Wanted: Summer Technician in Marine Ecology

A technician is needed to assist in a project examining intertidal seaweed-herbivore interactions in Acadia National Park, Maine. This project, part of the National Parks Ecological Research Fellowship Program, will take place primarily at Mount Desert Island Bio. Lab.
(MDIBL) and Acadia. Some work in Boston may be required. Significant time will be spent outdoors in the rocky intertidal. This position requires a flexible schedule since some work will be conducted in the early mornings, at night, and on the weekends (often depending on the tides). In addition to gaining experience in laboratory and field settings, the technician will have opportunities to interact with park rangers, park guests, and other scientists and students at the MDIBL.

Dates of employment are June 1st-August 31. Salary will be $4000 for this period. Free housing will be provided on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Transportation to and from field sites will be provided.

Please send resume, transcripts, and 3 contacts for references to:

Jeremy Long
Marine Science Center, 430 Nahant Road, Nahant, MA, 01908

Applications will be reviewed starting April 15th and the position will remain open until filled. Applicants attending this year’s Benthic Ecology Meeting at VIMS are encouraged to say hi.
