3 técnicos ornitólogos para hacer transectos costeros

Three (3) technicians are needed from approximately December 2nd, 2019 to February 28th, 2020 for a study of overwintering marsh birds on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. This project will involve conducting line-transect surveys for secretive marsh birds along the entire Mississippi Coast. Duties will include: conducting marsh bird line-transect surveys, vegetation surveys, data entry and management, as well as maintaining field equipment. Most activities will be strenuous with conditions in salt marshes being humid and involving biting insects. All positions will require walking in the marsh through potentially thick mud and dense vegetation. Housing will be provided.
B.S. in wildlife, biology, zoology, ecology, or closely related field are preferred. Previous experience with avian point/line transect surveys, familiarity with birds of the northern Gulf Coast, boat operation and maintenance, and towing trailers are desired. Strong bird identification by sight and sound is heavily encouraged, as this project will involve identifying hard to detect birds. To Apply: Send a cover letter, resume, and contact information for three references to Jared Feura by email: msmarshbirds@gmail.com. Applications will be considered as they are received.
