Temporary Field Technician Positions with the Corridor Project
We are hiring 2-3 technicians to work with us this fall on the Corridor
Project (PIs: Nick Haddad, Ellen Damschen, Doug Levey, John Orrock, Lars
Brudvig, and Julian Resasco). Our landscape-scale fragmentation
experiment is designed to understand the long-term dynamics of habitat
connectivity in a longleaf pine savanna system.
Successful candidates will be based full-time at the Savannah River Site
(SRS) in New Ellenton, SC. Job duties will include: pan trapping bees,
plant demography surveys, data entry/proofing, and field site
maintenance. Positions are expected to last approximately two months
with a preferred start date in September 2017. Technicians will be paid
$12/hour. Housing is not provided.
Successful candidates will hold a bachelor’s degree in ecology or a
related field and have previous field experience. Additionally,
candidates should be able to endure hot/humid conditions and long hours
in the field. Because the Savannah River Site is a highly secure area
run by the U.S. Department of Energy, non-United States citizens may
have difficulty gaining clearance to work there. Women and minorities
are strongly encouraged to apply.
Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled, but applications will no longer be considered after
September 15, 2017.
To apply, please email a CV and a cover letter that describe your past
experience, why you are a strong candidate for this position, dates of
availability, and contact information (email addresses and phone
numbers) for three references to our project manager/lead technician,
Melissa Burt, at email@example.com.
