The duty station for the positions may be in Cheyenne, Laramie, Cody, Buffalo, or Jackson. The positions range in duration from 5-7 months, between June and November.

Operation of 4wd vehicles and towing trailers will be required. Must have a valid driver’s license.

Preference will be given to those seeking a career in fisheries and who submit a cover letter and resume in addition to their online state application.

Separate cover letters and resumes must be submitted for fisheries positions and aquatic habitat positions. Also indicate any of the work locations that you would not consider.
