Permanent Position
Research Fishery

The Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC), a research
center of the U.S. Geological Survey, is advertising to all sources a
research fishery biologist position at its facility in La Crosse,
Wisconsin. The position may be filled as a GS 12 fishery biologist
(Salary range $54,315–70,605, depending upon qualifications). The job
announcement appears at http://www.usajobs.opm.gov/. General information
on applying for federal jobs can be found at http://federaljobs.net.

The researcher is expected to be the principal scientist in UMESC’s
efforts to develop diverse research approaches to invasive aquatic
species in both the Great Lakes drainage basin and in the Mississippi
River drainage basin. Examples of general research approaches include
integrated and multi-agency field and laboratory efforts to address the
ecological effects of invasive aquatic species to aquatic environments
in the referenced geographical regions. The researcher also develops and
tests possible approaches to mitigating those effects through an array
of potential integrated pest management tools. The incumbent must
demonstrate ability as a mature, competent, and productive researcher
with the ability to carry out invasive species research from conception
to data assembly to analysis and ultimately to publication.

Research is expected to result in authorship of scientific papers in
peer-reviewed scientific journals. The incumbent will present result of
research at scientific meetings, interagency meetings with cooperators,
and before the general public. The UMESC research program supports the
biological science needs of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, (USFWS),
the National Park Service, and other bureaus of the Department of the
Interior. The Center has a staff with specialists in invertebrate and
fish ecology, wildlife ecology, botany and plant ecology, animal
physiology, analytical chemistry, zoology, ecotoxicology of
environmental contaminants, pharmacology, statistics, microbiology,
geographic information systems, computer science, and information
transfer. Research involves a number of approaches, including
manipulative experiments, descriptive studies, long-term resource
monitoring, modeling, and status and trends analysis. Experimental work
is conducted at several spatial scales, including whole ecosystems,
field enclosures, experimental ponds, laboratory microcosm, and the
organism and cellular levels. UMESC has a branch structure for staff
supervision and a programmatic team structure that facilitates research
studies by multidisciplinary staff.

La Crosse, Wisconsin, provides an excellent small city quality of life
in a scenic area rich in culture and history. Education, health care,
and other employment opportunities are excellent. The area offers land
and water recreational activities during all seasons of the year. Urban
and rural real estate are affordable.
