Seasonal Rangeland Vegetation Technician

SEASONAL TECHNICIAN needed for a variety of field projects studying rangelands across the Intermountain West.

All projects are part of Dr. Kari Veblen’s lab at Utah State University, investigating restoration possibilities across the Intermountain West. Technicians will be expected to identify forbs, grasses, and shrubs to species, dig and characterize soil pits, and follow lab protocols. Duties may also include lab work and data entry.

Field technicians will work under the supervision of researchers in the field but will be expected to be independent and reliable at collecting field data. Ideal candidates will have field experience, some plant and/or soil classification experience, a strong academic background, and will work well in groups and have enthusiasm for fieldwork. Long workdays are expected and technicians need to be flexible with schedules.

Position runs from early May thru August 2020. Work will be based in Logan, UT. In May-June, sites are spread throughout Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington and we will primarily work 8 days on 6 days off. In July-August, work will be based out of Soda Springs, ID and work will primarily consist of 4 days on 3 days off. Transportation between Logan, UT and field sites will be provided. Technicians are responsible for their own housing between work periods and while conducting lab work in Logan, UT.

Review of applicants will occur on a rolling basis and will continue until positions are filled. Pay is $11-$14/hr depending on experience; $15/day camp per diem while in the field.
