Position description: The Nature Conservancy of New Jersey is working with
partners to pilot marsh and oyster reef restoration techniques that are
relatively new to New Jersey. Major components of the project include
ecological monitoring and living shoreline installation. The Coastal
Restoration Technician will work with TNC staff and partners in the field
and office to monitor the responses of vegetation, animals, and hydrology;
organize and analyze scientific data; coordinate monitoring activities of
partner organizations; assist with installation of oyster reef breakwater
living shoreline projects, including preparing the site for installation,
contacting contractors, and arranging logistics for staff and volunteers
groups. Work will include long days in the field identifying and counting
species (plants, invertebrates, fish, birds, etc.), taking scientific
readings, sample collection and processing, and recording findings. In
addition, office work will be required to organize and analyze data,
coordinate monitoring activities of TNC and partners, summarize scientific
literature, and arrange logistics of living shoreline installation. As some
of the work is tide dependent, the work day will sometimes begin before 8 or
end after 5 and some weekend and evening work may be required. The
Technician may instruct interns and citizen science groups as part of the
restoration and monitoring effort.

The Nature Conservancy is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
