Our 3-person Environmental Contaminants Branch within our 24-person Field 
Office has responsibilities for a wide diversity of challenging activities 
ranging from work on malformed frogs on our National Wildlife Refuges, to 
work on water quality and fish within our National Fish Habitat Action 
Plans, unlocking reasons behind population declines in some of our listed 
species, climate change, and evaluation and cleanup of Formerly Used 
Defense Sites (World War II, Cold War, and nuclear testing).  This 
position offers an opportunity to apply a broad suite of technical, 
analytical, and social skills in addressing environmental contaminant 
issues relative to fish and wildlife resources in south-central and 
western Alaska. We are seeing ever more issues involving water quality and 
habitat degradation and focus on assessing how activities ranging from 
local roads to the largest mines in North America will affect fish and 
wildlife resources and how/whether habitats affected by such activities 
can be restored, particularly in view of climate change.   Environmental 
Contaminants Program responsibilities include identifying and monitoring 
environmental contaminant levels, and evaluating their effects on fish and 
wildlife.  Program biologists also facilitate contaminant clean-up 
activities with an emphasis on designated resources of national concern 
and on National Wildlife Refuge lands.  Environmental Contaminants 
biologists develop partnerships and work with others to leverage our funds 
and effectiveness, and provide technical expertise and assistance to other 
Field Office branches and Service programs.  For additional information

Program, visit our website at 

Anchorage prides itself on being an all-season gateway to adventure and 
natural beauty.   Our office is minutes away from the 500,000-acre Chugach 
State Park, home to moose, brown and black bears, wolves, and lynx -- not 
to mention fabulous hiking, mountain bike and ski trails; and a few hours 
away from some of the most productive (Kenai River salmon) and spectacular 
(Denali National Park) places on the planet. 

With a population of 280,000, Anchorage also boasts an excellent school 
system, a diverse arts community, top notch hospitals, two universities, 
an international airport, a recently expanded museum, farmers' markets in 
summer, cross-country ski trails in the winter, and numerous other assets. 
 Temperatures typically range from 60 ? 70 degrees in summer with cooler 
nighttimes and early mornings.  Starting in September the temperatures 
start to drop and average highs in the winter are in the low 20s.  More 
information about Anchorage can be found at
