  • Forest songbird field technician

    • Employer: Arkansas State University
      Location: Buffalo National River, Arkansas
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 01/01/2019
      Open Until Filled: No

    One field technician is needed for a project studying Cerulean Warblers along the Buffalo National River in the Ozarks of Arkansas from the end of April through the middle of July 2019. This will be the second field season of this project working toward a better understanding of this beautiful, charismatic, declining songbird in an understudied region. Duties will include surveying for Cerulean Warblers, assisting with targeted mist-netting, territory mapping via burst sampling methods and radio telemetry, nest searching and monitoring, collecting vegetation/habitat data, and data entry. Applicants with avian ecology field experience (esp. nest searching) and skill at identifying birds of eastern North America by sight and sound will be given preference, but passion for working with and observing birds can be a suitable replacement for experience! This position will require physical fitness because techs will be working in dense forests with rugged terrain. Compensation is $1400/mo. Lodging and field vehicles are provided (or employees will be reimbursed for using their personal vehicle). Study sites are in the gorge of the Buffalo National River near Yellville, Arkansas. This area has diverse bird and herp communities, wildflowers, picturesque bluffs and terrain, and wet-weather waterfalls. Several trails and river access points are nearby.

    Please send a cover letter highlighting your related field experience, a resume, your earliest starting date, and contact information of three references to Jacob Wessels; email: jacob.wessels@smail.astate.edu. Use “CERW technician” as the subject line.
