Battelle and its affiliate, Battelle Ecology, Inc. manage and operate
the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) project, which is
solely funded by the National Science Foundation. A 30+ year project
dedicated to understanding how changes in climate, land use and invasive
species impact ecology, the observatory’s scientists and engineers are
collecting a comprehensive range of ecological data on a continental
scale across 20 eco-climatic domains representing US ecosystems. Our
teams use cutting-edge technology, including an airborne observation
platform that captures images of regional landscapes and vegetation;
mobile, relocatable, and fixed data collection sites with automated
ground sensors to monitor soil and atmosphere; and trained field crews
who observe and sample populations of diverse organisms and collect soil
and water data. Once structures are completed, a leading edge
cyberinfrastructure will calibrate, store and publish this information.
The Observatory includes more than 500+ personnel and is the first of
its kind designed to detect and enable forecasting of ecological change
at continental scales.
We are currently seeking multiple Temporary Field Technicians and
Temporary Lead Field Technicians.
