Job opening: Wilderness Ranger at the Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area on Admiralty Island, Tongass NF, Alaska

Admiralty Island National Monument will soon be advertising a position to work at the world-class Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area on the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska. This single position will be advertised through three different announcements and filled with a candidate from one of the applicant pools.

This is a great opportunity for students interested in joining a progressive wilderness program on Admiralty Island – a National Monument, designated wilderness, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to one of the densest brown bear populations in the world. Students should apply through thePathways Student Intern (Recreation) GS-0499-4/5 announcement. While the student intern completes their studies, the summer work schedule will occur around their school schedule (e.g June to August). Upon successful completion of education degree requirements, on-the-job training and meeting OPM qualifications, the position will non-competitively convert to a 13/13 permanent seasonal GS-0462-5 Forestry Technician (Wilderness) position.

Anyone interested is encouraged to complete the attached Outreach Response Form. Respondents will be notified via email when the vacancy announcement becomes available. You will still need to apply for the job separately. Interested applicants must reply to the attached outreach by September 19, 2014.

Please forward this outreach notice to anyone who may be interested.
