I am excited to share that the DEEP Water Monitoring Group is also looking to hire two (2) seasonal resource assistants to support our LONG ISLAND SOUND water monitoring program.
Long Island Sound Seasonal Resource Assistants assist the Program staff in performing tasks associated with an intensive water quality-monitoring program of Long Island Sound. Three to four days (8 – 14 hours each) biweekly will be spent on Long Island Sound aboard the R/V John Dempsey measuring various water quality and environmental parameters, including collecting in situ and grab water samples, and filtering the samples on board for nutrient analysis. Additional sampling involves the collection of phytoplankton and zooplankton samples to assess community structure in Long Island Sound. Office work will also involve the organization of water quality data, natural resource mapping, or data entry.
These positions are full-time, temporary (i.e. 1,040 hours in duration) positions. Resource assistants work out of DEEP headquarters in Hartford, CT and conduct field work out of Old Lyme, CT and Milford, CT. The pay rate varies from $11.00 to $14.00 per hour depending on education and experience. There are no benefits with these positions.
