Técnico de campo ornitólogo (MT, USA)

One field technician is needed to assist with a PhD project at the University of Montana exploring the mechanistic basis of nest abandonment. This research takes place primarily at the MPG Ranch in Florence, MT. The technician will maintain and check nest boxes, assist in capture using mist nets and nest box traps. The technician will bleed all target species, deploy nest cameras and monitor nests for abandonment. The technician will be supervised by the graduate student on the project but expected to work alone or with volunteers.

The position will begin May 1st (some flexibility) and will end mid-July. The position will be an average of 40 hours/week over the course of the season, but the work schedule will be variable and may depend on weather. A vehicle will be provided while working on the field site.

Applicants must have previous bird handling experience. Must be willing to work long and odd hours and able to work independently. Applicants must have a valid driver's license, and be able to maintain a positive attitude while working long and sometimes tedious hours in the field. Much of the work will involve driving and hiking to nest boxes on a very large multi-use ranch. Must be able to work well with others. Strong applicants will have previous experience with brachial bleeding, mist-nets, banding and nest searching.
