Seeking ecology/science communication job

I am an ecologist (BSc. Ecology, Master of Forest Conservation), writer and geographic information systems technician. I currently live in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada and work for the Ontario Natural Heritage Information Centre, part of the NatureServe Network. I have six years of work experience in my field. I am also a proud citizen of both Canada and Switzerland. English is my mother tongue and I am fluent in high German (C2) and Swiss German (thanks to many summer jobs and volunteer positions in Switzerland during my university years), and have an intermediate command of French. Personally I am ready for a new adventure and professionally I am looking for a new challenge. The Alps are calling me back. So I am searching for a job in Switzerland. Some parts of Austria, Germany or France would suit me too. My greatest passion and talent is in science communication. I have been applying for jobs posted on sites like www.naturschutz.ch, www.greenjobs.de, www.eth-gethired.ch and www.wildtier.ch. I have also started "cold calling" non-governmental organizations and ecological research institutions. Does anyone have any suggestions about how else I might find a job in Switzerland?

Thanks so much for your help.

Re: Seeking ecology/science communication job

Hi, Martina,

I can only say good luck to your job search in CH in Ecology and related field. My husband has a doctorate degree in biological sciences: Landscape Ecology (GIS is one of the chapters in his dissertation) from USA and had 4 years of post doctoral experience in an US national lab and some publications. He IS still looking for a job in his field after we moved back to his homeland in mid January this year. He has applied for a few jobs in the field but has been rejected- did not even get an interview. Females are welcome to apply for those job positions he applied. You might have a better chance than my hubby. Now he is planning to be a science teacher- above secondary school level.

Keep looking!

Hi Martina,

I know that now this thread is quite old but I am in a similar position. Were you able to find a science communication job in Switzerland?
