IMMEDIATE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
April 1 through June or as additional work acquired
TRC Environmental Corporation, an environmental consulting company with an office in Laramie, Wyoming, is seeking an on-call wildlife biologist. The work will be part-time and dependent upon specific project needs. Applicants need to reside in the southern Wyoming or the northern Colorado area--other applicants will not be considered at this time.
Qualified individuals must have a minimum of a bachelor degree in Biology, Wildlife Management, Botany, Range Management, or a closely related field and at least 3 months of relevant field experience, and they must be familiar with native plant and animal species of sagebrush steppe and grassland communities of the West. Duties would include greater sage-grouse lek surveys, passerine and raptor surveys which require identification skills by both sight and sound, vegetation inventory (i.e., plant list), wildlife habitat mapping, raptor nest monitoring, and wildlife surveys (such as pygmy rabbit, burrowing owl, mountain plover surveys). Knowledge of GPS/GIS and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation procedures; the ability to identify plant species within sagebrush steppe, grassland, and wetland communities in the West; and field experience that displays versatility and a broad range of relevant experience in related studies (e.g., vegetation community/wildlife habitat mapping, vegetation sampling, plant identification, and wetland delineations) is a plus.
The position would require the ability to work outdoors conducting biological fieldwork in remote areas and extreme weather conditions, to orient and navigate using topographic maps, to travel and work for extended periods of time away from home, to work within budget and time constraints, and to work well with other technicians and supervisors. In addition, the applicant must have strong organizational, verbal and written communication skills; must possess a valid driver's license and a driving record acceptable to our insurance carrier; and must be willing to submit to and able to pass pre-employment and subsequent periodic drug and alcohol testing. Salary would be commensurate with experience and education. Please send a cover letter and resume to TRC Environmental Corporation, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
