or a summer job? Maybe in Europe? Ideally an adventurous job? Perhaps involving polar bears? Well, look no further. Details follow . . .
A good set of lungs is exactly what the government of
N’s orway is looking f Svalbard Islands or this summer. Researchers on these remote N orwegian islands are on the hunt f or a talented polar bear spotter who can stand guard while scientists are doing projects in the region.
Successful candidates f
or the gig need to have good intruder-spotting skills, experiences w orking in the great outdo ors, and an excellent ability to handle firearms. But don’t w orry: The govern or’s office says the polar bear spotter won’t need to use the gun “as long as they have a loud voice” that can scare off any bears.
The job starts on July 8 and will last three weeks.
The downside: That might not be enough time to adjust to the Arctic wilderness. The
Svalbard Islands are halfway between and the N N orway orth Pole. Relatively little precipitation falls on the islands, but it does get foggy. The weather can shift very quickly. In the summer, the average temperature is around 43 degrees.
