Assist aquatic biologists with a standardized sampling of ponds, lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers. Aquatic inventory will include sampling fish populations, creating habitat structures and monitoring their effectiveness, maintaining equipment and facilities, performing data entry and analysis, assisting in conducting a creel survey, and participating in chemical reclamation projects. Work will require employees to carry a backpack electrofishing unit, operate four-wheel drive vehicles and trailers, operate boats, and wade in streams and rivers while sampling. Technicians must be willing to participate in weekly travel and work in adverse weather conditions during long and irregular hours. Late-night and weekend work is sometimes required.
Candidates with a college degree or coursework in biological sciences and those who wish to pursue a career in fish and wildlife fields are preferred. However, candidates with experience in fish sampling techniques, fish identification, creel surveys, boat handling, and boat repair are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a valid driver’s license. A willingness to learn, a good attitude, and a positive work ethic are indispensable in this position. Working with a diverse group of people and interacting with the public is also vital. Please email a detailed resume, including three references with phone numbers, to apply for this position.
