Oferta de trabajo: Field Research Technician

Interested in Wildlife Ecology/Environmental Issues?

The Appalachian Laboratory (UMCES) is seeking a part-time Field Research
Technician to assist with migratory bird research being conducted in Rock
Creek Park, Washington, D.C. The person will assist in searching for bird
and bat carcasses that may have been killed by striking cell phone towers in
the park. Tall towers are known to kill nocturnally migrating birds, but
little is known about the effects of shorter towers (like the ones in Rock
Creek) on these birds. The successful applicant will assist with different
aspects of the research, but primarily will carry out ground and net
searches 2 days per week, preferably on weekends, 3-4+ hrs per day beginning
at sunrise, from 15 April-15 June and 15 July-15 November. Applicant must
be able to negotiate varied terrain from steeply sloped woodlands to paved
parking lots and cope with poison ivy and stinging insects. Those with a BS
(or in progress) in wildlife, biology, or a related field will be given
preference. Experience with bird and bat identification and related
fieldwork would be a plus. Technician will be paid $10/hr. Submit a letter
of interest, resume, and names, addresses and phone numbers of 3 references
by 13 April 2007 to (electronic submissions preferred): Stephanie Dickey,
sdickey@al.umces.edu, or call 301.873.5445 for more information. UMCES
welcomes and specifically encourages applications from minority and women
applicants; UMCES is an AA/EOE employer.
