Last Dispatch: RA opportunity, Trout Unlimited Intern

Last Dispatch for the semester and for me as I'm leaving UAS on to mossier meadows. This weblog will still be maintained by Sanjay Pyare and Eran Hood so send them your opportunities.


I am looking for a undergraduate research assistant for this summer to work with me on two projects.

1.Explore development of Best Management Practices for cruise tourism in Arctic, Alaska

2.Summarize the national and international legal and regulatory frameworks for management of North Pacific fisheries

Duties will include online and library research and writing.

This position will run from early May through late August for up to 40 hrs/week. This position pays $9.51 to $13.55 per hour depending on qualification. Please encourage interested students to contact me and to apply to:

Trout Unlimited is hiring for a solid intern to work primarily on the Salmon Beyond Borders campaign this summer.

Ideally, we’re hoping for someone who has an interest in conservation, a versatile skill-set (someone who is comfortable managing a Facebook page and comfortable talking to crusty old fishermen), and wants the experience of working on a campaign.  

Additionally, the Alaska Center for the Environment (ACE), is hiring canvassers for their summer program.  These folks will work throughout Southeast Alaska, canvassing on behalf of the Salmon Beyond Borders Campaign and / or the Tongass 77 Campaign in an effort enhance community engagement.  I checked with ACE yesterday, and I believe they still need to hire 4 people.    

Please let me know if you have students that may be qualified / interested – I’ve been in touch with some – and await their letters of interest – but in the meantime, I thought I’d reach out to faculty as well.
