Hey all,

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is hiring a Motus Biologist to assist with the expansion of the Motus Wildlife Tracking System, an automated radio telemetry network across the Great Plains and Chihuahuan Desert (GPCD). The primary responsibilities will be to travel throughout the region to evaluate potential sites for Motus stations, construct, assemble, and repair Motus receiving stations. Secondary responsibilities may include data and inventory management, assisting with implementation of Motus workshops, and mist-netting, banding, and attaching coded tags to grassland birds. Regular and professional interaction with partners, landowners, and other members of the public will be required. Applicants must be strong critical thinkers, be highly organized and detail oriented, and have prior relevant experience or the ability to learn. Specifically, applicants must be familiar with radio telemetry or the Motus Wildlife Tracking System (http://www.motus.org). The incumbent must have a valid US driver’s license and passport, the ability to drive a truck pulling a loaded trailer, be willing to travel within the US and Mexico, and the ability to work extended hours in the evening and on weekends. Desired qualifications include prior experience using mist-nets, banding, and deploying tracking devices on birds. Intermediate Spanish language skills are a plus.

The complete position description and application instructions are available on our website here

Please feel free to forward this announcement to others as you see fit.

Thanks!
Matt
