Opening New Doors

Student field crew members work full time over summer, with the potential to work part time during the school year in the lab. The student lab/field crew members support our restoration ecology research projects in many ways, including collecting data in the field, processing of fuels and plant samples, performing data entry, plant identification, and other tasks as needed. Hiring for these positions typically occurs early Spring. CFRI is not currently hiring for these positions, but please contact  Savannah Lehnert at savannah.lehnert@colostate.edu with questions regarding future opportunities.
