The following hyperlinks below will take you directly to the USA Jobs website search for currently open jobs listed under those position titles.

Natural Resources Specialist

Natural Resource Specialist – Soil resource specialists with The Bureau of Land Management and Natural Resource Conservation Service are often listed in this job series.

Soil Conservationists – This job series is common for soil scientists working with the Natural Resource Conservation Service.

Biological Science Technician – These positions are often how seasonal opportunities in soil science across the BLM and USFS are advertised. They do require more diligent searching in their job descriptions to find out which are soils-specific, as everything from wildlife biology to hydrology can be the focus of these positions.

Federal Employment Outreach

Federal positions will often have an “outreach” period where interested applicants can send their resume to and communicate directly with hiring managers for specific jobs before they are advertised on USA Jobs. This is a great opportunity to ensure you stand out as an applicant and to get information about the specific position or duty locations, which is not always very apparent on USA Jobs.
