The successful candidate will join a team of geologists with diverse backgrounds who share a love of fieldwork and geologic mapping in Montana, a state renowned for its complicated geology with a stunning backdrop of rugged mountains, pristine river valleys, and expansive plains. The position may entail several weeks of field mapping annually, working alone or with other geologists in remote areas of Montana. The successful candidate will work with MBMG’s geologists, GIS specialists, cartographers, and laboratory technicians to produce and publish geologic maps, analytical data, and associated databases. The candidate will participate in writing proposals, managing projects, disseminating geologic information, and interacting with MBMG’s stakeholders, including the public, members of industry, and the research community.
