Part-time work, flexible work hours!
In the upcoming year, we’re looking for people to join our Agri-Model team as Research Assistants to survey farmers in select watershed areas (Exeter, Port Hope, Tilsonburg). We will be asking farmers about their crop rotation, fertility and tillage programs as well as environmental features on their property. Research Assistants will be responsible for meeting with farmers, administering the survey (approx 1 hour), recording and inputting data and keeping all information confidential. The data will be used to update provincial agricultural models and provide a better understanding how farming has progressed over the last decades.
Research Assistants will receive paid training and be compensated $200 for each interview. Successful applicants will be friendly and motivated self-starters, be flexible to work around farmers’ hours, reside in the area, have access to a vehicle and have a strong background in agriculture and agronomy. CCA or P.Ag designation is a bonus, but not essential.
