  • 2-month field assistant positions monitoring breeding birds

    Ella Cole
    • Employer: University of Oxford
      Location: Oxford, UK
      Country: United Kingdom
      Last Date to Apply: 12/15/2021
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    We are seeking to appoint 2-3 field assistants to work on the long-term Wytham tit study – now running for 75 years – for two months in spring 2022.

    Duties will include collecting standardised data from nest-box breeding populations of blue and great tits, ringing parents and nestlings and collecting phenological data from trees and phytophagous insects, as well as inputting data collected in the field. Fieldwork begins in early April and continues to early June. The work is variable in intensity, with a peak in May that requires long (12 hour+) days in the field, but more flexibility away from this period.

    Successful applicants will have accommodation provided on site, and, in addition, receive £1500 living expenses per month.

    Successful candidates must have (or be qualified to obtain) a BTO permit to ring adult and nestling tits, be able to demonstrate skill and enthusiasm for biological research as well as experience of fieldwork under arduous conditions, and of working as part of a team.

    Please submit application, consisting of CV, covering letter explaining relevant experience and motivation, and the names of two people who can be contacted as referees, by 15 December 2021 to ben.sheldon.pa@zoo.ox.ac.uk

    Informal inquiries can be addressed to eleanor.cole@zoo.ox.ac.uk or ben.sheldon@zoo.ox.ac.uk
