Are you an ecological professional—whether a prospective graduate student, someone with a few years in the field, post-graduate, or a faculty member/NGO biologist—looking to build your resume or simply get involved in our research programs in Yellowstone? Are you interested in bridging the gap between institutionalized education and real-world experience with nature? With our wealth of data, we have a variety of collaborative opportunities available for ecologists and conservationists across the career spectrum. We need graduate students to analyze these datasets for their theses and dissertations at both in-state and out-of- state instituitions. We also need post-graduate students who can work on analyses alongside us in the field and in our lab to gain professional and personal experiences while we provide housing, equipment, and per diem. And we need concerned citizens with expert skills who can apply their knowledge and experiences gained over long careers to important issues around the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. If you can contribute your time, knowledge, and experience—be that at our lab in Bozeman, out in the field around Yellowstone, or remotely from wherever you are—please contact us about opportunities to collaborate with YERC.collaborate
Are you passionate about wildlife and wild places, and want to experience for yourself not only nature but also science in action? There are often times when we can use an extra hand around the office or in the field, not necessarily for tasks requiring professional ecology training but that do require attention to detail, a good attitude and work ethic, and a willingness to get involved and get your hands dirty, as well as the variety of unique skills and experiences available in the workforce beyond ecologists. We need office professionals who can help with paperwork, bookkeeping, data management, and other tasks at our headquarters in Bozeman. We need hardy, outdoorsy types to join our field crews to help carry equipment to and from remote sites as well as provide an extra set of eyes and ears alert to approaching animals and changing weather. And we need handy workers who can diagnose a leaky pipe, wrench on a snowmobile engine, or help us with other equipment maintenance tasks at our Cooke City field station. If you have always wanted to experience research and Yellowstone and can contribute even a few days to our current projects, please contact us about opportunities to volunteer with YERC.volunteer
Are you looking for employment and does your idea of a "dream job" include working in the Yellowstone ecosystem on challenging issues? If so, then is the place to find employment opportunities here at YERC. From seasonal field technicians collecting data for one of our ongoing projects to full-time positions conducing analysis, writing publications, and managing and leading research teams out of Bozeman, we are periodically able to augment our staff with paid positions. Please check here for current job openings, and remember, even if there are no paid positions available, there are still resume-building, outside funding-leveraging, foot-in- the-door opportunities to collaborate and volunteer with YERC. And for undergraduate students at Montana State University—especially, but not limited to, students in the natural sciences and computer sciences departments—at the beginning of the semester check with the school's work- study program to see if we are looking for students to work flexible hours here at YERC around their class schedules. Whether as a collaborator, a volunteer, or an employee, there are many opportunities for you to get involved with YERC.employment
