biology to assist with a graduate research project examining the
relationship between body condition and reproduction of lesser scaup
(Aythya affinis). Field work will be conducted on the Yukon Flats
National Wildlife Refuge in interior Alaska. The Yukon Flats is one of
the most remote and pristine areas in interior Alaska, offering a

skills are desired. We are looking for applicants with a strong desire
to live in a remote field camp and the ability to maintain a positive
attitude under difficult field conditions including hot temperatures,
long days searching heavily wooded and brushy habitats, mosquitoes,
flies, and brown and black bears. Personnel are required to carry
firearms in the field for bear protection. Camp life is primitive and
all pertinent field gear is provided. Watercraft, aircraft, firearms,
and bear safety courses are also provided. The employment period will be
21 Apr through approximately 1 Sep 2008; start date is not flexible. Pay
