ICF is currently seeking On-Call (temporary) Field Biologists to join our team for an infrastructure project located between Albuquerque New Mexico and Lubbock Texas.

About On-Call Employment with ICF International
Given the seasonal or project-specific nature of our environmental work, ICF often hires environmental professionals as "On-Call" employees. On-Call employees are scheduled for work hours as they become available (we usually schedule work hours a few weeks ahead of time), and each on-call employee is free to accept or refuse the hours assigned to them in a given week. On-Call employees may work concurrent projects outside of their ICF assignment (along as their outside work does not create a conflict of interest with the work they do for ICF).

Job Description

Previous experience conducting surveys, compliance monitoring, and ability to work in remote areas is desired. Candidates must have good communication skills, work with construction contractors, ability to write clearly, prepare field data forms. Work assignments generally include working 32-60 hours a week.

The work rotation would continue until the project completion, estimated to be the end of December.
