by Ivara J. Roth on February 21, 2019
         The Campbell lab at the University of California at Irvine (  is seeking a field research assistant to join our team in plant evolutionary ecology for summer 2019. The work will be based at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory ( in Colorado. The assistant will help with data collection of vegetative, physiological, and floral traits for long-term projects. These projects are aimed at testing whether plant populations can adapt quickly enough to environmental change to avoid extinction. The fieldwork can be strenuous and sometimes involves extensive hiking at high elevations and work during inclement weather. In addition to field and laboratory work, the assistant is expected to be an active participant in the research community. Applicants should have some college level coursework in ecology. Those with prior laboratory or fieldwork experience with plants are especially encouraged to apply. The full-time position is available from early June to the end of August, with exact start and end dates flexible. Compensation includes station fees and housing at RMBL, and a salary.
          To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for two references by March 1, 2019. Applications, or requests for more information, should be directed to Dr. Diane Campbell (
