Description
University of Missouri and the Missouri Department of Conservation are conducting a study on how land management strategies affect bobwhite population growth in the eastern tallgrass prairie. We are looking to hire technicians June 01 – October 31 2018 to track birds using radio-telemetry, capture and tag young broods, and take vegetation measurements to characterize habitat. Work will be conducted on five conservation areas. Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie, Stony Point, and Shelton are all tracts of native tallgrass prairie. Shawnee Trails and Talbot Conservation Area are models of intensive habitat management, with mixes of native prairie, restored prairie, and strips of woodland, crop, and idle agricultural land. Salary will be $10 per hour, 40 hours per week. Housing and field vehicles will be provided.
Qualifications
Missouri summers are hot and humid. Field work involves early pre-dawn mornings, extensive walking, and a variable schedule through the season. This position requires organization and a determined attitude to balance multiple field duties and collect quality data. Experience with upland game species or radio-telemetry is a bonus, but these are trainable skills. Application review will begin in late February and continue until positions are filled. If you are interested, please email me a brief cover letter describing relevant experience, your resume, and contact information for two references at easkt7@mail.missouri.edu.
