Here are the top conservation and science job listings for the week of April 8th, 2016:

Executive Director: The North American Butterfly Association
The North American Butterfly Association (NABA), the largest group of people focused on butterflies and their conservation, seeks an Executive Director. This is a rare opportunity to take a nationally important nature/conservation organization to the next level. This position will preferably be located in Morristown, New Jersey, but other locations may be considered.

Biological Scientist IV: Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute
We seek a postdoctoral scholar with a background in quantitative fisheries ecology and its application to management to analyze data from multiple acoustic telemetry projects being conducted throughout Florida as part of the Integrated Tracking of Aquatic Animals in the Gulf of Mexico (iTAG) initiative. A specific objective will be to conduct a gap analysis on current acoustic telemetry infrastructure and spatial ecology of high priority Gulf of Mexico (GOM) managed fish species (based on stock status, landings, and life history patterns) and begin to evaluate how data from tagging studies can help inform ecosystem-based modeling.

Director, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas: Pew
The Director, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas, will develop and lead the implementation of a global campaign to advance a new international legal instrument enabling the establishment of marine protected areas and reserves on the high seas. This will include work in capitols around the world and at U.N. missions in New York. The campaign will work closely with other organizations, including playing a core role in the coalition of 30-plus conservation organizations that comprise the High Seas Alliance (HSA) so as to galvanize international support for launching negotiations.

Global Community Manager: Airbnb
If you understand and thrive on community engagement and collaboration, you are the type of person we are looking for. Airbnb is on a mission to be the most loved hospitality brand in world where all 7 billion people can “Belong Anywhere.” As part of this vision we are creating a Community Operations team that aims to drive engagement of our community of hosts and guests, inspire them to feel more connected to the brand and find win-win situations that allow them to get more value and meaning out of their relationship with Airbnb.
