We are hiring 4 to 10 field technicians to work at the Teakettle Experimental 
Forest. Teakettle is a 1300 ha old-growth, mixed-conifer forest 80 km east of 
Fresno, CA at 2200 m elevation in the Sierra Nevada. The forest is comprised of 
both burned and unburned experimental plots and a second entry prescribed burn 
was implemented in the fall of 2017. Duties will include, but are not limited 
to mapping forest structure using a surveyor’s total station, basic tree 
measurements, fuel surveys and assisting visiting scientists with their 
projects as needed. These projects may include: basic soils work (coring, soil 
moisture, etc.), seedling inventories, understory plant surveys, and tree 
coring. Desired skills include plant identification, use of a total station, 
basic knowledge of tree measurements, and previous experience working as a 
crewmember. The facilities at Teakettle are rustic due to the remote location 
of the station. The cabin has solar power, bathrooms, a kitchen and common 
space; individuals will spend the summer sleeping in tents. The nearest town 
for supplies is Shaver Lake, CA, approximately a one hour drive from the field 

The pay rate is $13.95/hr and crewmembers will work four 10-hour days each 
week. The field season will run 12 weeks from the middle of June to the 
beginning of September. The official start date will be determined in late
