2020. The work will be based at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory
(https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rmbl.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cmadeline.hennessey%40uconn.edu%7C66681b1756924bd2673b08d7c4d37cf3%7C17f1a87e2a254eaab9df9d439034b080%7C0%7C0%7C637194285060045362&sdata=glvY%2BVhmua%2FReUkN2jesAckr42P3gZQI0UaGhGvBZ1Q%3D&reserved=0) in Colorado. The assistant will help with data
collection of vegetative, physiological, and floral traits for long-term
projects. These projects are aimed at testing whether plant populations
can adapt quickly enough to environmental change to avoid extinction.
The fieldwork can be strenuous and sometimes involves extensive hiking
at high elevations and work during inclement weather. In addition to
field and laboratory work, the assistant is expected to be an active
participant in the research community. Applicants should have some
college level coursework in ecology. Those with prior laboratory or
fieldwork experience with plants are especially encouraged to apply. The
full-time position is available from early June to the end of August,
with exact start and end dates flexible. Compensation includes station
fees and housing at RMBL, and a salary.
To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names and
contact information for two references. Screening of applicants will
begin March 11 and continue until the position is filled. Applications,
or requests for more information, should be directed to Dr. Diane
Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
