World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks a Forest Senior Infrastructure Scientist.
The Senior Infrastructure Scientist (Senior Scientist) leads on advancing the science and technology that underpins ecologically sound and resiliently built and natural infrastructure. WWF is expanding an innovative program to spur a new era in developing future infrastructure that ensures the well-being of both people and our planet. The Sustainable Infrastructure Initiative explores and reinforces the benefits of securing natural and nature-based infrastructure while embedding sustainability solutions into every stage of the built infrastructure life cycle. It targets strategies and solutions that improve the efficacy of early-stage actions in strategic and spatial planning, engineering feasibility and design, and project preparation – when decisions have the greatest impact on ultimate outcomes. The Senior Scientist plays a central role in advancing the initiative, building bridges between the natural science, engineering, social science, and planning communities to work with infrastructure development authorities and critical private and finance sector stakeholders to increase awareness and enhance capacities so that sustainable measures become the norm in infrastructure policy and practice.
