2 Expenses-paid field assistant positions for a project investigating dispersal of Siberian jays in Swedish Lapland

For the upcoming field season (15.6.-1.10.2022), we are looking for 2 highly motivated, expenses-paid field volunteers to assist with our field project (principal investigator Dr. Michael Griesser, University
of Konstanz). The study site is located near Arvidsjaur in Swedish Lapland. An overview over our past work can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaH6wjAYAiE

Our current project investigates the effect of social interactions on the dispersal of Siberian jays. The work of the field volunteers will be to help with catching, radio-tagging and colour-ringing birds, sampling blood, conducting population censuses and behavioral observations, and managing data. This work will provide insights into a long-term study system and will be carried out in managed and pristine boreal forests. Our fieldwork may at times involve walking up to 15km per day.

  1. Bird ringing and mist-netting experience
  2. Field work experience, preferably involving behavioural observation and experiments
  3. Radio tagging and radio tracking experience is a plus
  4. Ability to work in small teams and sociable personality
  5. Driver’s license (manual transmission)
  6. Fluent in English
We will cover accommodation, travel expenses from and to the study site (up to 360 euros return), as well as on-site living expenses (food).

Applications, including a CV, letter of motivation (1 page), and the name of two referees, should be sent to Michael Griesser michael.griesser@uni-konstanz.de, preferably in a single PDF.

Applications received until 2. May 2022 will be given full consideration.
