Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Lead Economist is responsible for conducting rigorous technical analyses, collaborating with colleagues on projects, project management, strategy development, contributing to our capacity building program, fundraising, and conveying the results of our analyses in clear, concise, and compelling ways. S/he does this through technical and practical understanding of the interface between conservation and development, the ability to drive policy change, and by working well in a team.
