    The Fleishman lab at Oregon State University invites applications for up to two ornithological field assistants from mid May through mid July. Participate in long-term studies of avian ecology in the montane Great Basin (central and western Nevada and eastern California). General responsibilities include conducting daily point counts of breeding birds; some observations of bird behavior, and some measurements of vegetation structure, composition, and phenology. Potential to contribute to radio tracking of individual songbirds. Excellent opportunity to explore the little-known, spectacular mountain ranges of the Great Basin (e.g., Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor) and to interact with multidisciplinary teams of scientists and land managers. Few days off, but some afternoons free. Research assistants will work independently and in small teams. Field vehicle provided, or use your own 4WD vehicle and receive additional generous compensation for mileage. Camping at field sites will be the norm, with occasional access to small-town motels.

    Existing ability to identify western songbirds by sound and sight is essential, as is previous experience camping, driving, and orienteering in the backcountry.
