You need the entire url including the "OpenDocument"  to get the job
description.

This is a full-time contract position through June 30, 2007, with the
possibility of extension. The incumbent will work with the Natural Heritage
& Endangered Species Program (NHESP) in the Division of Fisheries and
Wildlife (DFW) to prepare "conservation management practices" (CMP)
documents for selected wildlife species that are listed under the MA
Endangered Species Act in order to protect their populations; maintain their
habitat for long-term viability; while at the same time maintaining the
opportunity to sustainably manage forests.
Specifically, "conservation management practices" documents will be prepared
by NHESP for at least five rare species or species groups with funding from,
and in collaboration with, DFW's Forestry Program and the Department of
Conservation and Recreation's (DCR) Division of Water Supply Protection and
Bureau of Forestry.

The successful applicant will research, draft, and produce "conservation
management practices" (CMPs) documents for species, or groups of species,
that describe how to minimize the potential impacts of forestry activities
on species listed under, and protected by, the MA Endangered Species Act
(MESA). Developing CMPs will benefit both rare species and forest management
by 1) having the most recent scientific studies guide NHESP?s review of
projects involving the harvest of forest products, 2) improving the
consistency and timeliness of the reviews for many species, 3) providing the
natural resources and forestry community with more predictable results of
FCP reviews by NHESP, and 4) providing guidance for the planning and
harvesting of forest products. Examples of these documents can be accessed
at http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/nhesp/cmpdraft.htm
