from Desert Fishes Council's listserve:

The Klamath Falls Fish and Wildlife Office has an opening for one technician to
be apart of our newest endangered fish program!

As a Biological Science Technician, you will provide technical support and
assistance to biologists by collecting and rearing wild-spawned Lost River and
shortnose suckers, which are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species
Act. This involves observing, monitoring, and recording a wide variety of basic
data on water quality, habitat and rearing conditions, and number and
distribution of species. The Sucker Assisted Rearing Program (SARP) is in its
first year of implementation and fulfills a conservation measure associated
with the Bureau of Reclamation's implementation of the Klamath Irrigation
Project. The program is expected to direct future research and augmentation
efforts. This position is paid with Reimbursable Funds.

Please note that this is not a hatchery position. SARP is a new, collect/rear
program that de-emphasizes the use of intensive fish culture methods.

At the GS-07 full performance level, the duties of this position will include:

Retrieve, enter, and clean data from water quality and other information
management systems, and use electronic databases (Access, SQL) to enter,
organize, and perform standard statistical analyses of data collected from fish
rearing, field, and laboratory projects.
Plan and carry out daily aquatic animal husbandry duties for Lost River and
shortnose suckers including fish collection; aquatic life support system
design; basic construction and plumbing tasks, troubleshooting, and
maintenance; fish feeding; culture of feed organisms; apply fish health
principles and basic treatments, etc.
Assist with design and implementation of fish rearing studies and field
research and monitoring, including spatiotemporal patterns of fish abundance,
gear type selectivity, and other projects related to experimental semi-natural
fish rearing.
Prepare segments of recurring data summaries and technical reports and assist
in preparing technical reports and publications.
Work closely with personnel from Federal, State, and Tribal entities in a
collaborative manner.
Provide work direction and guidance to lower graded technicians, volunteers, or
students in gathering field data and present informational or educational
programs to individuals, local organizations, and schools.
At the GS-05 and GS-06 levels, you will perform the same kind of duties as
described above, but under closer supervision and training will be provided for
progression towards the full performance level.
