Participate in a long-term ecological study of black-throated blue warblers breeding at Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Current research focuses on the effects of climatic variation on migratory songbirds. Individuals applying should have prior experience in finding and monitoring nests; applicants with experience banding and taking blood samples from small songbirds are especially needed. We seek applicants with good color vision, able to hike and work alone in remote, rugged, and steep terrain, and with an interest in avian behavioral and population ecology. Field work starts in early to mid May and lasts 10-12 weeks (late Jul to early Aug). Lakeside housing plus a stipend of $400 per week, internet access, and utilities will be provided. Many opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, swimming, and birding can be found in the immediate area.
To apply, send cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 job references to firstname.lastname@example.org c/o Dr. Michael Hallworth, Migratory Bird Center - Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.
