      Last Date to Apply: 04/02/2019

    AVIAN FIELD ASSISTANTS (5) needed for 6 weeks, beginning ~May 4, to assist with spot-mapping surveys of Cerulean Warblers and other target species in hardwood forest habitat at one of three scenic 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. Ability to identify eastern forest songbird by sight and sound is required, and previous experience with spot-mapping and/or point counts is preferred. Those with experience target-netting forest songbirds and with experience working with Cerulean Warblers will be given preference. There will be ~2 weeks of vegetation and habitat surveys, and so ability to identify eastern trees is also desired. Strong applicants will have a passion for bird conservation, be physically fit, be capable of working in a rugged forested setting (with steep slopes, dense vegetation, etc.), and work well in teams. Pay is $2250 for the ~six-week field season. 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 draybuck@vols.utk.edu).
