A bird bander is needed to assist in a study of disease prevalence in forest birds across Kipahulu Valley, Haleakala National Park, Maui Island. This is a unique opportunity to work in a remote Hawaiian rainforest hosting spectacular bird communities, while learning from and contributing to a multi-disciplinary study strongly focused on gathering information important for the conservation of forest birds. Duties will include operating mist nets to capture and band songbirds, sampling blood to obtain DNA, and taking detailed morphological measurements. Some endangered species will be encountered during the course of this work, and applicants should have strong mist net extraction and passerine banding experience. This is a collaborative effort to understand avian malaria and other responsibilities might include mosquito trapping and sampling. The position also requires a significant amount of travel to and from the Big Island and Maui as well as helicopter travel in and out of remote field locations. Applicants should feel comfortable multi-day back country camping, for up to 10 days at a time. Field work will involve bending, walking and hiking over rough and uneven terrain. Field work will also involve exposure to conditions ranging from hot and dry to cold and wet. The incumbent may be required to lift and carry equipment weighing up to 50 lbs. This position would begin mid to late August and would finish in November/December, 2019. This is a volunteer position with per diem of $1040/month + housing provided at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park; airfare to Hawaii is not included, but airfare reimbursement from Honolulu to Hilo is possible. To apply, please send a single PDF including a brief cover letter (1-2 pages) highlighting relevant experience, a resume, and the name, phone number, and email address of at least 3 references to Elizabeth Abraham, USGS Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center, firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted until position is filled, but no later than July 20, 2019.
