Job Title: Herp Technician

Job Type: full-time temporary position

This position will run from mid-August through April 2006. The project is an
experimental study of the response of reptile and amphibian communities to
various silvicultural prescriptions on the Cumberland Plateau of northern
Alabama. Duties are primarily running drift fences, coverboards, and
artificial pools, but also include radiotelemetry of eastern box turtles,
habitat sampling and data entry. The job would expose you to a variety of
field techniques in a very diverse ecosystem, but it also involves long
hours alone in the field, hot, humid weather, and close personal contact
with ticks, chiggers, and poison ivy. Housing is available near study sites.
Pay is $17,000/year and health benefits are available.
