  1. Wildlife Technician (Sage-grouse) - Oregon Opening for a wildlife technician to study season long horse grazing on sage-grouse habitat beginning March 4th and ending the end of June. The experiment is a collaborative research project between Roaring Springs Ranch, Oregon State University and USDA-ARS. The study uses a case study approach to determine the impacts of season long (8 months per year) horse grazing on 1. Sage-grouse nesting habitat structure and composition and 2. Behavioral interactions between nesting sage-grouse and grazing horses within active nesting habitat located near a water source. The work will involve living and working at a cattle ranch located near the Steens Mountains and will include assisting with capturing, radio-collaring and tracking grouse using VHF technology with the ranch biologist and staff in the early spring, and likely some habitat vegetation measurements and fencing work later in the spring/summer. Vegetation work will likely include some of the following: line point intercept, line intercept, visual obscurity using robel pole, daubenmire plots and belt transect. Plant ID is a plus, but most ID will likely be to functional group and training can be provided. Work might include other duties associated with the research project/ranch. 1. Courses/experience in natural resources, wildlife, botany, plant science, or related field. 2. Avian experience preferred 3. Experience with vegetation monitoring methods 4. Experience working with telemetry 5. Experience living or working in rural/remote locations 6. General knowledge of computers and skills for use of word processing and data entry. 7.

    AniMove Science School

    Dear all, the application deadline for the AniMove Science School is approaching. Apply before February 1st 2019 to learn how to analyze animal movement and remote sensing data for ecology and conservation applications using R. AniMove 2019 will be in Yale, US from June 3rd to 14th at the Max Planck - Yale Center for Biodiversity Movement and Global Change. bout AniMove: Animal Movement Analysis summer school is offered as a two-week professional training course, that targets students, researchers and conservation practitioners that have collected animal relocation data and want to learn how to analyze these data. Course participants will have the opportunity to apply learned techniques to their own data during the course. Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal movements. But analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of tracking data can present scientific, computational, and technical challenges that require scientists and practitioners to master new skills from a wide range of computational disciplines. AniMove, a collective of international researchers with extensive experience in these topics, teaches a two-week intensive non-profit training course for studying animal movement. This two-week course focuses on interdisciplinary approaches linking animal movement with environmental factors to address challenging theoretical and applied questions in conservation biology. To achieve this, participants will acquire significant skills in computational ecology, movement data pre-processing and analysis, modeling, remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). more details here: http://animove.org/courses/yale-2019/
