Greetings Dr. Allen:
I have a vacant Environmental Scientist (ES) position on the Native Fishes (a.k.a. Delta Smelt) Project, with a final filing date March 19, 2014.
The selected ES will be co-leading three annual field surveys (Smelt Larva Survey, 20-mm Survey, and Spring Kodiak Trawl Survey) that determine the abundance and distribution of Delta Smelt and Longfin Smelt. These surveys can provide new fishery biologists the foundations of field sampling techniques and opportunities for complex data analysis and publication for those candidates who have advanced skills and experience.
Please pass this information on to all who may be interested. Candidates should take the ES exam (online, continuous filing) before the final filing date and submit an application per the instructions. Applications are sent to our Napa office and forwarded to me, but if there are any questions about the position, please contact me.
Here is the link to the ES Exam Bulletin: https://jobs.ca.gov/JOBSGEN/4PB09.PDF
If someone took the State of California ES exam before April 2014, they will need to take it again, as the previous list was abolished in April and scores were not transferred to the new list. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) no longer uses the Fishery and Marine Biologist series, so anyone interested in fishery or marine biologist jobs with CDFW should take the ES exam.
Appreciate your help with passing this announcement to interested candidates.
