Job Summary
Several wildlife technicians are needed for a long-term population and habitat ecology study of the
California Spotted Owl in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. Two positions begin April, and six positions will begin in early May.
All positions will last until August 18, 2017. The starting pay rate is $14.179 per hour. Wildlife technicians will conduct surveys for
California spotted owls, re-sight color bands, assess owl reproductive status, locate nest trees, assist in banding owls, as well as conduct
vegetation surveys, care for equipment, and record sightings of other animals encountered. Wildlife technicians will also record,
transcribe, and enter data into computer databases, and validate data that was collected in the field.

A typical workweek is 40 hours. Field housing will be provided, but frequent camping is required during the work week. Schedules will be
irregular, owls are nocturnal, but will often require daytime follow-up visits. Technicians must work and live cooperatively.

Our research group has been studying the demography of California Spotted Owls in central Sierra Nevada since 1986. One of our primary goals
is to monitor the status of owls in the central Sierra Nevada, as well as to try to understand the environmental factors and forest
management practices that impact spotted owl population dynamics. Ultimately, these results are translated into recommendations to land
management agencies such as the US Forest Service responsible for maintaining viable spotted owl populations.
