The Center for Integrated Research on the Environment (CIRE) offers a diverse program that calls for interested University of Montana students to apply for research or scholarly activities. These activities are funded through US Army Corps of Engineers task orders awarded to CIRE in the areas of natural and cultural resources. Examples of general topic areas encompassed within the CIRE task orders include, but are not exclusive to: endangered species and protection, invasive species management, artifact curation and/or restoration, military-tribal consultation, evaluation of cultural resources on military properties, to name a few. See the CIRE Projects page for more details.
CIRE is tentatively reviewing the potential position for a Cultural Resources Management specialist with extensive experience in NHRP recommendations and management, section 106/110 surveys and general archaeology experience. CIRE is also looking at the potential for a DOD liason position that has their finger on the pulse of the Department of Defense's environmental programs and would facilitate CIRE's participation in a wider variety of programs and tasks. Ideally, this person would have spent a great deal of time working with the DOD, in environmental programs.
If you think that you may have these types of skillsets, please contact the CIRE Office for further details.
