Right Whale Aerial Survey Observers

Job Announcement

  

Wildlife Trust, a non-profit international research and conservation
organization, is seeking temporary aerial marine mammal observers for the
period November 15, 2006 through April 15, 2007, and additional observers
for the period December 1, 2006 through March 31, 2007.  These observer
positions are in anticipation of research activities in the southeast United
States, specifically coastal Georgia and South Carolina.  Anticipated
research would require observers to fly up to five days per week, up to
eight hours per day in a small, twin engine, high wing aircraft primarily to
locate North Atlantic right whales in the Southeast U.S. calving ground.
Surveys will be flown every day, weather permitting, and observers must be
willing to work weekends and holidays during the survey period.  Observers
will be required to participate in aviation and marine safety and survival
training.

 

This is a temporary, 40 hour/week position at a salary rate of $14/hr.
Health benefits are not provided with this position but worker's
compensation coverage will be provided.  Housing will be provided at no cost
to the observers for the duration of the project.  These positions are
contingent upon funding.

 

Qualifications:  

Applicants must be experienced in database entry and word processing and
preferably other computer applications.  The ability to live and work well
in a team environment and withstand up to 8 hours per day in a small
aircraft is required.  Previous aerial or marine mammal survey experience
and experience in photo-identification of large cetaceans is strongly
desired.  

 

Application Process:

Please send cover letter, resume, and three references by September 15,
2006.
