The National Park Service may be seeking to fill two full-time seasonal biological technician positions for next summer (approximately May-September 2021) at Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, if funding allows. Application materials are found at the USA Jobs links below.  Follow the instructions carefully, and include a cover letter if at all possible. To receive consideration, the complete application package must be submitted by 11:59 PM (EST) on Friday, 11/20/2020. Late applications will not be accepted and we do not accept hardcopy or email application packages.

Humpback Whale Population Monitoring (1 position): This GS-06 or GS-07 position is primarily responsible for data entry and analysis, (e.g., MS Access databases, labeling digital images), but will also assist Park whale biologists in conducting boat-based surveys of Glacier Bay and Icy Strait once per week, to document the distribution, behavior, feeding ecology, and life histories of individually-identified humpback whales. This person also assists with marine mammal stranding response and helps maintain a 45-foot humpback whale skeleton exhibit. This seasonal position will be hired at the GS-06 or GS-07 level depending on the applicant's education and work experience. If interested in being considered for both the GS-06 and the GS-07 positions, you must submit a separate application for each. For more information, please contact Chris_Gabriele at nps.gov

Marine Mammal Shipboard Observer (1 position):  This GS-07 position is based out of Bartlett Cove, Alaska (Glacier Bay National Park) focused on marine mammal surveys.  The position is part of an effort that, since 2006, has placed observers on large cruise ships to record the frequency and proximity of surfacing events of humpback whale around the ships as they transit through Glacier Bay National Park.  Selectee will conduct ship-based surveys up to 4 times per week, by standing at the bow for long periods in all weather conditions using rangefinder binoculars and GPS units.  Familiarity with GPS and database software including ArcGIS is strongly encouraged.  For more information, please contact Scott_Gende at nps.gov

Biological Science Technician (Wildlife) GS-0404-07
