Description
We need a field technician to work closely with a M.S student who is studying movement patterns of the Florida Sand Skink (Plestiodon reynoldsi) through improved pastures. The skink is a small, fossorial, federally Threatened species with a geographic range restricted to the ridges of central Florida. Ideally the technician will reside near the study site to minimize travel. The skink is captured by a series of drift fences and bucket traps counter-sunk into the sandy substrate in which the skink resides. The technician will work independently or with a graduate student to check bucket traps daily in the hot Florida sun. Accurate data collection is essential.
Qualifications
We need a technician with (or very near completion of) a BS Degree in biology or a related field. The research demands great attention to detail while working in bright sun in hot humid weather. Ideally the technician lives near the study site near Frostproof Florida.
