Riparian Botanists

Expiration Date: 

The University of Montana invites applications for two Riparian Botanists for the Ecological Mapping, Monitoring and Analysis (EMMA) group at the O’Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West. Riparian Botnaists will participate in seasonal work implementing the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Riparian and Wetland Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) and Multiple Indicator Monitoring (MIM) protocols in Salmon, Idaho or Cody, WY. These protocols focus on collecting standardized inventory and monitoring data to determine condition and trends of target resources on BLM lands in the Western U.S.

Riparian Botanists will work in a team of 3, under the leadership of a Crew Lead, to collect quantitative vegetation data using line-point-intercept, as well as detailed soils, hydrology, water quality, and surrounding land use data. Successful candidates will be trained by Wetland Ecologists from the Colorado Natural Heritage Program and the BLM’s National Operations Center to properly implement data collection procedures.
