Colorado State University is Hiring Data Collectors for Select Summer Dates- Apply by May 10

The Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands at Colorado State University (CEMML - CSU) is seeking qualified candidates to collect data for Recreational Boater Surveys. Please see job details below and feel free to share:
Selected data collectors will be required to complete two days of training and three full days of data collection (including two Sundays and one Federal holiday). It is estimated that data collectors will be required to work approximately 48 hours over the course of the project. However, data collection is contingent on lake and weather conditions which means scheduled sampling days may be canceled or postponed. Multiple potential sampling dates are scheduled to accommodate this uncertainty.
Candidates must be available for all potential sampling days and preferably within the general area of Lewisville Lake and Joe Pool Lake, Texas, since the position does NOT cover travel, transportation or lodging.
  • Training: Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. Candidates must be available to attend training (location TBD).
  • Potential Sampling Days: Monday, May 27, Sunday, June 9, Sunday, June 16, Sunday, June 23, Sunday, June 30, Thursday, July 4, Sunday, July 7, and Sunday, July 14. Candidates must be available for all potential sampling days; however, data collection will only take place on three occasions.
  • Transportation: Candidates must be able to ensure their own transportation to training and sampling locations. Applicants may indicate if assignment to either Lewisville Lake or Joe Pool Lake is preferred.
  • Ability: Candidates must be physically able to be continually active while moving between and around assigned locations quickly for up to 10-hours while working outdoors in summer conditions.
Experience: Candidates should have experience conducting field research, implementing surveys, and/or have completed coursework in statistics, data collection, and/or quantitative research.
Desired Skills: Attention to detail, strong communication skills, ability to follow instructions, positive-attitude, punctuality, adaptability, critical thinking, and ability to collect precise and accurate data.
Compensation is a fixed stipend of $850. Data collectors will be compensated in full following the completion of all required data collection. An additional sum will be awarded to data collectors who are able to provide transportation for themselves and team members between sampling locations.
About the Project:
Outdoor recreation is one of the most common ways people experience the natural world. Understanding current recreational use and visitor experiences is critical for effective resource management and to provide for safe and positive recreational experiences into the future. Researchers from Colorado State University (CSU) will be conducting a Recreational Boater Survey at Lewisville Lake and Joe Pool Lake during the summer of 2019. This project is a collaboration between CSU, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and partners affiliated with Lewisville and Joe Pool Lakes.
How to Apply:
Please e-mail your resume and a statement of qualifications addressing each requirement and describing why you are interested in this opportunity to before May 10, 2019.

Please indicate if you are capable and willing to provide transportation for you and your team between sampling locations with your personal vehicle (additional compensation is available for selected drivers).
