The Big Island Invasive Species Committee (BIISC) is hiring! We are looking for an individual with good communication skills, some understanding of Hawaiian biota and the desire to engage in some rugged work protecting Hawaii Island from invasive species threats!
You’ll be working with a team to conducts field operations to target invasive alien species for control or eradication. Fieldwork can involve anything from reconnaissance and surveys to mechanical or chemical removal, and often you will be working in rough terrain- rain or shine – so a good attitude is a must! Fieldwork requires the ability to drive project vehicles both on and off road, work in and around helicopters, and handle pesticides as well as keeping accurate and detailed records of treatment and control work. This is a full-time position, mostly Monday-Friday.
Previous experience working as part of a field crew and the ability to operate a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit are a plus, as is previous experience doing outreach or otherwise working with the public, especially in a conservation-oriented program.
