The Rudgers & Whitney Labs at the University of New Mexico are looking for a technician, effective immediately (position open until filled). Duties will include work in both field and laboratory settings on NSF-funded projects examining the ecology and evolution of plants, plant-animal and plant-microbe interactions. Candidates should have B.A./B.S. in biology (or related field) and some hands-on field and/or lab experience. Training will be provided, but experience with DNA techniques (PCR, sequencing), plant care and greenhouse maintenance, plant identification and vegetation sampling, insect identification, research experience in arid systems, and/or microbial methods is a bonus. The position is full-time and term-limited (12-24 months). This position would be an excellent fit for someone planning on graduate study in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, as there will be the opportunity to gain experience in a number of research areas and to co-author papers.


This is a benefits eligible position. The University of New Mexico provides a comprehensive package of benefits including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance. In addition, UNM offers educational benefits through the tuition remission and dependent education programs. See the Prospective Employee page for a more complete explanation of UNM benefits.

Minimum Qualifications: Completed degree(s) from an accredited institution that are above the minimum education requirement may be substituted for experience on a year for year basis. Successful completion of at least 60 college-level credit hours; at least 1 year of experience that is directly related to the duties and responsibilities specified.

Preferred Qualifications: B.A./B.S. in Biology (or related field) and some hands-on field and/or lab experience; experience with DNA techniques (PCR, sequencing), plant care and greenhouse maintenance, grass identification and vegetation sampling, research experience in arid systems, and/or microbial methods (endophytic and mycorrhizal fungi, biological soil crusts) would make the candidate more competitive
