Preferred qualifications include: coursework in ornithology, wildlife ecology, and/or animal behavior; a sincere interest in learning field research techniques; and the ability to endure the rigors of fieldwork. Prior experience with avian behavior studies and/or nest searching is required. Assistants will receive a stipend of $1200 per month, and housing will be provided for non-local assistants. If interested, please submit a cover letter, resume (with a list of relevant coursework), and contact information for three references via email to Dr. Donna Maney at email@example.com.
