Applicants with previous fieldwork experience and familiarity with Rocky Mountain wildflowers and/or bees are encouraged to apply, although no prior experience is required. We will train first-timers with a strong interest in ecology.

In addition to helping with fieldwork five days per week, the technician will be expected to be an active participant in the research community. The technician will attend weekly seminars and lab meetings.

Dates: We expect the field technician to work from May to August 2020. However, start and end dates are flexible to accommodate the best applicants.

Compensation: The research technician will live onsite at the RMBL. We will provide room and board, station fees, a partial transportation subsidy, and a stipend.
