The Biology Department at the University of Nebraska at Kearney is seeking a fisheries technician to aid with graduate student research on fish use of introduced habitat structures across various impoundments in Nebraska. Field sampling will include boat electrofishing and boat-mounted PIT tag antennae to locate fish such as channel catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, and black crappie. Field research may require > 8 hours per day on some occasions and sometimes in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Some independent work with minimal supervision may be required occasionally.
The technician may also assist in other graduate student and state agency field sampling and laboratory processing as needed. Statewide travel and overnight stays may be required, but all related costs will be covered or reimbursed. Please note that housing is not provided. Start and end dates are negotiable.
For more information contact William Schriener at 636-359-6754 email@example.com or Logan Dietrich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A valid driver’s license and a good driving record are required. Applicants should have a strong work ethic and a desire to work with fish and wildlife. Those applicants pursuing a degree in or who have earned a degree in Fisheries and/or Wildlife Management, Biology, or other related fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
