    • Employer: New York State Ornithological Association

    [UPDATED 2/16]

    Job Description: The New York Breeding Bird Atlas III (https://ebird.org/atlasny) is looking to hire two technicians to conduct atlasing in New York during the summer of 2022 (dates: May 15-Aug 15), one in the Adirondack Park and the other in the Allegheny Plateau region. Technicians will be responsible for conducting bird surveys in assigned priority blocks, recording breeding codes, and entering these records into eBird. Comfort working alone in remote areas  is required. Technicians can expect physically demanding work, long work days that may begin well before dawn, wet, cold weather, mosquitoes and blackflies, occasional contact with bears and other wildlife, and areas with no cell service. This is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of breeding bird behaviors and habits, as well as experience many exciting atlasing moments.

    Qualifications: Technicians must be able to identify New York land and water birds by sight and sound. Must have a valid driver’s license, reliable vehicle, and be willing to work early mornings and long hours in a variety of conditions. Will be expected to work independently, follow all atlasing protocols, and navigate by GPS on and off-road.

    Compensation: Technicians will work as contractors, and will be paid $2500 per month plus mileage reimbursement. All technicians are responsible for providing their own camping equipment and gear, binoculars, smartphone, lodging, transportation, and food. We will make efforts to secure primitive camping options for you near where you are stationed.

    To Apply: Electronic applications are required and should be sent to Julie Hart: julie.hart@dec.ny.gov. Please include a cover letter and resume or CV indicating your interest and qualifications, location preference, and the names and contact information (email and phone) of 3 references, including at least 2 that can attest to your birding skills.
