Salary: Interns $1000/mo living stipend; Technicians: $1300-2000/mo, DOE

Start Date: 02/26/2018

The U.S. Geological Survey, in collaboration with California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), and Idaho State University (ISU) is hiring 3 technicians and interns for sage-grouse research near Susanville in Northern California. The research is focused on a peripheral population of sage-grouse and the impacts of wildfire. Primary duties include capture and marking sage-grouse, radio-telemetry, monitoring of sage-grouse nests and broods, habitat surveys, avian predator monitoring, data entry and management, and other biological surveys as needed.

This is a temporary, full-time position that runs from the first week of March through the beginning of August, with the possibility of extension depending on funding and performance. Primitive housing will be provided and successful applicants will be required to stay on site during work periods. These positions are based out of Wendel, CA.

The field site is rugged and can be challenging to work in. Temperatures can range from well below freezing to above 100 degrees F, and inclement weather is always a possibility. Nearby attractions include Lassen National Park, Eagle Lake, numerous National Forests, and the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains.


Technicians and interns must be able to work independently in rugged, remote terrain. Applicants must have strong interpersonal communication skills, ability to follow directions and work as part of a team. Applicants must have enthusiasm for wildlife research and a strong work ethic. The field work for these positions sometimes requires an erratic schedule with long hours (nights, early mornings, daytime work, weekends), often in inclement weather conditions (cold, snow, mud, rain, heat). Applicants must be able to hike long distances over rough terrain carrying field gear.

• Previous experience in wildlife field work
• Previous experience operating 4WD vehicles and ATV’s highly preferred
• Previous experience with radio-telemetry desirable, but not required
