    Field Assistant -Demography of Canada Warblers (Cardellina canadensis) along an elevation gradient in the central Appalachians

    School of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Fisheries Resources Program, West Virginia University

    Description: The School of Natural Resources at West Virginia University is seeking a research technician to assist with a mark-recapture study of breeding Canada Warblers along an elevation gradient in the Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia.  Fieldwork will occur from approximately May 1 – July 15.  The position will entail assisting with capture and banding of Canada Warblers, subsequent resighting of color-banded individuals, and other duties as they arise (e.g., vegetation surveys, data entry during rainy days, etc).

    The ideal candidate should have experience mist netting, banding, and re-sighting color-marked birds.  Candidates should expect early mornings and rugged field conditions.  A remote field house is provided, but candidates should expect to spend the majority of working days camping in the field.  Terrain in the central Appalachians can be steep and rocky – candidates should be able to haul equipment off-trail over steep terrain.  A field vehicle will be provided.

    Stipend: $12.50 / hour for 40 hours / week.

    To Apply: Interested individuals should send a CV, 1-page cover letter, and contact information for 3 references as a single PDF file to Dr. Christopher Rota at christopher.rota@mail.wvu.edu.  Review of applications will begin the week of January 28, and the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
