Subject: [ECOLOG-L] Job: Field technician doing gypsy moth research
The University of Virginia's Blandy Experimental Farm seeks a part-time
(20-40 hours per week depending on need), hourly technician to assist with a
research project on the reproductive success of gypsy moths, a major forest
pest in Virginia. The duration of this job is expected to be approximately
5-6 months. Wage range starts at $10.14 per hour. Approximate start date
March 15-April 1.
The technician will carry out surveys of gypsy moth hatching and abundance
and will conduct experiments on reproductive success. The majority of this
work will be conducted outdoors at various forest locations, so the employee
must be willing to work during inclement weather and on uneven terrain. In
addition, the technician will perform laboratory work such as handling of
insect specimens and entering data into computer spreadsheets. The employee
will also need to be willing to work alone and to drive between forest site
locations (3 locations, with approx. 30 miles separating each one). The
employee will be reimbursed for mileage expenses if personal car is used.
Willingness to work on weekends is desired. The successful candidate will
possess a positive, professional attitude.
