Work Study Technicians Needed for Fall 2014 Semester
We are looking for two students with work study and availability M,W,F to work as crew members on an electrofishing survey of the Penobscot River Watershed. The field season will extend from the end of August until early October, with the potential for additional lab work in the winter. During the field season students should be able to start work no later than 10am on M,W,F. Weekend field work will be required as well. We are examining the effects of dam removal on fish communities in the Penobscot River. Work will consist of full days (6-10 hours) on the Penobscot River and tributaries capturing fishes via boat electrofishing and collecting biological data from those specimens. Students can expect to gain valuable experience working on boats, identifying and handling fishes, and operating electrofishing equipment. This position can be stressful and will require quick thinking, a positive attitude, and the desire to learn about the river ecosystem. The ideal candidates will have experience identifying and/or handling common fish species in Maine and be comfortable working in boats and on large, swift, and potentially dangerous rivers.
Please e-mail Jonathan Watson ([ mailto:jonathan.Watson@Maine.edu ]jonathan.Watson@Maine.edu) to apply. Include a list of your availability and boating/ fishing experience.
