The UW Libraries is offering a series of classes designed to help students involved in data-intensive research learn how to manage and protect their data, as well as consider other issues such as data sharing and reuse. All disciplines are welcome, as are all student levels.

I wanted to share with you the upcoming temporary seasonal jobs and the few permanent fire jobs that we have available right now on the Sawtooth National Forest. Jobs range from fisheries, to wildlife, wilderness to trails, river patrol to fire prevention, noxious weeds eradication to helitack. Most jobs are entry level and do offer on the job training. Almost all jobs provide opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, and offer some sort of local or government housing (pending availability). Please share this any way you see fit with others that may be interested as well. Here is a link to our jobs page on our forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/sawtooth/about-forest/jobs
The reason that you have been contacted for this is because we are looking for outgoing, bright, and talented people to be a apart of the Sawtooth National Forest. It is my belief that you may know quite a few who are looking for some meaningful work to either compliment their education or help pay for school.
