Oferta de trabajo con salamandras gigantes

Stream Amphibian and Fish Technician (1 position) needed approximately June 20th through Sept. 1st 2008 with some flexibility on either end. The technician will help a University of Montana graduate student conduct mark-capture-recapture surveys of Idaho Giant salamanders in the Lochsa River and Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area of Idaho (on the Idaho-Montana border). The technician will work approximately 40 hr weeks (some weeks will be > 40 hrs. and some will be < 40 hrs.). We will car-camp for extended periods, hike up to 10 miles a day carrying heavy backpacks (a fish electro-shocker) to access remote sites. Whitewater kayaking skills are a plus (but not necessary) as our field sites are a stone's throw away from amazing kayaking and surfing (especially in June/July).

Preferred candidates do not need prior stream research experience; however, they need to be excited about ecology, streams, and amphibians. They must be as excited to see their 1st Idaho giant salamander as they are their 1000th salamander. Preferred candidates will have a B.A or B.S. in natural sciences, but I will consider students that will be seniors in college. Technicians will have the ability to develop an independent research project if desired. Wage is $8-10.00 per hour, pending experience.

E-mail cover letter, resume, and the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of two references to: adam.sepulveda@mso.umt.edu
