Project Description: This is a long-term study focused on the ecological relationships between coyotes, their prey, and sympatric carnivores. Both ground-based radio-telemetry and field observations are used to collect data.

Position Description: Successful applicants will have a strong work ethic, with a high degree of initiative and enthusiasm. The protocol includes a broad variety of elements, including radio-telemetry, open field behavioral observations, and carcass observations, with 90% of the job requiring capabilities for sustained physical work under demanding field conditions. Working hours vary from 8 to 10 hours/day, with a schedule of 5 days on/2 days off, followed by 6 days on/1 off.

Background Required: B.S. or B.A. degree in biology, zoology, wildlife, environmental studies, or similar background is required. Applicants must be highly competent in back-country settings, show an outstanding degree of initiative and motivation, and be able to work long hours in the field. The majority of time will be spent in the field, but duties also include data management. Field conditions are demanding, and housing is in a remote setting, with very basic dormitory accommodations. Experience with radio-telemetry is strongly preferred, but not required.

Compensation: Stipend of $400/month with housing provided.
