This is an exciting 9-month, full time opportunity, offering competitive salary with benefits, to join the Archipelago Research and Conservation (ARC) team and make a real difference to the future of native birds on Kauaʻi, Hawaiʻi. We carry out research and management activities related to the impacts of infrastructure on endangered Newell’s Shearwater (‘A’o), Hawaiian Petrel (‘Ua’u), Band-rumped Storm-petrel (‘Ake’ake) and other native birds on the island of Kaua‘i, in some of the most beautiful and challenging locations in the world. To monitor avian collision risk with powerlines, we conduct nocturnal surveys using night vision and thermal binoculars, and deploy remote sensing equipment to monitor collision when staff are not present. To access the survey sites and remote camp sites, we hike on rugged trails, use 4×4 vehicles, helicopters, and move equipment with helicopter sling loads. The hard work of ARC-IMMP (Infrastructure Monitoring & Minimization Project) staff documenting avian collision risk with powerlines and testing collision reduction solutions is already having a positive impact on the conservation of these rare and endemic species. Join ARC-IMMP and make a difference at the leading edge of infrastructure minimization research. Applications reviewed as received! Final date to apply Jan 15th 2023.
