Research Planning has a position open for a biologist/ecologist for 
the Columbia, SC office. The candidate should have an M.S. degree in 
biology or related field and have strong field experience. This 
position may involve coastal resource mapping, oil and chemical spill 
response, and assistance with various natural resource projects 
(literature syntheses, natural resource damage assessments, etc.). 
Excellent scientific writing and communication skills are essential, 
as well as a experience in using Geographic Information Systems. 
Candidate must be willing to travel nationally and internationally. 
Typical travel is up to two weeks several times a year, and may be at 
short notice. Destinations vary widely and include some exciting, 
rare opportunities. Please visit our website to learn more about the 
types of projects and clients: www.researchplanning.com 

Knowledge in the following areas would be beneficial, but not 
absolutely necessary: salt marsh ecology, life histories of coastal 
and marine fauna, and habitat functions and services. Many potential 
projects, particularly coastal resource mapping, require the 
candidate to have strong skills in compilation and organization of 
large numbers of digital data sets, meeting facilitation, an 
understanding of coastal ecology (e.g., recognition of common marine 
and estuarine birds, fish, inverts, reptiles, mammals, benthic marine 
and intertidal habitats), and the ability to feel comfortable 
corresponding with a wide range of state, federal, and academic 
partners at various levels. Candidates should be able to work 
independently and make decisions. Oil and chemical spill response 
involves travel, long hours, a desire to work in the field under a 
variety of conditions (including riding in trucks, boats, 
helicopters, airplanes, etc.) and the ability to use basic field and 
office equipment (e.g., GPS, camera, laptop computers, basic 
software, etc.). The candidate should have an interest in learning 
new skills on-the-job in a fast-paced, emergency response 
environment. The candidate should have a strong desire to market 
existing and new clients, write proposals, present at scientific 
meetings, and publish papers.
