CBS Conservatory Assistant Position

The CBS Conservatory is looking to hire a Conservatory Assistant to begin immediately.​ Conservatory assistantships are available only to students with the positions running for 10 hours per week for $10/hour. CA's are the primary waterers for the Conservatory's vast collection of diverse plant species. Watering is very important, as each plant needs to be watered differently. Assistants also repot plants in the collection, mix up soil mixes, plant seeds for classes and deliver and pick up plant materials. Students will learn about pruning and pest management of plants from our global collection. Assistants may be asked to be in charge of particular rooms and lead tours on occasion. A person who has prior experience with plants is preferred. For those interested, please contact Lisa at phil0120@umn.edu.
