The Landscape Ecology And Fire Research Laboratory at Texas Tech University is seeking 1-2 short-term, paid Field Technicians to assist in a study of Mexican Spotted Owl nesting habitat in Lincoln National Forest, New Mexico. Field Technicians will participate in inventory surveys at new locations, monitor locations that were previously known to be nesting sites, and measure attributes of nesting habitat. This will require hiking off-trail over rugged terrain, and working mid-day, after sunset, and before sunrise. Field teams will camp for days at a time. Arrangements for transportation/lodging outside of field dates are flexible and will depend on the technician’s situation. Technicians are needed for 4-7 days at a time from early-to-mid April through the end of May 2020, with the possibility of extending longer into the summer. This is a paid position, and the pay rate will be determined as a monthly or hourly rate depending on technician’s schedule/availability, to be discussed prior to hiring.
Recent graduates of a wildlife studies, ecology, or similar degree program will receive preference, but we encourage all to apply.
To Apply: Submit brief cover letter, resume, and contact information for up to three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications received by December 31, 2019, will receive full consideration.
