Are you interested in adventure, great birds, and exploring the desert? If you are answering yes, this may be your ticket to a season in the Southwest. Great Basin Bird Observatory is seeking several field technicians to conduct riparian landbird surveys on the lower Colorado River. The field season will begin approximately March 9 and end approximately June 10, with some flexibility on either side. Duties include area searches of all breeding birds and territory mapping, with data collection on tablets and ArcGIS; and pre-survey plot scouting and trail clearing. The most competitive applicants will have at least one field season of experience surveying passerines by sight and sound (preferably southwestern birds). The ability to hike in very hot and sometimes difficult conditions (e.g. dense vegetation, standing water, mosquitos), good communication skills, and a willingness to live and work with a large field crew are essential. Couples with experience are encouraged to apply. Surveyors will be hired as seasonal temporary GBBO employees and paid $2000-$2500/month depending on experience. Field vehicles and housing (combination of field house/apartment and some camping) will be provided. Please send a brief cover letter (highlighting bird survey experience and your availability) and resume (including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references) to Dawn Fletcher (email firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 7. Positions will be open until filled.
