MANOMET BIRD OBSERVATORY SPRING 2021 BANDING INTERN (15 April - 15 June). The Manomet Bird Observatory at Manomet, MA invites applications by e-mail for a seasonal banding intern (15 April - 15 June) position to be filled as soon as possible. Band 5 days per week. Some mist-net extraction and banding experience needed, but knowledge of eastern birds and an almost fanatical desire to learn good and safe banding techniques is more important. Enthusiasm for long hours essential. Environmental education experience is also a bonus. Will help two experienced banders and another banding intern to run 50 nets dawn to dusk, gaining hands-on experience with handling, ageing and sexing landbirds. Interns may also be asked to assist with other research projects, including biological surveys and an ongoing study of a nearby cormorant colony. Live free with fellow banding staff on 40 acres on Cape Cod Bay, town nearby (walking), and most facilities available. Stipend of $175 per week for food. All applicants must be available for the entire season, 15 April - 15 June (work requirements are not conducive to those currently or planning to take online courses).
Organizational COVID-19 guidelines will be in place for the health and safety of Manomet’s seasonal and full-time employees. These guidelines and our hiring process are contingent upon current and future state and federal mandates, including mask regulations, testing, self-quarantine requirements and travel restrictions. Thank you for your understanding!
