Due to a last minute withdrawal Foreman's Branch Bird Observatory is looking to hire one bander for our spring migration season. The season begins March 1st and runs through May 31st. Preference will be given to experienced banders who can arrive as soon as possible.
Successful applicants will have extensive mist netting experience (processed at least 1000 birds) and must have at least one season’s experience of migration banding. NABC bander certification is highly desirable. FBBO bands an average of 100 species in spring including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors. Our station hosts many visitors including student groups and members of the public, as well as several undergraduate interns so good people skills are a must. The position is for 40 hours a week (with 2 days off). Pay is $15/hour. Housing is provided, a personal vehicle is best due to our rural location. Applications must be submitted through Washington College’s website here: https://www.washcoll.edu/offices/human-resources/employment.php Questions can be directed to Maren Gimpel email@example.com
