    Spend your summer doing field work in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains! We are looking for an experienced crew leader to supervise five volunteer field technicians conducting surveys for Northern Goshawks.
    PROJECT DATES (tentative): June 5, 2019 – Aug 15, 2019
    RESPONSIBILITIES: Primary duties will involve training and supervising a survey crew conducting occupancy and reproduction surveys for Northern Goshawks on National Forest land. Much of the survey work will be off trail and will require frequent long drives and occasional car camping. Closely coordinating all project activities with the Forest Service will also be required. Work will be physically demanding, involving off-trail hiking and exposure to hot weather.
    REQUIREMENTS: Previous raptor survey experience is required; previous supervisory experience is strongly preferred. Other requirements include a sense of humor, a love of adventure, and a desire to teach volunteers about Northern Goshawks and the Sierra Nevada. Survey work will occur primarily in the vicinity of Quincy, CA. A willingness to face the rigors of fieldwork with good humor is important. These rigors include physically demanding work, hot and dry weather, mosquitoes, occasional contact with bears, and housing that may be rustic and/or somewhat crowded. A personal vehicle is highly desirable but not strictly required.
    SCHEDULE: Typically 7 days on and 3 off.

    EQUIPMENT: The crew leader is expected to provide her/his own binoculars, hiking boots and camping gear for car camping (tent, sleeping bag, raingear, etc.).
    COMPENSATION: This is an IBP seasonal staff position paying $3,000/month (before payroll taxes) but includes no fringe benefits. Free shared housing will also be provided.
    TO APPLY: Please email a resume, cover letter, and the names, phone numbers and email addresses of three references to Mandy Holmgren, Biologist, at: mholmgren AT birdpop DOT org.
