Summer Student Trainee (Physical Sciences - Hydrology)
The Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland (www.fs.usda.gov/mbr) are looking for student interns interested in watershed management. These Pathways Intern (Indefinite) positions are designed to provide students work experience and could potentially lead to a career with the USDA Forest Service! The initial work period is expected to be summer 2021. One or more GS-3 (~$12.25/hr), GS-4 (~$12.90/hr) or GS-5 (~$14.43/hr) positions may be filled in Laramie and/or Saratoga, Wyoming. This is a great opportunity to spend a summer outdoors and learn about watershed management in the US Forest Service.
These positions include field and office work. Job duties include a diverse range of surveys, inventory, monitoring, and restoration work. The restoration work can be physically demanding, including carrying heavy loads of matrials and working long hours with hand tools. Work requires the ability to hike, wade, lift, carry and use equipment in rugged terrain and in harsh mountain weather. The ability to work safely and in a team environment is necessary, including the ability to enjoy living in remote mountain or grassland settings. Prior watershed management experience is not required. Limited government housing may be available.
