Middle of Fucking Nowhere

Hey Veeky Forums I'm coming up against a bit of a wall here.

I'm trying to find a job that pays decently, and involves being far away from civilization.

I can't stand living in a huge city. I don't like the large amounts of people, the garbage, the 24/7 noise, any of the caveats of living in a large metropolitan area.

I've tried looking at caretaker positions, but those rarely pay, and nowadays it seems that more are actually asking for money instead.

I don't care if it's in the middle of a forest, a deserted island, grassy plains, artic tundra, just let it be somewhere faraway from large urban centers, and pay a living wage.

Anyone know where I can browse to look for job listings that fit this description?

Look at jobs for McMurdo research station or the South Pole research station. Both in Antarctica and extremely secluded, especially if you work during the winter. If you're not a scientist, you can get in as a cook, electrician, plumber, administration, etc. Look at Lockhead Martin, I know they are one of the several companies that hire people for out there.

May not be relevant to you but I have a degree in math and tutor online for like $30/hr.

Probably not enough to live on but I just use it to fill a few hours in my schedule to make a bit of side cash. Need a degree or something though

Are research station jobs in demand? It'd be pretty cool to find other jobs like this, possibly in places that don't freeze your toes off for thinking about going outside.

They're rather tough to get, mainly because the pay is so good. You aren't spending any money while you are working there, so you're just saving up bank. I took a serious look at it in 2013, not sure how the demand is now.

no, people fight to get the job. getting a job on a research station in the arctic is only possible by nepotism.

Become a miner/forester. Pays great, but there is a bigger risk of physical harm.

Government jobs are ideal...
The only decent jobs that exist in the middle of no where are government (primary) and service jobs like a septic tank pumper, HVAC, plumber etc.

I think Alaska has about 30% of total population working for a government, and the rural parts it get's up to 50%.

I worked in Eureka, a shithole in the middle of nowhere on the west coast by the ocean.

50% of the people in the town worked for the government, because the only other jobs were Walmart or Costco.

Recent unemployed math grad here. What service/website do you tutor online through? $30/hr sounds like a phenomenal source of side income.

I think he's referencing that it might not be constant work. 30 an hour might not be too great if you only get to work 20 hours a week.

I was reading an article about this guy who lives in some remote place in Colorado and he is a government employee that goes out on a dirt bike and tests the water in streams and remote lakes.

He lives in a cabin in the literal middle of nowhere and said he only goes to town 3 times a year.
