Klamath Bird Observatory seeks to fill a Bird Banding Program Manager position with primary responsibilities to support ongoing avian long-term monitoring and applied ecology studies that advance bird conservation. The Program Manager will oversee all aspects of our long-term (>25 years) bird banding program, which currently includes the operation of six constant-effort bird banding sites from May through October and the application of a regional dataset that represents decades of demographic data collection at over 50 locations. In addition, the Program Manager will provide project support for species-specific studies that include auxiliary marking (e.g., color-bands, data loggers, transmitters, etc.) and biological sampling (e.g., feathers, blood, cloacal swabs). Job duties include personnel management (e.g., recruitment, supervision, and ongoing banding training for a seasonal crew of domestic and international student interns); management of KBO’s multi-facility Upper Klamath Field Station; data management and quality control; statistical analyses; report and manuscript writing; community and scientific presentation; program development and grant writing, and ongoing partnership building. KBO’s banding field crew is based in the Upper Klamath Basin, Oregon, and fieldwork requires regular camping at remote banding sites. This position has split duty stations (six months in the Klamath Basin, Oregon, and six months in Ashland, Oregon) and requires regular travel throughout southern Oregon and northern California.
