    Hello all,
    
    Please distribute the following job posting to anyone who may be interested.
    
    Thank you for your time,
    
    Rhiannon Jakopak
    [log in to unmask] 
    
    
    
    
    The Deer-Elk Ecology Research (DEER) Project and the Wyoming Range Mule Deer Project 
    are collaborative projects between the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research 
    Unit of the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. The 
    overarching goals of these projects are to evaluate how a variety of factors shape 
    population dynamics of mule deer to provide a mechanistic approach to monitoring and 
    management of mule deer. 
    
    The DEER Project is located in the high-desert ecosystem of southern Wyoming. The focus 
    of the DEER Project is aimed at evaluating the role of competitive interactions between 
    mule deer and elk and how potential competitive interactions structure populations. The 
    DEER project will also address key questions that continue to be a concern for mule deer 
    populations including effects of harvest, habitat condition, drought, fawn recruitment, 
    buck dispersal, and predation. 
    
    The Wyoming Range Mule Deer Project is located in southern region of the Greater 
    Yellowstone Ecosystem in western Wyoming. The Wyoming Range Mule Deer Project is 
    aimed at addressing questions relating to how nutritional relationships among seasonal 
    habitat conditions, behavior, human disturbance, climate, and disease shape population 
    dynamics of mule deer.
    
    The primary tasks for these positions include capturing, collaring and monitoring of 
    neonate ungulates, assessing cause-specific mortality of neonates, collecting monthly 
    fecal samples from adult ungulates throughout the study area, and recording vegetation 
    survey data. These tasks will require candidates to use GPS units, radio telemetry, 4WD 
    vehicles, and maintain accurate database information on a daily basis. Work schedules are 
    irregular and include long days and weekend work, especially at the beginning of the field 
    season. In addition, work days typically entail 5-15 miles of hiking per day – most of which 
    is off-trail. During the neonate capturing period, work is characterized by long days/nights 
    with little time off. Following the neonate capture period, a more normal work schedule will 
    be established to allow technicians to enjoy summer in the Rocky Mountains. The study 
    areas are mountainous and remote, so long days of hiking in difficult terrain will be 
    frequent.  Accommodations while in the field will be provided in the form of wall tents 
    and/or field houses. Weather conditions throughout the summer can be variable and 
    adverse weather conditions are to be expected.
    
    REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS 
    B.S. or working towards finishing a degree in a wildlife-related field 
    Must be able to maintain a positive attitude during long periods of work in the field
    Willingness to learn new skills and work cooperatively with fellow technicians and 
    supervisors
    Strong organizational and detail-oriented attitude
    Must be willing to work 12-16 hour days for multiple days at a time
    Must be in good physical condition and willing to hike up to 15 miles per day
    Must be willing to work in desert conditions with ticks and other biting insects
    Must possess valid driver’s license 
    Ability to work in all types of weather (rain, snow, wind, extremely hot or cold 
    temperatures)
    
    PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS
    Experience using a handheld GPS 
    Experience with radio telemetry
    Experience with capturing and handling live animals
    4WD and ATV operating experience
    Previous experience with vegetation surveys
    Familiarity with western plant identification
    Wilderness first aid skills
    
    
    We will be hiring 2 seasonal Wildlife Field Technicians and 1 Crew Lead for the DEER 
    project and 3-4 seasonal Wildlife Field Technicians for the Wyoming Range Mule Deer 
    Project. 
    
    POSITION DATES: 
    DEER Project:
    Start: One technician to start ~10 May and two others to start mid/late May.
    End: Late August with the potential for one technician to stay on through Oct 31.
    
    Wyoming Range Project:
    Start: One technician to start early May and two/three others to start mid/late May.
    End: Late September with the potential for one technician to stay on through early/mid 
    November.
    
    Agency: University of Wyoming; Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit
    Location: Southwest Wyoming; Western Wyoming
    Salary: $1,200 – $1,600 month (DOE)
    Last Date to Apply: 01/07/2018
