We have added a sixth job pool to our Employment and Volunteering page!
We are looking for between 1 – 6 Ecology and/or Botany Field Technicians to work throughout the state of Colorado this summer, with the position(s) potentially extending through the winter, depending on funding and need.
Those hired will conduct investigations of high-quality upland and wetland plant communities, as well as rare plants within a study area. This work involves interpreting aerial photos and other pertinent information to select sites, determining land ownership and contacting landowners regarding access, describing and demarcating plant communities, collecting vegetation, describing soils, identifying plant species, collecting voucher specimens of unknown plant species, and completing Natural Heritage Program field survey forms. This position will require extensive travel and long days in the field. This position requires proficiency in scientific report writing, as well as experience using Microsoft Office programs and ArcGIS.
First consideration of applicants will begin March 1, 2011. Applications will be accepted for future consideration through June 30, 2011. Read the full announcement.
Please note, we have a number of very similar-sounding job announcements up right now. You can apply to more than one job pool, but please do so separately for each position and be sure to clearly state for which position you are applying.
