    Wildlife Technician - California

    • Employer: University of Wisconsin - Madison
      Location: Sierra Nevada, CA
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 03/13/2020
      Open Until Filled: No

    Thirteen field technicians are needed to undertake field work conducting surveys for California spotted owls and barred owls in the northern Sierra Nevada, California. The position begins May 8, and will last until mid- to late-August. Pay is $14.18-$16.00/hour depending on experience. All members of the crew will deploy and retrieve autonomous recording units (ARUs), enter and analyze acoustic data, and perform routine maintenance of field equipment.

    A typical workweek is 35 hours. Field housing will be provided, but frequent camping is required during the week. Schedules will be irregular, but a typical week often consists of 2-3 days in the field, 1-2 days of office work and 2-3 days off. Much of the work will be solitary, but group work and cooperative living will also be required.

    The recent expansion of barred owls into the western US has had dramatic negative consequences for northern spotted owl populations. Barred owls are now increasing in abundance in the Sierra Nevada, the core range of the California spotted owl. This project will provide information vital to the successful management of both species at broad spatial scales in California.

    The UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences is committed to maintaining and growing a culture that embraces diversity, inclusion, and equity, believing that these values are foundational elements of our excellence and fundamental components of a positive and enriching learning and working environment for all students, faculty, and staff.
