Have you ever wondered what’s it like to conduct research in the Arctic?  You 
don't have to wonder for long. I am offering a full-time temporary position 
located at Denali National Park, AK, in June, July, and August 2019. During 
this time, you would be backpacking and living on campgrounds at Denali. A 
stipend of $2,000, food and lodging will be provided, but you must cover your 
own transportation to the field site. As a technician, your duties will 
include, but are not limited to, the following: 

•       Conducting population surveys of arctic ground squirrels, including 
locating and indexing burrow networks and confirming presence or absence, 
•       Conducting vegetation assessments, and 
•       Maintaining good working relationships with other scientists, park 
liaison and visitors at Denali to support the goals of research.

The preferred candidate is dependable, curious, enthusiastic, doesn't mind 
working in physically taxing situations for long hours, and loves to be 
outdoors in rugged conditions. The ideal candidate will also have experience 

This fieldwork is part of the dissertation research of Nigel Golden 
(https://goo.gl/LhMedz), University of Massachusetts graduate student studying 
the impact of climate change on arctic ground squirrel activity. This research 
is part of a broad research program, led by Dr. Toni Lyn Morelli of the US 
Geological Survey’s Northeast Climate Science Center, to understand the impacts 
of climate change on wildlife.
