      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: No value
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIAN (1) needed for bird surveys in northern and central Arizona with Great Basin Bird Observatory.  The field season will run from May 1 through June (end date TBD); surveyors must be available the entire season. 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 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-$2500/month depending on experience. Field vehicles will be provided; most of the season will be spent camping. Per federal government regulations, all technicians will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or an approved exemption. Please send a cover letter (including availability) and resume (including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references) to Lauren Harter (email harter AT gbbo.org) and include the position(s) you would like to be considered for (Arizona IMBCR). Position will be open until filled.
