With the language set to UK English, Naturalist disambiguates to a choice of either Botanist or Nudist.
With US English, Naturalist disambiguates to only Nudist.

Is Nudist intentional for Naturalist? A quick check of online dictionaries doesn't have that definition. Is it just a typo and Naturist was intended?

There's not much doubt that a naturist is one thing, and a naturalist is another.

When it comes down to it, though, neither term seems to be part of the drop-down from the search box.

Putting both terms into the search box gives very similar (if not identical) results. This must be an error in the CV - I'll make this a keyword request. (Being a naturalist myself, but not a naturist.)
