Field Technician position: Longleaf pine restoration

The Savannah River Site, South Carolina

We seek to fill two field technician positions for a large- scale
experiment on the restoration of longleaf pine plant communities in
the Southeastern United States.   Primary job duties will include
field, laboratory, and office tasks required for experimental studies
of plant community restoration and plant-animal interactions. The
positions will begin in mid- to late September, 2012 and will last for
3-6 months. Pay rate will be $10 per hour.  The technician will work
at the Savannah River Site, live in a town near the site (Aiken or New
Ellenton, SC, or Augusta, GA), and will join a team of two principal
investigators (John Orrock at The University of Wisconsin-Madison and
Lars Brudvig at Michigan State University) and a Lead Technician (Joe
Ledvina, Michigan State University). Housing is not provided, but low
cost options are plentiful. Successful candidates will have some
background in ecology, biology, or a related discipline.  All
applicants must be able to endure hot, humid conditions and long hours
in the field.  Previous field research experience is required.
Botanical experience or experience live-trapping small mammals is
desirable, but not required.

Michigan State University is an equal opportunity employer.  Women and
minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. *Because the research
site is a highly secure area run by the federal government, non-
United States citizens may have difficulty gaining clearance to work

To apply, please email a CV or resume and letter describing past
experience, why this position is interesting or important to you,
dates of availability, and contact information with email addresses
for two references to Joe Ledvina:  Review of
application materials will begin immediately.  Applications submitted
after August 24, 2012 will not be considered.
