Right Whale Aerial Survey Observers

Job Announcement

  

Wildlife Trust, a non-profit international research and conservation
organization, is seeking temporary, seasonal aerial observers for marine
mammal surveys from November 2009 through April 2010.  These observer
positions are in anticipation of research activities to be conducted in the
southeast United States, specifically coastal Georgia and South Carolina.
This project would require observers to fly up to four 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 daily, 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.  Housing will be
provided for the duration of the project.  These positions are contingent
upon funding.

 

Qualifications:  

Previous aerial or marine mammal survey experience and experience in
photo-identification of large cetaceans is strongly desired.  Applicants
should be experienced in database entry and other computer applications
including photo processing software.  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.  We are currently accepting applications from US citizens and
permanent residents.

 

Application Process:

Please send cover letter, resume, and three references to
