Description

Position Overview:
The Lead Botanist will lead a seed collection crew working at US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) National Wildlife Refuges and partner lands, throughout Michigan and western Ohio. The primary responsibility of the Lead Botanist will be to provide oversight and implement all aspects of the Seeds of Success protocol for this collection crew. Seeds of Success is a national native seed collection program with a mission to collect wildland native seed for research, development, germplasm conservation, and ecosystem restoration.

Duration:
March 25th – December 13th, 38 weeks. Start date flexible based on availability. 

The crew will be based out of the US Fish and Wildlife Service Michigan Ecological Services Field Office in East Lansing, Michigan. The Lead Botanist position will assist in pre-season coordination with refuge managers, CBG staff, and partners to help plan the season in March and April. The Lead Botanist will then lead a crew of two field technicians in field efforts in scouting and collecting from May to November, while helping to wrap up the season in late November and early December. During field season, overnight travel, including camping, can be expected, due to the large area covered.

This position will be employed by the Chicago Botanic Garden (CBG). CBG was a founding partner of the SOS initiative in 2002, and has been active in the program since. Over the last 25 years, the primary goal of the CBG Plant Science and Conservation Department has been to improve plant conservation outcomes through: basic and applied scientific research, collegiate education, and supporting practitioners. To this end, the garden has 27 conservation scientists, over 40 students, and over 100 practitioners in 2024. Direct management and support for crews will come from the CBG Conservation Training team. A two-day training in the SOS protocol will be provided virtually by the SOS Headquarters team, and CBG will provide an in-person onboarding and training on field safety, logistics, and field botany.

The Lead Botanist will be responsible for supervising two Field Technicians, coordinating with USFWS, partner organizations, and CBG staff to plan scouting and collecting trips, and conduct native seed collections as part of the SOS program. This team will likely spend 80% of their time in the field. The anticipated schedule is four, 10-hour days per week to make the most of travel time to the field. Field work will include navigating in remote field settings, collecting voucher specimens for herbaria, mapping plant populations, and collecting seed. Seed collection will continue through late summer as conditions permit. Occasional indoor work throughout the field season includes plant identification, seed cleaning and packing, preparation of herbarium specimens, data entry and management, uploading and manipulating GPS data, and some report writing.
 
The Lead Botanist will provide daily team leadership and oversight. The Lead Botanist will ensure quality control for all collections (correct species identification, proper phenology assessments, herbarium voucher and seed collection techniques, data entry, and depositing and shipping seeds and herbarium specimens in designated local and national institutions). 

The crew will be provided a 4WD work vehicle and supplies for field work, field safety, and seed collection. The crew will be provided a tablet and laptop, and MiFi hotspot for planning scouting and collection trips, editing and updating geospatial data through the SOS ESRI applications, creating maps, updating additional external reporting requirements, conducting data QA/QC, and report writing.  
 
Responsibilities:

-       Coordinate with USFWS and CBG staff to identify ecoregional priority species for seed collection, review historic collection sites and identify gaps in geospatial data.

-       Coordinate with USFWS and CBG staff to plan field operations and solve logistical problems, as well as incorporating safety plans for conducting field work safely.

-       Draft and communicate weekly hitch plans to CBG and USFWS staff. Use inReach satellite device to check in/check out each field day. Understand and follow field safety procedures.

-       Provide oversight, organization, and guidance to safely lead crew of two field technicians in field operations.

-       Successfully navigate to prospective sites using road maps, applications, GIS, and 4WD vehicle and hiking.

-       Assess and monitor phenology of populations to determine optimal seed collection timing.

-       Collect site level data for each seed collection.

-       Update and maintain all required population and geospatial data on Survey123 and Field Maps. Sync data at end of each field trip. 

-       Properly dry, store, and process seed, including shipping to seed cleaning facilities.

-       Ensure QC of digitally collected scouting and collection data, as well as herbarium specimen data.

-       Identify potential collection locations of priority species through scouting, analysis of herbarium records, previous SOS collections, and vegetation mapping. 

-       Collect 3 herbarium vouchers for each potential collection site. Take appropriate photos as instructed in SOS protocol.

-       Ensure collection of all required population scouting data, seed collection data, and photos are properly recorded and shared with CBG and USFWS
