FIELD TECHNICIAN needed in southeastern KENYA for a study of African Goshawk ecology and movements in mid-elevation cloud forest habitat. The study site is a unique area of Kenya classified as an Endemic Bird Area, and is within a day's travel of tropical savanna and the coast. Further, Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen from the study area, and the birding and wildlife viewing opportunities are world-class. The work will consist of surveying for several raptor species, nest searching, radio-telemetry of African Goshawks, and collecting basic vegetation measurements. I will provide in-country transportation to and from the study site, a small monthly stipend (enough to cover food and lodging), and training in the above skills if needed. Applicants must be in excellent physical health, able to work long days, and should be prepared for the conditions and adversities of working and living in a developing country. This requires being adaptable, patient, and adventurous. Previous field experience and/or experience traveling in a developing country is preferred, and a good sense of humor and an easygoing attitude are essential. The position begins in late Oct 2004 and will continue through at least Apr 2005, though start and end dates are somewhat flexible. Only applicants willing to commit to a minimum of two months will be considered. This is an opportunity to expand your horizons and live and work in a truly amazing part of the world. To apply, please email a letter of interest, resume/CV, and three references (names, phone #s, and email

addresses) to GRAHAM D. FAIRHURST, Terrestrial Ecology Unit, Biology Department, Ghent University, Belgium (EM: a_tachiro@yahoo.com)
