Field Biologist Position in Everglades National Park

I'm seeking to fill a position for a field biologist to assist with
the collection of tree demographic data in Everglades National Park.
The minimum requirement is a BS/BA in a biological or environmental
field. The position requires an individual that is capable of
working independently with a minimum amount of supervision. The
primary responsibilities of the position will be to locate and census
trees in pre-established plots, measuring growth and survivorship,
maintain seed traps and monitor tree seedlings. Secondary tasks will
include processing seed trap contents and entering data into computer
spreadsheets. This work is part of a long term study of savanna
dynamics in response to disturbance and invasion by exotics.

The position will require extensive time spent in the field, usually
not accompanied by others. The Florida Everglades can be a
challenging environment in which to work, with high temperatures,
humidity and insects. The position is full time, is available
beginning in October or November and will continue through May or
June. Salary will be approximately $12.50 per hour, depending on
experience, and will also include a modest stipend for housing. This
is a temporary position and as such does not include medical
insurance, paid leave or sick time.

To apply for the position, please send (via email preferred) a letter
of interest, a cv or resume, and contact information for three
references to: Applications will be reviewed
until the position is filled.

Please contact me for more information or with specific questions
regarding the position.
