AVIAN FIELD ASSISTANTS (5) needed for 4-5 weeks, beginning ~May 1, to assist with spot-mapping density surveys of Cerulean Warblers and other forest bird target species at one of three beautiful study sites in either the Tennessee Cumberland Mountains, Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest, or Vinton Furnace State Forest in Ohio. We will also search for returning color-banded Cerulean Warblers and attempt to recapture any encountered birds that were geolocator-tagged in 2017 as part of a range-wide migratory connectivity project and may target-net other warbler species as part of a separate feather mite project. Ability to identify eastern forest songbird by sight and sound is required, and previous experience with spot-mapping and/or point counts is preferred. Strong applicants will have a passion for bird conservation, be physically and mentally capable of working in a rugged forested setting (with steep slopes, dense vegetation, etc.), and work well in teams. Pay is $1750 to $2250 DOE. Please send a cover letter highlighting your related field experience, a resume/CV, and contact information of three references to: Doug Raybuck at the University of Tennessee (email email@example.com).
