Oferta de trabajo en Alaska

We are seeking applications from enthusiastic persons who are interested in summer ecological field research in remote northern Alaska. Our field site is located near the Toolik Field Station, Alaska, and is the focus of research by nearly 100 scientists who work on a variety of terrestrial and aquatic ecology projects. The overall objective of the research program of the Environmental Data Center is to expand the collection of baseline environmental data complementary to and in extension of those already collected by other long-term studies, such as the Arctic LTER, and make them available to the research community. One area of focus is on the timing of biological events in relation to climatic conditions. We established a long-term plant-phenology monitoring program, in which the dates of first occurrences such as leaf emergence, flower development and seed dispersal are recorded. We also record bird species daily seen or heard along established routes, monitor the dates of species arrival and departure, and document bird breeding and migration statistics. We will be repeating the bird surveys and plant phenology monitoring, as well as developing a small mammal inventory.

Job responsibilities will include conducting bird and plant phenological surveys as well as data collection, entry, and organization under general supervision. In addition, candidates must possess a willingness to interact with other scientists and statewide scientific personnel at the field station to share findings and coordinate efforts. Assistance with other tasks related to the overall goals of the Environmental Data Center, such as, but not limited to, water sample collection, small mammal trapping, and routine lab equipment maintenance may be necessary. The position will report to the Toolik manager of the Environmental Data Center.
