The research will take place in wetlands of western Lake Erie, at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge and Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.

The technician will also perform vegetation surveys for the first 3 weeks and throughout the field season.

Salary will be $1200 – $1500/month depending on experience, housing provided. Transportation at field site and within Ohio is also provided.
