Salary: $1800-$2200/month. Additional funding pending
Duration: 3 months, end of April through July 31
Job Description: I require 3 motivated field technicians, including one crew leader, to assist with data collection in support of my MSc research on duck nesting success in the prairie parkland region. Field work is centered around nest searching, using 2 person teams and ATVs to drag a chain designed to flush nesting hens. Once a nest is found, technicians candle eggs to determine incubation stage and mark the nest using a GPS unit. Nests are revisited weekly to monitor progress of incubation and fate. In addition to nest searching, technicians will conduct breeding pair and brood surveys (requires extensive walking). Other duties include equipment maintenance and data entry. Technicians are expected to work long hours with limited days off and still be able to collect reliable data.
