Last Date to Apply
We are seeking three field technicians to assist with a large-scale camera trapping project on Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska. The overarching objectives of the project are to develop monitoring protocols for large mammals (wolves, black-tailed deer) while also assessing habitat relationships and species interactions. Technicians will be responsible for navigating to remote field locations to deploy and monitor remote cameras throughout the island. Housing on the island is provided, as is travel to and from the island at the beginning and end of the field season. We anticipate the field season lasting from approximately mid-May through mid-August.
Technicians will need to be able to hike for long distances across rough terrain while maintaining a positive work attitude and collecting accurate data. Shared housing is provided, so the ability to be a decent roommate is required. We expect technicians to be enthusiastic about the project and the chance to work in such a unique location as southeast Alaska. To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and contact information for at least two references to Shawn Crimmins ( by March 31.
