IAE SW seeks to hire a Seed Collection Crew Leader for the 2020 seed collection season (June 1st - August 14th with the possibility of extension). The Seed Collection Crew Leader will work closely with IAE staff, botanists from the US Forest Service, and partner teams from the NM Bureau of Land Management to collect seed from native plants for the Southwest Seed Partnership. They will be responsible for leading a two-person native seed collection crew based out of Santa Fe, NM.

The crew will split their time between three National Forests— the Santa Fe NF, the Cibola NF and the Carson NF. The workweek will be four 10-hour days, Monday through Thursday. Mondays will be spent in the office or seed studio, and the rest of the week will be spent in the field, with some overnight camping possible. The crew will be based out of the IAE SW office in Santa Fe, and crew members will travel to field sites in an IAE SW vehicle.

Most collection sites for this Northern NM team are day trips and relatively close to Santa Fe, but a large amount of time is spent traveling to known and new collection sites. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in a large collaborative effort supporting the first critical step of acquiring wild plant materials for use in seed increase projects, research, and restoration.
