Oferta de empleo: Asistentes de campo en California

Field assistants needed for an ongoing long-term study of the behavioral
ecology of the western bluebird at Hastings Reservation in upper Carmel
Valley, California. Hastings is a field station run by the Museum of
Vertebrate Zoology, UC Berkeley and this study has been ongoing since
1983. Current work focuses on behavioral ecology, particularly delayed
dispersal and the importance of nepotism in winter family groups.
Interns for the project must be avid hikers, comfortable tromping around
in the wilderness to monitor nests and happy to sit in blinds during the
mornings watching behavior. Self-discipline and genuine interest in
field biology as a career are helpful. Prior experience with birds is
desirable but not required; self-motivation, enthusiasm for the
questions and ability to tackle the rigors of fieldwork are a must. We
are particularly interested in candidates who believe they would like to
go to graduate school in behavioral ecology or field ornithology.
Positions start in Mar or Apr 2008 and continue through mid-Jul with the
possibility of an extended stint for more focused individuals wishing to
participate fully in a research project leading to publication. We offer
a small living stipend ($800/month) along with housing. The experience
is designed to be one of total immersion six days a week. Send or e-mail
a resume along with the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of at
least two references to DR. JANIS DICKINSON, Cornell Lab of Ornithology,
159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca, NY 14850 (EM: jld84 AT cornell.edu,
