Field Research Assistant Position

Snake Valley is a remote and beautiful desert valley located on the Utah/Nevada border approximately 90 miles west of Delta, UT. We are currently seeking a field assistant for the 2011 field season. Duties will include sampling and describing soil and vegetation characteristics. The successful applicant should have some background in soil description, but training will be given as needed. A background in range plant identification would also be helpful, but not necessary.

As Snake Valley is a remote location, the successful applicant must be honest and reliable and be willing to work alongside a current PhD student in high heat and dusty conditions. Additionally, the successful applicant must be willing to camp for at least 4 days/week and have a valid driver’s license. Travel to and from Logan (or other areas along the Wasatch front) will be provided. Pay is dependent upon experience, but will be competitive.
All interested parties are urged to contact Colby Brungard ( as soon as possible.
