Klamath Bird Observatory seeks to fill a position with primary responsibilities to support ongoing long-term avian monitoring and applied ecology studies that advance bird conservation. The Biologist will have a primary role in one to several projects and a support role in other research and monitoring studies. Implementation of field studies is a primary responsibility; hiring, training, supervising seasonal field crews, and managing field logistics. This includes developing and coordinating with project partners and private landowners, data management, and analysis and reporting. Field studies may include multiple avian survey methodologies such as point count, nest searching, mist-netting, bird banding, and species-specific survey protocols. The Biologist will complete field surveys as needed. In addition, the Biologist will support all aspects of KBO’s operations on an as-need basis.
