This position serves as a technical advisor in aquatic biology within the Division of Integrated Resources at Crater Lake National Park and plays an integral role in long-term limnological monitoring and research of Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the U.S. and one of the clearest lakes in the world. The limnology program at Crater Lake is one of the longest running monitoring and research studies of a deep-water lake and includes many operational crossovers with the field of oceanography because of lake depth. This position will manage daily field operations of the limnology program and may also assist with restoration and monitoring of stream fisheries within the park. Job duties include motorboat operation and the operation of research vessel cranes and winches, as well as the development and implementation of aquatic resource management, monitoring and research projects. SCUBA dive operations may be possible depending on training. The incumbent will be expected to work in a team environment with professional biologists and seasonal technicians to protect, restore, and manage aquatic resources to meet park needs and mandates. The incumbent will be expected to increase independent program responsibilities as time progresses, ensuring they are adequately prepared for the responsibility of the position at the full performance level.

Duties will be developmental in nature when filled below the full performance level.
