Sage-grouse field technicians
Job Type: full-time temporary position
Posting Date: 11 Feb 14
Closing Date: 11 Mar 14
Duties potentially include, but are not limited to, conducting lek counts (April through May), monitoring nest success and hen and chick survival via radiotelemetry, collection of vegetation data, data entry, maintaining field vehicles, and other miscellaneous duties as needed. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in radiotelemetry and in operation of 4WD trucks and ATVs on low-maintenance roads. Applicants must enjoy working and living in a remote rural area with a diverse group of people including private landowners and livestock producers. Conditions include extreme temperatures, wind, rattlensnakes, and abundant prickly pear. Work schedule is extremely dynamic and demanding, including late nights, early mornings, some long days during the peak of nests hatching, and unpredictable days off—applicants must be willing to work when needed and take days off when the opportunity arises. The rewards include the endless vistas of central Montana, abundant outdoor recreation opportunities within a short (1-2 hour) drive, calf branding and roadside chats with ranchers, phenomenal wildlife viewing, and wildlife research experience. A strong work ethic, the ability to work alone all day in remote areas and be self-motivated, good physical condition, and sense of humor are a must.
The wage is $11.58 per hour plus free housing. Successful candidates will be hired as short-term workers through the University of Montana’s Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit; there are no benefits associated with these positions.
