A position in Marion County. These are good positions and often hard to fill with the right people. This was sent by Matt Puntney, an OSU-Cascades grad that is working in one of these positions now. There is a soils education component required, but don't let that stop you from applying - they may be willing to hire with the expectation that you get one of those courses after you are working - sometimes by a workshop like the one I offer on soil morphology in the summer in Corvallis.
