Coordinator. Since 2001, invasive species and their impacts on native species biodiversity have been a fundamentally important part of FNAI’s focus. Our work has included systematic surveys of invasive plants statewide to inform and help prioritize land management decisions; the development of data standards and data collection protocols; and tools, such as iMapInvasives, to help support data collection, analysis, and management. FNAI has been involved with Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs) and the Florida Invasive Species Partnership (FISP) and wishes to do more through those relationships. FNAI works closely with the Upland Invasive Plants Management Section at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
FNAI is looking for a person with a high level of expertise in Florida invasive plants and familiarity with the community of organizations and people who are working with invasive plants. A significant part of the position will involve overseeing and completing compliance (effectiveness) inspections following invasive plant management efforts on public conservation lands; FNAI does not conduct spraying or other on-the-ground invasive plant management. We also want to grow our relationships with CISMAs and FISP and therefore seek someone with excellent communication and organizing skills, and a demonstrated ability to build and sustain productive partnerships. Additionally, the coordinator will also help plan and coordinate the activities of FNAI staff working on projects related to invasive species. The position will require frequent travel for fieldwork and meetings. The Invasive Plants Coordinator will work closely with FNAI’s Data Manager to incorporate invasive species data into FNAI’s programmatic databases, so it is desirable that the person filling this position have at least a basic understanding of databases.
