ICF is currently seeking On-Call (Temporary) Fisheries and Aquatic Biologists/Technicians to be based out of our offices in San Francisco or Sacramento. One position is primarily field-based, requiring extensive hours working on a boat in the upper San Francisco Estuary. Responsibilities will include assisting ICF Biologists with field collections of water quality, phytoplankton, zooplankton, macrocrustaceans, and fish in the upper San Francisco Estuary. The position will also include assisting ICF biologists in tagging fish with PIT tags and acoustic transmitters and data analysis of acoustic telemetry data. The second position involves laboratory work, requiring extensive hours in the lab sorting and identifying zooplankton and macroinvertebrates. The third position will involve assisting ICF scientists with analyzing field data, including sonar bioacoustics data, acoustic telemetry data, and fish/invertebrate data. All three positions could involve assisting ICF biologists on regulatory or permitting documents, including Section 7 consultations, NEPA, and CEQA documents. Work assignments would include working up to 25-40 hours a week depending on availability.
About On-Call Employment with ICF
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).
