Position Objectives:
In partnership with Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), GBI is recruiting one 
lead to serve as part of a soil sampling team (one lead and two technicians).  
The overall objective of this soil sampling effort is to collect data at 
locations where habitat restoration projects will be undertaken and at sites 
where restoration is underway.  Restoration project sites are located in 
Wyoming sagebrush, pinyon-juniper woodlands and mountain sagebrush communities 
across northern Nevada.  Restoration projects are focused on wildlife habitat 
including Sage Grouse, Mule deer, and a variety of other species.  Site 
locations include land managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. 
Forest Service, and private landowners.  Collected data are used to help guide 
proper treatment design and to provide a baseline data set against which 
treatment effects may be measured.  

General field duties include regular use of best practices for safety, carrying 
heavy equipment while walking long distances over uneven and sometimes steep 
terrain, collecting soil samples with a two-person motorized auger, and 
collecting GPS locations of sampling plots and other plot-specific data.  This 
position will require travel to and from field sites and extended field camping 
to ensure that all sampling objectives are fulfilled during the field season.  
Implementation may require long hours including early mornings and weekends.  
The timeframe for field data collection will generally be 8 days on and 6 days 
off. The schedule during start of season training will be 4 days on and 3 days
