The Flagstaff CR team conducts high-quality fieldwork throughout northern Arizona in a variety of environments and weather conditions. The work is demanding, exhausting, and rewarding. Fieldwork will require someone who is adaptable, level-headed, willing to learn, and, above all, wants to work with some of the best folks in the business!

Work in the office or laboratory is expected to be minimal.
