Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute—Timber Wolf Alliance
|Position Available:||Year Round|
|Hourly Rate or Pay Range:||Commensurate with experience|
|Application Deadline:||Position open until filled.|
The Timber Wolf Alliance (TWA) coordinator is a part-time position (usually around ten hours each week) open to individuals willing and qualified to support a nonprofit organization dedicated to using science-based information to promote an ecologically-functional wolf population in areas of suitable habitat and to promoting human coexistence with wolves.
Individuals who serve as the TWA coordinator are responsible for a variety of communication, organizational, and educational tasks, as well as working with the TWA educator on planning and implementing educational projects. The coordinator is supported by Northland College student employees, volunteers who serve on the Timber Wolf Advisory Council, and the executive director of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute (SOEI), but much of the work is completed independently with little direct supervision. Some travel, as well as evening and weekend work, is required for this position.
While some work must be performed in person, most work can be completed virtually if desired.
