Positions

Postdocs: We anticipate advertising a postdoctoral position working with tidal marsh (SHARP) data sometime this winter (to start in spring 2022).  This position will be analysis-focused and we will be searching for someone with strong quantitative skills. We expect to advertise in Oct-Nov, but please contact me if you think you might be interested.

Graduate students: I anticipate a funded opening for a new PhD student, starting in fall 2022, focused on the creation of species distribution models for saltmarsh nesting birds. Prior experience with statistics, ideally SDMs or other forms of spatial or GIS modelling, required. This position will be grant (RA) funded for the first year, with high likelihood of RA funding for a second year. Additional years would be funded via TA positions (though we will also seek new grants/fellowships).

Field technicians: Next summer (2022) we anticipate hiring for several positions (a) surveying tidal marsh birds in the northeastern and mi-Atlantic states, (b) for tidal marsh bird banding and nest searching, and (c) to collect RTK elevation data at coastal marsh restoration sites.  Please check back mid-winter for more information, or watch for ads on the sites listed below.

Undergraduate researchers are needed to help compile data for the Connecticut Bird Atlas, Connecticut Bird History and EntoGEM projects.  Unfortunately, these are generally unpaid positions, although independent study credit is a possibility and there are ways to turn them into funded positions if you can develop an independent research project. Positions involve data entry, compiling information on historical records, and providing editorial support for the creation of web site materials on the ornithological history of the state. For more information send me an email with a resume, a copy of your transcript (unofficial is fine), your experience and knowledge of birds and birding, and a description of why a position on this project interests you.

As additional positions become available they will be posted here and advertised on the following job boards, where you can set up automated alerts:
