South Carolina Acoustic Bat technician
$10.50 - $12.00/hr
Last Date to Apply
We anticipate filling one technician position for summer 2017 (Mid-May through August) to assist with a project that will be conducted in the Andrew Pickens District of the Sumter National Forest and Savannah River Site in South Carolina. This project will address questions related to bat ecology and monitoring, specifically the effects of white-nose syndrome on bat communities. We will be collecting acoustic data using Anabat Express detectors. We will not be handling bats therefore a rabies vaccination is not required for this position. The technician will have the opportunity to be trained in how to manage acoustic data and identify bat calls to species.
Housing will be provided for half of the summer while at Savannah River Site, but the technician hired will be responsible for finding housing for the other half of the summer spent at Andrew Pickens District.
Applicants must be able to work long days in rough terrain under variable conditions (heat, rain, humidity, insects). Applicants should be comfortable navigating with a map and a GPS unit, be flexible, and give attention to detail. Previous experience with acoustic detectors is preferable but not required. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have a bachelor’s degree.
To apply, please send a resume and cover letter detailing your interest to Katie Teets (Graduate Student, Clemson University) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions should also be directed to email@example.com. Deadline for applications is May 8, 2017.
