  • Seasonal Field Technician- Owl Tracking

    Wild Bird Research Group
    • Employer: Wild Bird Research Group
      Location: Mercer County, New Jersey
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 12/20/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    The Wild Bird Research Group, Inc., is seeking a volunteer Seasonal Field Technician to assist in a study of Northern Saw-whet Owl winter habitat use in the northern Piedmont region of central New Jersey.  Field Technicians will be trained in radio telemetry techniques to locate owls tagged with radio transmitters, and to collect measurements on a number of habitat variables.  On tracking days, duties will include picking up tracking equipment from a storage location in Pennington (location TBD), driving to sites where tagged owls were most recently located, locating the owls via radio telemetry, collecting data on habitat variables, and returning equipment. 

    Qualifications: Applicants must be at least 18 years old and have their own vehicle, a valid driver’s license, and a smartphone.  Tracking involves hiking off trail over uneven terrain, often through dense vegetation, and in variable winter conditions.  Radio telemetry experience is preferred but not required.  Data accuracy is paramount to the integrity of the study so patience and attention to detail are a must. 

    Hours and Duration: Applicants must be willing to commit at least one 4 – 6 hour day per week from December 2019 through February 2020.  Tracking must take place during daylight hours, so tracking days must begin in the morning.

    To Apply: Interested individuals may contact wildbirdresearch@gmail.com or gourmetbiologist@gmail.com  Applications are due by December 20th, 2019.
