About On-Call Employment with ICF

Given the seasonal or project-specific nature of our environmental work, ICF hires environmental professionals through “On-Call” contracts. Those who excel on our projects are sometimes offered full time employment on the Fish and Aquatic Science Team. On-Call employees are scheduled for work hours as they become available (we usually schedule work hours a few weeks ahead of time), and each on-call employee can accept or refuse the hours assigned to them in a given week. On-Call employees may work concurrent projects outside of their ICF assignment along as their outside work does not create a conflict of interest with work they do for ICF.

  • B.S. in Biology, or 1 year of field experience
  • Experience conducting fieldwork, and ability to work outdoors for weeks at a time with long hours on the field site.
