Many Field Biologist Interns are needed to operate constant effort mistnetting and banding (MAPS) stations throughout the continental U.S. Join this continent-wide, cutting edge effort to determine the vital rates that cause changes in North American landbird populations. Positions are available in the Northwest region (Alaska, Montana, Oregon, and Washington), California, the Western Midwest/Texas region (Missouri and Texas), and the Eastern Midwest/East region (Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, West Virginia and North Carolina). Interns are accepted into a given region and, after training, are assigned to a specific location. Internships are from 1 May (23 Apr for Midwest/TX) through 8 August. Enthusiastic individuals with previous birding and/or field research experience are preferred. Prior banding experience is not necessary as all internships include an intensive, two week training course in mistnetting, banding, and aging and sexing small landbirds. Flexibility, good physical condition, a tolerance of long days that begin before dawn and the ability to endure sometimes difficult field conditions are required. Applicants with good field vehicles are especially needed. Shared housing and a per diem ranging from approximately $432 to $720 per month (depending on location and experience) for food and other out-of-pocket expenses are provided.
