Assistant for Sierra Work 2015

Summer research assistant needed for work in the Sierras located near Independence Lake. This is the first year of a research project looking at the dispersal distance, foraging range, and genetic isolation of bumblebee populations and their relationship to floral resource availability. I am hiring an intern interested in plant taxonomy to conduct botanical surveys of the research meadows. The ideal hire should be interested primarily in plant ecology research, and self motivated to conduct an independent research project that I will facilitate. The position requires either living in a cabin, a rural town or camping, so preferred applicants will view this as an exciting opportunity to combine solid work experience with weekend adventuring opportunities! Must have reliable transportation!
