    NORTHERN SPOTTED OWL MONITORING INTERNSHIP at Point Blue Conservation Science

    Location: Marin County, CA.

    Duration: March 4 to June 30, 2019 (possibly extending to August 31).

    Deadline: December 21, 2018

    Position Type: Internship

    Position Description: Interns (2) needed to assist in the Northern Spotted Owl monitoring project at Point Blue Conservation Science on the California coast, in Marin County. We have been studying this dense breeding population of Northern Spotted Owls since 1997. Fieldwork includes determining site occupancy, nesting status, and reproductive success. The intern will participate in inventory surveys at new locations, monitor long-term sites, and will also be responsible for data entry. The intern will become proficient in field protocols for monitoring Spotted Owls, orienteering, and owl identification. The intern will also become familiar with current conservation topics, including climate-smart principles, via weekly paper discussions and presentations. Any use of personal vehicles for field work will be reimbursed. The intern is needed from March 4 to June 30 (this position may be extended as late as August 31, dependent on funding for a Barred Owl study). Local housing is provided. This is a voluntary training position that includes a stipend to offset living expenses while on the project ($1400 per month, gross).

    Qualifications: A strong interest in birds and conservation, self-motivation, a sense of humor, and the desire to spend long hours in the field and office are required. The field schedule is variable and involves working at night and during the day. Applicants should have good hearing abilities, and have the ability to traverse long distances through steep and uneven terrain with some poison oak. Participants must be able to work independently as well as with a partner. A functioning pair of binoculars is required. Applicants will need a driver's license, a personal vehicle, and current proof of insurance (preference may be given to applicants with AWD or 4WD).

    To Apply: Submit applications via email including a letter of interest describing previous experience with field research, a resume, and contact information for three references to RENÉE CORMIER (EM: rcormier@pointblue.org;  PH:  415-868-0655 ext. 416). In your letter of interest, please state your dates of availability, and whether or not your vehicle is 4WD/AWD (not necessary for all interns).
