However, some weekend work and hours outside of a normal business day (early morning and late-evening) will be required. Weekly work schedules will not be standardized, and may be adjusted based on project needs and priorities. Duties for this position will include:Primary duties will include assisting with fish sampling, habitat and water quality monitoring, and maintenance of multiple rotary screw traps on the mainstem San Joaquin River downstream of Friant Dam.Interns will assist with fish husbandry, fish marking, and rotary screw trap efficiency testing (mark-capture experiments). This includes maintenance and repair of all equipment necessary for these duties.In addition to these primary duties, interns may be asked to participate in other fisheries monitoring activities on the San Joaquin River, which may require some minimal travel (< 2 hr) for short durations not to exceed two weeksParticipate in habitat management and monitoring Maintain accurate and detailed field records and enter data promptly and accuratelyOther duties as assignedQualifications: Applicants must have suitable education: equivalent to completion of two years of college with a minimum of 10 semester hours in biological or chemical sciences, or suitable experience: one year of experience studying or monitoring fish or wildlife populations and habitats.
