Summer paid job – Watershed monitoring

The Aquatic and Riparian Effectiveness Monitoring Program is looking for a student to work on a crew conducting watershed monitoring this summer. The student must be currently enrolled in a degree seeking program and returning to school in the Fall. The position will start as soon as possible and end September 25. Our crews start training on May 17, but we can be flexible with the student on attending all the required  training.

We are looking for a high speed individual who wants to learn stream survey skills and enjoys camping for extended periods. Crews work 8 days in a row followed by six days off during the field season.

Surveys are conducted in the Northwest Forest Plan area from northern California to the Washington border with British Columbia. If you know of someone who is still looking for summer work please have them contact me ASAP. Depending on qualifications, the job pays 13.41 to 15.00 an hour with and additional $34 per day for per diem.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience using technical equipment such as GPS units, laser and electronic compasses to map stream channels, field data recorders, and YSI chemistry meters.
