STATUS: Seasonal, 40 hrs/week.  Typically March through October, but this position may be extended to accommodate the needs of the District.

 

The Lake County Vector Control District (LCVCD) is an independent special district that serves all of Lake County.  In addition to mosquito and mosquito-borne disease surveillance and control, the District also conducts regular surveillance for ticks and tick-borne diseases, the nuisance midge Chaoborus astictopus (Clear Lake Gnat), and surveillance and control for various Culicoides species.  The District responds as needed to other vectors and vector-borne diseases that occur within the county.  In order to address the variety of unusual vectors and vector situations that occur within its boundaries, the LCVCD maintains a strong research program and regularly presents its findings at state and national conferences and in journals.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This position will report to work at the district office in Lakeport each day.  Work area may change from day to day depending on need, and be anywhere in Lake County.  The internship is not a tenure-track appointment, and interns are selected on the basis that the working/learning experience at LCVCD will contribute to the attainment of their career goals in the natural sciences.  The intern will gain practical experience in the field of public health vector surveillance and control, which should serve as a stepping stone for career advancement.  There may be opportunities to collaborate on publications and/or presentations for state or national conferences.

Experience in biology laboratory and/or fieldwork are highly desirable.  College coursework in biological sciences required.  A bachelor’s degree and/or previous laboratory experience preferred but not required.  The position requires a valid California driver’s license and employees must be insurable with the District’s insurance carrier using the accepted guidelines of the insurance provider.
