Field Tech (Full time, 6 months)

I have a six-month field technician position available to assist with several studies in Kansas grasslands based out of Wichita, Kansas.  These projects funded by NSF, USDA, EPSCoR and state monies address: 1) invasive plant biology in the Flint Hills of Kansas, 2) restoration of plant diversity in prairies, 3) trophic interactions on CRP grasslands, and 4) effects of pathogen-legume interactions in perennial grasslands.  More information on some of these projects is available on my webpage (   The tasks required will primarily involve fieldwork, although some greenhouse and laboratory activities are also likely.  The ideal candidate would be highly motivated, be able to work outside in all conditions, have some experience with data collection, and be capable of operating a UTV.  Some background with plants is preferred but applicants with the ability to learn quickly would be acceptable.  Pay will be commensurate with experience.  The position will begin in May depending on applicant availability.  Those interested should direct inquiries to Greg Houseman at
