Field Research Assistant, Yale School of Environment

Sublette county, WY

Job Title: Field Research Assistant 

Organization: Yale School of Environment

Overview: The Yale School of Environment seeks a field-ready, highly motivated individual to support summer field research in Wyoming. Experience in plant identification is preferred; current and recent Haub School students encouraged to apply.

Location/Projects: The project is based in Sublette county and housing is provided in the Pinedale area. Field work will take place in the Upper Green River Basin and consists of setting up grazing exclosures around livestock wells on BLM grazing allotments. The field team will return to the wells periodically throughout the summer to track compositional change and measure productivity. There are a few other projects happening over the course of the field season (one MESc student and an undergraduate thesis project), so it’s likely the position will assist with data collection for multiple projects.

Start/end Dates: The position would run the length of the summer with relatively flexible start and end dates, likely early June through mid-August. Preference for candidates able to work as much of the summer field season as possible (May-August). 

Application Deadline: April 15
