Also Listing:

Trout Unlimited is seeking 2 Field Technicians for work on threatened populations of Lahontan cutthroat trout in northern Nevada.  We are monitoring population trends and movement in response to habitat improvements and increased connectivity from the removal of several culverts.  Field sites can be remote and rugged, work is physically strenuous, and conditions are often uncomfortable (desert environment – hot days, cold nights, occasional storms).  Interns must be in excellent physical condition, and be able to hike long distances with heavy equipment and camp for long periods.  Work requires experience with 4WD driving, an ability to read and navigate by topographic maps, use of GPS to find site locations, ability to trouble shoot equipment problems and other unforeseen situations, attention to detail with data collection, and ability to work independently and well with others.  Fisheries background including electro-shocking experience a must; experience with Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tagging is highly desirable.

Stipend is $2000/month + $20 per diem for work days; benefits are not included.  Sampling to start in early August and runs through approximately the first or 2nd week of Oct.  Technicians begin and end the season in Boise, ID, or possibly Reno, NV, and must have an excellent driving record to be covered individually by our insurance.  Interns need own sleeping bag/pad, and tent if desired, but TU has most other camping equipment (2 person tent, stove, pots, etc).  TU provides vehicle, gas, and occasional hotel and other travel-related expenses throughout the field season.  

APPLICATION CLOSING DATE is April 27th, 2012.  If interested, please send your cover letter, resume and 3 references (names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and relation to applicant). If possible, please combine all in one PDF and send by email, to:
