Description :

The Open Space Institute and Bloomingdale Management Advisors are looking for a 
research associate to assist in an effort to take stock of the state of 
knowledge about, and practice in, the use of land protection to assure water 
quality.

Tasks

The tasks involved include:

1.	Search for journal and other articles that represent the leading science on 
the impacts of land protection on water quality, where there are both ecological
benefits and benefits for human use. Before the search begins, the research 
associate would participate in a meeting with members of the project team to 
discuss and specify the literature search in greater detail.

2.	Produce a bibliography of sources found, with a phrase or sentence indicating
its content. For key articles, produce a brief, 3-4 sentence summary. If any 
key thinkers emerge through the search, we will want a brief summary of their 
professional biography. 

3.	Conduct a website and literature review to obtain background information on 
leading cases where land protection is being used to ensure water quality. A 
starting-point list would be developed in a planning discussion with the project
team.

4.	Conduct a website and literature review to obtain background information on 
the state of discussions about the interplay between land protection and water 
quality within groups that have a central role in policy, practice, or research.
For example, this may involve identifying key associations and examining the 
agendas of their annual meetings to identify relevant speakers, sessions, and 
posted material. This task would also begin with a project-team discussion.

5.	Depending upon the associate, and project capacity and needs at the time, the
associate’s work may also include developing summaries of leading practice 
cases (Task 4) and the state of thinking among key groups (Task 5)
