The following United States Office Of Personnel Management (USOPM) pages are linked and are slightly different from one another:
- USAJOBS - United States Office Of Personnel Management -- The US gov has tons of excellent positions related to life sciences and animals.

In the Fish and Wildlife Dept (Department of the Interior) many biological aids, wildlife management and field research technicians .
