Great Basin bird and plant field positions, 2023

Happy New Year!  Our research group has field positions open for experienced birders and plant enthusiasts for the 2023 field season. I’d be grateful if you would share the announcement links with anyone who might be interested.Birds: study locations are in the Great Basin, primarily the mountains of central Nevada and western Nevada, and the east slope of the Sierra Nevada. These are spectacular, moderately to truly remote, and surprisingly birdy places.Bird season is roughly mid May through early July. Existing ability to identify western birds by sound and sight, and existing backcountry skills and common sense, are essential qualifications.Plant season is more flexible, but roughly early June through early August. Applicants should be familiar with the major tree and shrub species in the Intermountain West. Again, backcountry skills and common sense are essential.Full consideration date is 16 January. Closing date is 23 January.  I’m happy to answer any questions.Best wishes,Erica
