We are currently seeking volunteers to take part in ornithological fieldwork activities in southern Sweden. You will be working alongside researchers within the project ‘Urban Birds’, investigating the urban environmental impact on bird behaviour and physiology. Between April-June, we monitor ~1000 nestboxes nestboxes for great tits and blue tits in the Malmö, Helsingborg and Göteborg areas. Activities include checking nestboxes, recording breeding activity, and ringing and measuring chicks. This offers a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the field. Training is provided.
A car will be provided and, if needed, accommodation can be offered for full-time volunteers at our field station, close to Lund. We are ideally looking for people who can participate for the duration of the field season from early April to mid/late June.
A valid driver’s license is essential.
Interested candidates should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating their experience and interests, together with a CV and contact details for two people who can provide a character reference.
