COSA National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) Part-Time Position

Hi COSA community,

I work for Battelle on the NEON program and wanted to share an open position we currently have.

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is a continental-scale observation facility funded by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle. The NEON program is designed to collect long-term, open access ecological data to better understand how U.S. ecosystems are changing, from freshwater systems such as streams, rivers, and lakes to terrestrial systems spanning tropical forests to deserts to tundra ( We depend on our people to collect observational data and samples, to monitor automated instrumented systems that collect terrestrial and aquatic data, and to operate our airborne observation platform that captures remote sensing data of regional landscapes and vegetation.

Within NEON, we have several different job opportunities that range from temporary to full-time positions. Below, you can find our available positions available in Colorado and the links you’ll use to learn more and apply. You can find other open positions, in other states, on our website as well if you’re interested. Please reach out to my email with any questions!
