Ornithology Exchange
  • An avian field assistant in China

    • Employer: Beijing Normal University
      Location: Dagang Forest Farm, Jilin Province, in Northeast China
      Country: China
      Last Date to Apply: 03/30/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    We are looking for a volunteer field assistant for our study on the breeding ecology and cuckoo parasitism in Daurian Redstart Phoenicurus auroreusfrom April 20 to June 30, 2019. The project will be conducted in Dagang Forest Farm, Jilin, Jilin Province, in northeast China. You are expected to assist in catching and handing adults, searching nests, checking nest boxes, monitoring the breeding process and conducting experiments, etc. During the process, you will have opportunities to learn field skills of ornithological research, see many bird species of northeast China (e.g. Ural Owl, Black Woodpecker and Red-crowned Crane and so on), and experience Chinese food, tradition and culture.

    The project will cover all work-related expenses during the volunteering period (i.e. housing, foods, and traffics, etc.), but there is no salary, and the assistants are responsible for their travel to and from China.

    This is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to gain valuable field skills or who wish to pursue a career in an ecology related field. No previous field experience or bird handling is necessary as you will get one-to-one training.

    To apply:

    Please contact Jinggang Zhang at "zhangjg@mail.bnu.edu.cn". The application should include (1) a short CV, (2) the dates you will be available for the project, and (3) the names and contact information of at least two references.


    We are looking forward to you!
