The office of Migratory Bird Management, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, will be hiring biological technicians for the 2014 field season. We are looking for experienced seabird observers who can go to sea, sometimes for weeks at a time. In addition to potential surveys from large research vessels in the Bering and Chukchi seas, MBM will be conducting its July survey of Prince William Sound this year. The PWS survey is conducted from three 25 ft vessels and may require camping and more exposure to the elements. There is potential to split a bio-tech's position between projects to extend the appointment, depending on scheduling of the pelagic trips. These vacancy announcements close on February 19, so if you're not sure yet, we suggest you get on the register now and you'll have time to think about it.
