Técnicos ornitólogos (12 plazas)

Participate in a long-term, ecological study of breeding birds at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Current National Science Foundation-funded research focuses on effects of climatic variation on bird abundance and population dynamics.

 Two positions are available: Warbler Technician (8) and Survey Technician (4). Both positions require good color vision, the ability to hike long distances and to work alone in remote, rugged, and steep terrain, and an interest in avian behavioral and population ecology. A positive attitude, flexibility, and eagerness to learn are requirements! Fieldwork starts in early to mid-May and lasts 8-12 weeks (late July to early August). We typically work six days per week from 5:30 am to 1:30 pm in the field plus time for data entry after returning from the field. We can only work full days when the weather is favorable. A stipend of $420/week plus lakeside housing, utilities costs, and internet access are provided. Many opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, swimming, and birding can be found in the immediate area.

Warbler Technicians must have prior experience finding and monitoring passerine nests; experience with banding and taking blood samples from small passerines is preferred. Additional duties include insect and small mammal surveys, measuring vegetation, and transcription of video-recordings of nestling provisioning.

Survey Technicians must be able to identify New England forest birds by sight and sound and have prior experience watching or studying birds outside of the classroom. Previous work conducting avian point-counts is preferred.

To apply, send cover letter, CV, and contact information for 2 job references to btbw2017@gmail.com.
Please include all application materials as a single email attachment. In the email subject line, indicate the position you seek along with your last name as follows: “Last Name_Warbler Technician” or “Last Name_Survey Technician;” use “Last Name_Avian Ecologist” if you want to be considered for both positions. Address any questions to Danielle Aube. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
