SEASONAL AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIANS (4)- We are seeking enthusiastic avian field technicians to assist with nest searching/monitoring, avian surveys, and vegetation surveys on privately owned grasslands in northwestern Illinois. We will be investigating how different types of management practices (http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/ia/newsroom/features/?cid=stelprdb1077081) within the federal Conservation Reserve Program (http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/national/technical/nra/ceap/?cid=stelprdb1041269) affect avian communities and their productivity. Housing will be provided for the crew. Technicians should be able to work independently and as a part of a small team, and should have an eager interest in field work and birds. Applicants with grassland bird nest searching experience, grassland bird visual and aural identification skills, and identifying Illinois grasses and forbs are particularly encouraged to apply. The field season will start in early May and end in early August. Please send, electronically, a brief cover letter detailing your interests and qualifications for this position, resume, and three reference contacts to Justin Shew (EM: justin.shew AT siu.edu). Technicians will be paid $1300 per month and applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Please e-mail or call Justin Shew (PH: 314-520-8786) with any questions.
