South Carolina. Anticipated research would require observers to fly up to

permitting, and observers must be willing to work weekends and holidays
during the survey period. Observers will be required to participate in
aviation and marine safety and survival training.

provided at no cost to the observers for the duration of the project. These
positions are contingent upon funding.
