This position is now filled. Please check back for future opportunities.
Join me in the forests of northeast Washington in September to survey plants at deer exclosures as part of a research study investigating the impacts of recolonizing wolves on deer herbivory. Technician may also have the opportunity to install trail cameras, review camera footage, and more.
We will be identifying plants and measuring the heights. This work involves a lot of kneeling, bending, and crouching. Surveys require a high attention to detail during repetitive tasks. Technician should be comfortable working long days, hiking cross-country across uneven terrain for about 0.25 mile at any given time, and carrying large, awkward fencing supplies. We will be moving rolls of fencing and cutting wire. Plant identification is useful, but not required. Safety is a priority – your safety in the field is the number 1 priority.
Technician must provide their own transportation to the site near Tonasket, Washington. At that point, a shared vehicle will be used to access the survey sites. Technician is responsible for their own food.
Time commitment is flexible. Please let me know your availability between Sept 1 – Oct 10.
How to Apply
Email me with your resume, 2 references, and your availability from Sept 1 – Oct 10. Please indicate if you feel comfortable identifying plants of northeast WA. Please indicate if you have CPR and/or First Aid training.
