Botany or Mammalogy Fulltime Field Technicians in The National Ecological Observatory Network

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) seeks fulltime Field Technicians. The primary work location is Fairbanks, Alaska, with support sites throughout Fairbanks. 

NEON is a $430 million dollar observatory project dedicated to understanding how changes in climate, land use and invasive species impact ecology. For the next three decades NEON will collect a comprehensive range of ecological data on a continental scale across 20 eco-climatic domains representing US ecosystems. NEON will use cutting edge technology including an airborne observation platform that will capture images of regional landscapes and vegetation; mobile, re-locatable, and fixed data collection sites with automated ground sensors to monitor soil and atmosphere; and trained field crews who will observe and sample populations of diverse organisms and collect soil and water data. A leading edge cyber-infrastructure will calibrate, store and publish this information. The Observatory will grow to 300+ personnel and will be the first of its kind designed to detect and enable forecasting of ecological change at continental scales.

The Field Technician reports to the Field Operations Manager and will be hired as a Field Technician I, II, or III level depending on skills, experience, and education. The positions available will have an emphasis on either botany or mammalogy.

The positions are open until filled.
