Alluvion Biological Consulting provides solutions to environmental and natural resource management challenges. We employ a team of highly trained biologists, ecologists, and environmental scientists to offer a wide array of services.

At Alluvion, we place special emphasis on devoting personal attention to each project. Our staff does not simply observe and report; we actively engage and communicate with our clients, their construction personnel, and relevant regulatory agencies. Through this approach, we are able to ensure quality services while reducing costly redundancies and delays.
Alluvion Biological Consulting is a certified DBE/MBE operating throughout the state of California.

THE POSITION: We have immediate openings for a seasonal on-call biologist.

Applicants should have an academic background in biology or environmental science ( Bachelors degree at minimum), field experience, a general knowledge of California ecology, and experience in ecological consulting in California. Technical writing ability and good communication skills are a must. This position will sometimes require navigating rugged terrain safely and working alone in a variety of weather conditions. It may also require occasional overnight travel and weekend work.

DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS: Successful applicants should meet the following requirements:
Experience identifying plant and wildlife species in the field
A background in ecology or wildlife management and broad knowledge of the biology of Californias ecosystems
The ability to prepare or assist with preparing CEQA/NEPA documents, biological assessments, wildlife inventories, and or vegetation inventories
