We seek a dedicated individual to assist with research projects focused on the use of cover crops by wildlife in agricultural ecosystems in Indiana.  Projects will investigate raptor use of cover-cropped fields and vole population dynamics and crop damage.  The successful applicant will be responsible for coordination and conduct of fieldwork, supervision of undergraduate students and, cultivation of close working relationships with the graduate students and faculty PI.  Successful applicant must be comfortable working alone in the field and in harsh weather conditions.

The position will focus on raptors in winter and early spring, and voles in spring and early summer.  However, as aspects of these projects rely on the weather and timing of spring planting, flexibility is required.  Some weekend, early morning, and late evening work will be required. All sampling will occur in private farm fields, so the position requires excellent communication skills, a willingness to engage with farmers, and respect for property and landowners.  Attention to detail when collecting data is a must. 

Required

       Bachelor’s degree in wildlife ecology or a related natural resources field

       Excellent organizational and communication skills

       Attention to detail and ability to follow a detailed protocol

       Ability to carry up to 50 lbs across uneven ground
