We are seeking a field project coordinator to help implement a field study of the potential effects of human recreation activity on mammal and reptile communities, including several species of conservation concern, in San Diego County, California. The purpose of this work is to relate variation in species detections to types and intensity of recreation activity.
The field project coordinator will be responsible for conducting field data collection and managing equipment and data. Primary activities will include conducting remotely-triggered camera surveys of recreation use and wildlife activity, coverboard and visual surveys for reptiles, and vegetation surveys. The coordinator will also engage with the public at trailheads to elicit their participation in a citizen science data collection effort, and will assist with coordinating volunteers and communicating with land managers and rangers.
Please refer to the position announcement for more details. Review of applications will begin on October 3rd and will continue until October 17th, or until a suitable candidate is identified.
