The City's water conservation program is recruiting for a part-time Seasonal Water Conservation Technician (flyer attached). I thought it might be an excellent opportunity for a local college student interested in natural resources. The position is generally 10-20 hours per week and runs April through September. The primary responsibilities will be to conduct inspections of residential landscape irrigation systems in an effort to reduce outdoor water use in Bend. The position will be employed through Express Personnel Services and be contracted to the City of Bend. Please let me know if you have any questions. Please feel free to share as appropriate.
Please post/distribute this job vacancy to those who may be interested. The Huron-Manistee National Forests plans to fill a temporary soil scientist position this coming field season. Duty station is Cadillac, Michigan. This is a not to exceed 1039 hours/year position (plus 685 training hours in the first year and 80 hours in each subsequent year). Successful candidates may be rehired in subsequent years without competition. I am using a list of university contacts that is a couple years old for this outreach. If you are not the person to whom this should be sent, could you please give us the contact information for the appropriate person. Thank you.

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.
