    AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIANS (2) needed for bird surveys in northern and central
    Arizona with Great Basin Bird Observatory. The field season will run from late April
    through mid-June. Surveys use the IMBCR point count protocol, identifying and
    measuring distance to all birds detected and performing brief habitat assessments at each
    point. Proven experience in backcountry navigation; hiking in sometimes difficult
    conditions (e.g. dense vegetation, steep terrain); good communication skills with
    coworkers, landowners, and the public; ability and willingness to work independently for
    up to 10 days at a time; and good bird identification skills are essential. The most
    competitive applicants will have at least one field season of experience surveying
    passerines by sight and sound (preferably southwestern birds). Surveyors will be hired as
    seasonal temporary GBBO employees and paid $2200-$2400/month depending on
    experience. Shared housing for days off will be provided; however, most of the season
    will be spent camping. Field vehicles are provided. GBBO policy requires all technicians
    will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or an approved exemption.
    Please send a cover letter and resume (including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail
    addresses of 3 references) to Lauren Harter (email harter@gbbo.org) and include the
    position(s) you would like to be considered for in the subject line (Arizona IMBCR).
    Positions will be open until filled.
