We're looking for someone with a good grasp of boreal tree species, a high level of physical fitness for navigating rugged terrains, and a positive attitude even during long days in various weather conditions. Camping in the backcountry is part of the gig, so experience in that area is a plus.

We especially value candidates who bring additional experience in handling field logistics, particularly in remote settings. If you're someone with a strong background in the sciences and a knack for navigating logistical challenges in the field, you might be the perfect fit for our team.

Before joining our team, candidates are required to provide proof of a valid driver's license.
