FIELD TECHNICIAN(s) for Avian Monitoring in the Middle Rio Grande Bosque:
Mid- May - August 30, 2012 (start date flexible, raptor nest monitoring may begin in April). Hawks Aloft, Inc., a New Mexico non-profit organization, seeks an enthusiastic field technician for our study to measure avian abundance and species richness relative to different land management strategies within the riparian corridor along the Rio Grande from Bernalillo south to La Joya Wildlife Management Area.

We invite applicants with a demonstrated ability to work independently with minimal supervision, experience identifying western birds by sight and sound, and previous field experience with birds and other wildlife. BS/BA in a biologically related field or work towards a college degree in
biological sciences is preferred; however, local individuals with strong identification skills of native avifauna by sight and sound also are encouraged to apply.

Position is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico and all surveys are local. All songbird surveys begin within 30 minutes of sunrise and must be completed within 4 hours; however, raptor monitoring may occur throughout the day.

Must be willing to use your own vehicle (mileage reimbursed). Attention to detail and good time management skills are also helpful. Up to 30/40 hours per week, Monday-Saturday, variable hours, will consider part-time. Pay $11 - $14 per hour, depending on experience. Position will be filled as soon as a suitable applicant is found.
