We seek a short-term (~3 months) research biologist to assist with field work and developing project reporting and outreach materials for an ongoing study of American woodcock migration ecology. The successful applicant will assist with capturing American Woodcock in North Carolina and South Carolina during mid-January and February 2019, and will also assist with development of maps and other visual aids to contribute to project reporting and outreach activities. Housing will be provided during field work and the successful applicant will be required to travel to the field site; all other work may be done remotely. For more information about the project, please visit woodcockmigration.org.
The successful applicant should have a BS degree and preferably an advanced degree in wildlife ecology or related field. An ideal applicant will have prior experience working with GPS movement data in R and have R coding skills. Applicants should have experience 1) coding in program R, 2) working with animal movement data, and 3) location database management. While this is a short-term position, we believe it would be well-suited to applicants that have recently completed graduate school and are in the process of transitioning to a career-level position. Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
