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 ).


University of Wales Bangor: Conservation
genetics/forensics studentship
Title: The development and application of genetic
markers for wildlife
University of Wales Bangor, School of Biological
Sciences. PhD
Studentship available to eligible EU persons with an
intended start date
of 4 Oct 2004.
The supervisor Prof. R.S. Thorpe and the small
business sponsor is Wildlife DNA Services Limited.
Project outline: This project aims to explore the
application of population genetic markers to the
problem of individual identification in wildlife
crime. The work will focus on investigating the
ability of species-specific markers to discriminate
between closely related individuals, and determining
the minimum size of reference population necessary to
present DNA profiles as forensic evidence. Some work
will be carried out on birds of prey but the remit is

into the New Zealand falcon, 1st NOVEMBER 2004-1st
MARCH 2005, 3 months minimum. Volunteers
will be carrying out a radio tracking study of New
Zealand falcon in the central North Island of New
Zealand. They will be involved in nest location,
banding, transmitter attachment and behavioural
observations at the nest. New Zealand boasts some of
the world's most unique flora and fauna and weekends
will be free to explore the extensive indigenous
forest adjacent to the study site - that are some of
the most pristine remaining in New Zealand. Volunteers
will be required to work long hours, to have
experinence working in the field and previous radio
tracking experience. Preference will be given to those
with a clear enthusiasm for raptors. Accomodation,
vehicle and field fuel will be provided. No airfares
or food expenses can be paid. To apply volunteers must
send a resume to Richard Seaton at
r.seaton@massey.ac.nz with a covering letter clearly
stating the dates of availability, along with the
email addresses of three referees.


Two experienced field ornithologists are needed to
work in two small islets (Dia and Gramvousa) close to
Crete for the Project "Conservation Measures for Falco eleonorae in Greece (LIFE 03NAT/GR/000091)".
Employees will work as wardens monitoring the human
activities close to the colonies and discouraging
visitors to collect eggs and/or disturb the chicks,
but will also monitor the breeding biology of the
species (timing of egg-laying, hatching and fledging, estimation of productivity, breeding and hatching success etc). Employees will have to spend at least 25 days a month on the islets from the beginning of August until the end of September (the exact termination date will be decided by the falcons...).
Monthly compensation is about 1000 Euros and all
travel and accommodation costs are covered by the
