Temporary Biological Sciences Technician (Wildlife) with the USDA Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station: Series 0404, Grade 4, 5, 6 and 7.  Duty station: Alta, Sacramento or Placerville, California.

Start and end dates: At least three contiguous month period between May 2017 to end of September 2017

Salary:  Approximately $2,500 – $3,500/month depending on GS grade (4, 5, 6 or 7)

Project description: Project focuses on wildlife movement in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California (study area falls in the general area of Auburn, Cisco and Nevada City, CA) with a duty station in Alta, Sacramento or Placerville CA (dependent on project needs).  Understanding how roads isolate wildlife populations is critical to guide future mitigation efforts.  This work aims at developing a better understanding of how structures that provide safe passage across the road (e.g. culverts) help connect wildlife populations on opposite sides of the road.  We use small mammal traps, along with road-kill surveys, to examine the effects of roads broadly across the landscape.

Duties: Lead a team responsible for monitoring wildlife.  Applicant should be responsible, organized and motivated.  Field teams will predominantly be working with small-mammal traps but may also assist in road-kill surveys, camera-traps (remotely-triggered wildlife-cameras), and assessing underpasses for wildlife suitability.  Field work will involve navigating and hiking across rugged terrain to field sites while carrying heavy equipment.  Field work may also be largely focused on the road verges and will likely require extensive work on the road-side.  During periods without field work, efforts will be focused on data entry and identifying wildlife species in camera-trap photos.  Small-mammal trapping occurs in the early morning (6:00 AM – 10:00 AM) and again in the early evening (4:00 PM – 8:00 PM) to ensure small mammal safety.

Requirements: Must have experience handling small-mammals, working with small-mammal live-traps and California small-mammal identification. Applicant should have previous supervisory experience and be comfortable managing conflict.  Applicant should be detail oriented with the ability to take careful notes in field and office settings (Microsoft Excel experience).  Applicant should be in good physical condition with the ability to hike at high elevation and in rugged terrain while carrying equipment.  Applicant should be comfortable working outdoors and in challenging field conditions (e.g. hot/cold) including along roadsides.  Applicant should have basic competency using GPS/maps to locate field sites.  Available to work full-time (40 hours/week).

Desired qualifications (not required): Driver license; experience with camera-traps, possibility to work alternative schedules (e.g. 4 days on with 3 days off; 40 hr/week average) & an interest in ecology and wildlife biology.

Ph.D. & M.Sc. Positions – Fisheries productivity in northern boreal lakes

Enthusiastic, team oriented, and self-motivated students are encouraged to apply for a Ph.D. and MSc positions to conduct research on fisheries productivity in boreal freshwater ecosystems. This project is a multi-

disciplinary collaboration between the University of Alberta, industry, government and other sponsors. The main project goals include: i) community assembly in boreal lakes, ii) modelling food-web dynamics, iii) effects of climate change on fish production, iv) determining best practices in monitoring and measuring, v) primary production in lakes, and vi) developing field based studies to determine causative relationships between age and growth and other life history characteristics in relation to differing lake environments. These research projects are fully funded and will provide key insights into how to develop habitat offsets for fisheries, a new and emerging field in restoration and conservation biology. Applicants will be under the supervision of Dr. Mark Poesch, but will interact regularly with scientists and team members in industry, provincial and federal governments.

Ph.D. applicants must have a graduate degree in Biology, Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary Biology, or a related field. Ideally, the same would be an asset for MSc applicants. Applicant must have a high overall GPA (especially in related courses). Experience with ecological modeling, freshwater fish ecology, database management, and programming skills are considered an asset. Applicants should clearly articulate how this research will build on your existing experience, specific skills and provide a date of availability.  Applicants interested in this position, please send an email to Dr. Mark Poesch (poesch(at) with a cover letter identifying research interests, CV, transcripts (unofficial accepted), writing sample, and a list of three references.

Please note review of applications will commence on May 1, 2017 and the competition will remain open until the position is filled. The ideal start date is September 1, 2017, but other arrangements (for earlier or later start dates) can be made.

Battelle and its affiliate, Battelle Ecology, Inc. manages and operates the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEONTM)project, which is solely funded by the National Science Foundation. A 30+ year project dedicated to understanding how changes in climate, land use and invasive species impact ecology, the observatory=92s scientists and engineers are collecting a comprehensive range of ecological data on a continental scale across 20 eco-climatic domains representing US ecosystems.  Our teams use cutting-edge technology, including an airborne observation platform that captures images of regional landscapes and vegetation; mobile, relocatable, and fixed data collection sites with automated ground sensors to monitor soil and atmosphere; and trained field crews who observe and sample populations of diverse organisms and collect soil and water data.  Once structures are completed, a leading edge cyberinfrastructure will calibrate, store and publish this information.=20=

The Observatory includes more than 500+ personnel and is the first of its designed to detect and enable forecasting of ecological change at continental scales.


The Field Technician reports to the Field Operations Manager and will be hired as a Field Technician I level depending on skills, experience, and education.

=95Field Technician I – The Field Technician I is a biological sampling lead performing seasonal and periodic sampling activities and sample processing. Seasonal field sampling is conducted with the assistance of temporary field crews under the guidance of the Field Technician.


Based in the Appalachian-Cumberland Plateau, the research conducted at Domain 07 is primarily located within the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians and Blue Ridge Mountain physiographic provinces. The domain is comprised of three research sites: 1] Core site (ORNL) at Oak Ridge, TN, 2] remote site (GRSM) at Great Smokey Mountains National Park, TN, and 3] remote site (MLBS) at Mountain Lake Biological Station near Pembroke, VA.

The terrain at all three sites ranges from ridge-and-valley medium-cover deciduous forest with elevations ranging from 800 to 1200 feet, to=20 heavily forested mountainous terrain with elevations ranging from 876=92 to 6643=92.

Domain 07 is host to one of the largest and most diverse stands of temperate old-growth forest in North America. Along with the splendor of the observation sites, Domain 07 also has trying aspects such as challenging off-trail hiking terrain, stinging insects, venomous snakes, and the occasional contact with a curious black bear or a territorial wild boar.

The climate of the domain ranges from the temperate in the spring and fall to the discordant in mid-summer and winter. While winters are cool, frequent snow events and ice storms can make travel problematic. Peak sampling in the summer can also be cumbersome with temperatures in the 90s and high humidity Nearby Knoxville is a regional destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
