University of Wyoming Extension Technician Job Opportunity (Temporary) 

  • Location: Cheyenne, WY (remote work possible) 

  • Description: I am seeking to hire an undergraduate student for a temporary opportunity. This project is part of a collaborative effort to assess horn fly infestations on beef steers in partnership with the University of Wyoming and USDA. Students will assess digital images of cattle, both face and side profiles of the body, and count flies on animals. Data will be uploaded in an excel database. The work requires the ability to focus, finish tedious tasks, manage a portfolio of images, manage spreadsheets, and communicate with both UW and USDA researchers. The work can be completed remotely and a laptop computer can be provided if needed. Pay rate is $12 per hour.
