Applied Climate Science Fellow
The Nature Conservancy
Colorado is poised for significant expansion of new renewable energy infrastructure, which has the potential to negatively impact native species and habitats if not carefully sited and managed. As a member of TNC-Colorado’s Conservation Science and Planning Team, the Applied Climate Science Fellow will explore the implications of accelerated renewable energy development for our climate-resilient conservation strategies in eastern Colorado and the broader Southern High Plains region (the “project area”), which is a priority location for TNC and partners. The Fellow is a fully funded, two-year term position.

Drawing on the results of recent TNC analyses (e.g., Power of Place-West) and other projections of renewable energy development in Colorado, the Fellow will identify plausible renewable energy buildout scenarios for the project area and determine the feasibility of integrating other conservation stressors, such as climate change and habitat conversion resulting from agriculture or exurban development. The Fellow will then lead a spatially explicit assessment to forecast likely impacts of buildout and stressor scenarios on priority landscapes (e.g., TNC’s Resilient and Connected Network), habitats, and potentially native species.

The Fellow will then work with TNC staff and external experts and stakeholders to evaluate whether current TNC climate-resilient conservation strategies are sufficient for ensuring regional biodiversity and habitat protection goals can be met in the face of accelerating renewable energy development, ongoing climate change, and other modelled stressors. The Fellow may also help develop recommendations for updates or additions to conservation strategies, based on the outcome of the evaluation.
