position in W AK, 2 ecosystem field courses

Summer field tech for NSF project in W AK
I am looking to hire a Res Tech for the period 1 April to 1 September to work on our NSF YK delta goose herbivory project.
They need to be pretty field savvy and a bit tough as there is a big early season camp put in via snow machines and hauling gear from Chevak to our field site, 20 miles west.
~$18 per hour for 172 hours per month for 5 months: almost $16k plus the project provides all the food for the summer.

The start date is 1 April, so it is likely the candidate might not be a student, the start date is pretty fixed.

       Ecosystem Field Studies (EFS) is pleased to announce summer sessions of our 2 field course opportunities: Caribbean Ecosystem Field Studies & Colorado Ecosystem Field Studies.  These courses (ENST 391) are approved for 3 undergraduate semester credits through the Environmental Studies Program of the University of Montana at Missoula and are open to undergraduate students in an ecosystem related department/major such as yours.
