Radio tracking of eight Ozark pocket gophers will be conducted daily at five sites in Izard Co. to assess juvenile dispersal during fall and early winter. To radio tag individuals, box trapping will be conducted at the beginning of the season. As a supplement to radio tracking, drift fences and pitfall traps will be checked twice daily (approximately 1 hour daily). Any newly trapped individual will be processed and released from pitfall traps. Radio tracking will take approximately 1-2 hours most days and will require walking through fields potentially with cattle. Housing provided.


  • Applicants should have field work experience and a background in biology or environmental studies. Previous radio-tracking experience is preferred but not required.
