    Raptor banders needed for study of Hawaiian Hawks: 2 banders are needed for a study of movement and habitat use of the endangered Hawaiian Hawk (I’o) across a habitat gradient from intact forest to urban landscapes. Work will focus on the capture, measurement, and attachment of backpack GPS+GSM tracking devices to hawks targeted in multiple locations on Hawaii Island. This research seeks to evaluate movement patterns across a range of habitats to help inform conservation actions for this endemic Hawaiian species. Applicants must have demonstrable capture, banding, and backpack harness attachment experience for raptors, ideally experience with Buteos and use of bal-chatri and dho-gazza traps. The work is planned to begin in early October 2019 and continue into February 2020. Salary will be approximately $2,830/month. To apply, please send a single PDF including a 1-2 page cover letter highlighting relevant experience, a resume, and the name, address, phone number, and email address of at least 3 references to Eben Paxton, USGS Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center, at epaxton@usgs.gov.  Applications will be accepted until positions are filled, but no later than August 16.
