The Great Basin Institute, in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, is recruiting four (4) Research Associates to perform botanical surveys for invasive and noxious weeds in support of the Forest’s Statewide Noxious Weed Program. The main duties for this position include: treating noxious weed populations by hand or through chemical application of herbicides; inventorying wilderness and non-wilderness forest lands for noxious weed populations; and mapping treatment areas and plant populations using a hand-held PDR (personal data recorder) and GPS unit.
