This position supports the ability of the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve – Maryland (CBNERR-MD) to plan for and implement habitat restoration and conservation projects proposed through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) as well as other funding mechanisms that advance community and habitat resilience and water quality improvement goals (e.g. the Chesapeake & Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation funding programs). CBNERR-MD comprises three components with five landowners/partners and works across programs to address local site issues and state-level coastal management objectives. This position will support CBNERR-MD’s work to plan and implement restoration and conservation initiatives within the Reserve’s three targeted watersheds. Projects led by staff will advance the science of resilient restoration practices to ensure they are designed for maximum water quality and resilience benefits and extend the Reserve’s work monitoring some of the state’s Resiliency through Restoration Initiative projects to inform adaptive management.
