Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve is looking to hire four technicians to assist with the sprig prescribed burn program. These positions will begin in March and end around mid-May (the start and end dates are weather dependent). Of Cedar Creek's 5400 acres, about 900 acres are managed through prescribed burning. Our burns consist of oak savanna, prairie, restoration units, and experimental plots that are on some type of burning frequency.
Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve of the University of Minnesota has opportunities for students to work as plant community ecology interns, research field supervisors, ornithology technicians, and prescribed burn technicians. These positions all take place on the reserve located in East Bethel, MN. Many positions are available from June through August, but some technicians will be needed as early as March and some are needed through October. Positions are not mutually exclusive.
The Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve of the University of Minnesota has opportunities for students and recent graduates to work as plant community ecology interns. As a research intern, you will contribute to ongoing field experiments and interact with professors, post-docs, and graduate students. If you are an undergraduate or a newly graduated student with a background or interest in biology, ecology, environmental science, botany, soil science, or related field we encourage you to apply.
Cedar Creek research examines ecological processes occurring at the individual physiological level to the ecosystem level. The Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve itself is a nine square mile tract of land 35 miles north of the Twin Cities. Cedar Creek is endowed with a diverse mosaic of prairie, savanna, sedge meadows, bogs, open water, forests, and even abandoned agricultural fields. Its large size, great natural diversity, and uniform soil substrate make it ideal for ecosystem studies.
Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, a field station of the University of Minnesota, is looking for 4 personnel to assist in our spring prescribed burn program. The positions could start anywhere from March 6th to March 27th and end around mid-May (start and end dates are weather dependent). Hours are variable, especially on days we burn. There is the possibility of overtime on intense burn weeks. Housing is available to rent on-site. Pay is $11 per hour.
Cedar Creek research examines ecological processes occurring at the individual physiological level to the ecosystem level in response to (1) a variety of climate change scenarios including elevated CO2, increased temperature, increased nitrogen deposition, and altered precipitation patterns; (2) land management practices including prescribed burning and agricultural production; and (3) varied land use histories. Research is headed by a number of faculty from research institutions across the US.
