The Biodiversity Research Lab at Virginia Commonwealth University seeks a Senior Research Technician for Proyecto ALTA (Altitudinal Transects across the Americas) beginning March 2022 (flexible start date) based in Richmond, Virginia. Proyecto ALTA is a distributed and coordinated long-term mountain biodiversity monitoring program which provides baseline data for tracking shifting species distributions. A primary goal of ALTA is to develop and deploy low-cost solutions for biodiversity monitoring and build strategies for diverse outreach and engagement.
The Senior Research Technician will be responsible for planning, organizing, and conducting biodiversity monitoring across temperate (Virginia and Tennessee) and tropical (Puerto Rico and Costa Rica) forests and potentially other locations in the future. This project will require the Senior Research Technician to travel for fieldwork, with laboratory work conducted primarily in Richmond, VA.
