Science Support Services
We offer a number of individual and organization-based services to enhance the creation of new opportunities for collaboration. Email us at email@example.com for inquiries.
Our organization-level support is in the form of a Scientist-On-Call position, which offers the expertise and support of a scientist without offering a full-time position. For organizations completing work that would be classified as non-profit, but are in need of a fiscal sponsor for grants, we can also discuss a closer relationship.
Individual services are in support of scientists continuing and re-starting their careers, with opportunities ranging from career advice/advising, to volunteering, up to developing a soft-money position into full-time employment with Remote Ecologist. We ask for a small donation (button above) if you interact with our staff for any of the smaller-scale work. For deeper involvement, we're in the thick of things with you.
Need a Non-Profit Affiliation?:
Many field scientists lack an affiliation while in between different training stages, or when trying to come back into the field after a hiatus. Remote Ecologist offers a network, with established projects, that can nurture these questions back to the forefront. We mainly specialize in supporting field and laboratory -based science that informs conservation and restoration of natural systems. To that end, by partnering with a current thematic collaboration through volunteering or applying for funding to do adjacent work, you can find the support and collaborative network to keep your research program on track.
Supporting science requires a number of nuts and bolts to be in place, including ethical review/approval (e.g., IACUC, Institutional Biosafety), insurance, support of dive operations (if applicable, AAUS scientific diving support), logistical support, grant and publication review, and collaboration. Additionally, all scientific work done in collaboration with Remote Ecologist is eligible to be promoted on its social media and media channels, increasing visibility and communication of the results.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a-la-carte services listed below.
Collaborations and Logistical Support
Collaborations that are already established provide our scientists with both the physical assets needed to complete work with existing partnerships, but also to purchase and dispose of materials and supplies in an appropriate manner.
Science and conservation careers have specific nuances for advancement that career services and academic advisors are often ill-equipped to offer. This can include evaluating programs like Fulbright. Contact us for consultation and materials (including model CVs).
Grant writing for different federal and state agencies and foundations all require nuance with particular Requests for Proposals (RFPs). We provide conceptualization, pre-submission review and management, and reporting of funds to grantors.
Scientist In-Residence or On-Call
Many organizations, like nature centers, zoos, aquariums, and small NGOs, only have partial funding available for specific conservation and science projects. Hiring a full-time Ph.D. or M.S. scientist can be challenging, so we work with clients to provide access to that expertise, and forge collaborative projects regionally that can sustain over the long-term. Contact us for more information.
Science proposed through Remote Ecologist will have appropriate ethical review to ensure appropriate ethical scientific procedures are in place (e.g. IACUC, IRB).
Peer review can be tricky. Just like you would have colleagues review your manuscript, we will help with the publication, and publicity, process. We also offer technical translation to/from English and Spanish.
As a large number of Remote Ecologist's thematic collaborations involve marine science and oceanography, ensuring that scientific divers are operating under an appropriate program is our upmost priority.
