Duties: Supported by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), The Great Basin Institute is recruiting an experienced individual to serve as Vegetation/Habitat Assessment Field Lead. The overall objective of this habitat assessment effort is to perform detailed vegetation and site data collection within population management units of the genetically distinct Bi-State Sage Grouse located along the western Nevada border where habitat restoration projects will be undertaken or are currently underway. Restoration project sites are located in Wyoming sagebrush, pinyon-juniper woodlands and mountain sagebrush communities and are focused on wildlife habitat including Sage Grouse (endangered species candidate), Mule deer, and a variety of non-game species. The vegetation and site data are used to help guide proper treatment design and to provide a baseline data set against which treatment effects may be measured. Availability of this position is pending a funding decision. This position will play a vital role in facilitating the effective and efficient collection of monitoring data. General field duties include walking long distances over uneven and sometimes steep terrain, collecting GPS points of sampling plots and other plot-specific data, observing wildlife, identifying vegetative demographics and distribution, and taking photo-points. Sampling vegetation structure and composition using the Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) methodology will be the principle focus of field data collection, resulting in estimates for foliar cover, canopy gap, herbaceous and woody density, and plant species richness. AIM field data will be entered into the electronic Database for Inventory, Monitoring and Assessment (DIMA).

Office tasks include data organization, processing and QA/QC; post-processing GPS points; utilizing GIS to edit polygons as well as point and line data; and creating reports with GIS maps, pictures and concise field notes. This position may require pre-season travel to and from field sites with occasional camping in order to ground truth transect start points and to ensure that all transects are successfully completed during the field season, and may require long hours including early mornings and weekends. The timeframe for field data collection will generally be 8 days on (Wed-Wed) – for travel to sampling region, field sampling and on-site camping, and return to GBI/NDOW in Reno – followed by 6 days off (Thu-Tue). Time spent training during the beginning of the field season and post-season office work involving data QA/QC and report writing will follow a typical Mon-Fri schedule. The position will be based out of GBI’s Reno, NV office and field work will be staged from the Nevada Department of Wildlife Reno office. Field sites are located through northern Nevada, and may require several hours to access. Terrain is typical of the Great Basin with wide, long valleys bordered by mountain ranges. Field conditions include hot, arid days with high exposure to the sun and nights with temperatures possibly dropping to near freezing at high elevations. Resources include big game habitat, Wilderness Study Areas, active grazing allotments, abandoned mine lands, historic and prehistoric cultural sites, and wild horse management areas.
