    Update Avian Field Technicians


    Guest
    • Employer: Great Basin Bird Observatory
      Location: Nevada, California, and Arizona
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 04/15/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    Are you interested in adventure, great birds, and exploring the desert? If you are answering yes, this may be your ticket to a season in the Southwest. Thanks to a new funding opportunity, we will need several technicians ASAP to conduct riparian landbird surveys on the lower Colorado River for Great Basin Bird Observatory. The field season will begin in early April and run through mid-June; dates for technicians are flexible. Duties will include area searches of all breeding birds, avian territory mapping, and data entry on tablets and ArcGIS. The most competitive applicants will have at least one field season of experience surveying passerines by sight and sound (preferably southwestern birds); the willingness to work hard and/or long hours when needed; the ability to hike in very hot and sometimes difficult conditions (e.g. dense vegetation, standing water); the ability to navigate in difficult terrain using GPS unit, compass, and satellite imagery; experience driving 4x4 vehicles; proven ability to work safely in the field; good communication skills, and a willingness to live and work with a large field crew. Aside from these requirements, priority will be given to applicants with advanced birding skills and multi-year field work experience, applicants with experience using AGOL, ArcGIS and ESRI field apps, and applicants with current CPR and First Aid training. Couples with experience are encouraged to apply. Surveyors will be hired as seasonal temporary GBBO employees and paid $2200-$2500/month depending on experience. Field vehicles and housing (combination of field house/apartment and some camping) will be provided. Please send a brief cover letter (highlighting bird survey experience and your availability) and resume (including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references) to Dawn Fletcher (email dawnmariefletcher@gmail) as soon as possible. Positions will be open until filled.
