US: The Dangermond Fellowship is an exciting opportunity provided through the partnership between National Audubon Society & ESRI. The Audubon Enterprise GIS team is hiring 5 Dangermond Fellows to assist in supporting Audubon’s Enterprise GIS platform. This prestigious fellowship is designed with the aim to foster the next generation of leaders in the Enterprise GIS and nonprofit/conservation sectors. Fellows will receive extensive and immersive training in the full ArcGIS platform at both the ESRI campus in Redlands, CA and at the Audubon headquarters in New York City. The position is a one-year commitment and starts in June 2018 until June 2019.

Fellows will work full time over the summer to attend trainings, the ESRI User Conference, and spend time on a GIS-related project at a unique Audubon field location (center or an office). In the fall and spring, Fellows will work part time and remotely from their college location. This is an excellent opportunity for an exceptional conservation-focused or GIS student to gain experience in using ESRI’s entire GIS platform to support a large nonprofit conservation organization that is a leader in enterprise GIS. Fellows will be mentored by experts in the GIS platform. The goal of the program is to provide Fellows with enterprise level exposure in a GIS department that is at the forefront of the GIS Enterprise landscape. Experience with GIS server technologies, cloud servers, database management systems, application development, and account management from an ESRI President’s Award winning team will be gained by hands-on application.
