Convocatoria laboral: Consultoría ordenamiento territorial del bioma amazónico

El bioma amazónico cubre 6,7 millones de km2 y se extiende por ocho países y un territorio. El bioma abarca el mayor bosque tropical contiguo que existe en el planeta, con una diversidad inigualable de especies y hábitats y con funciones ecosistémicas críticas en la dinámica del clima regional y global. La Amazonía está hoy cada vez más amenazada por la tala, la ganadería, la agricultura, la infraestructura y la minería. Los efectos negativos de estas actividades junto con una planificación deficiente y débil gobernanza, se ven agravadas por el impacto del cambio climático.

Objetivo de la consultoría
 Analizar por qué y cómo las áreas protegidas del bioma amazónico son parte integral del ordenamiento territorial a escala local y regional, analizando los procesos regionales que se están desarrollando en la Amazonía y generando propuestas desde lo local para las instancias y/o oficinas de planeación a escala Nacional para integrar las AP en la planeación y acuerdos de gestión compartida en fronteras y  acuerdos regionales.

Field assistance- Germany

The Department of Behavioural Ecology and Evolutionary Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Seewiesen, Bayern, Germany (see http://www.orn.mpg.d...ment_Kempenaers), is seeking three to four field assistants to work from 1st November 2017 to 30th April 2018. These assistants will work as part of a long-term study on the reproductive biology of a blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) population in a protected forest site in Southern Germany.
  • catching birds at feeders and nest-boxes using traps and/or mist nets
  • measuring and banding birds
  • maintenance of electronic nest-box and feeder hardware and equipment
  • setting up experimental equipment
  • data collection, entry, and management
Successful candidates must have experience in catching and handling birds, including extensive experience in mist netting. Applicants should also be highly motivated and well organised, with capabilities of working both in a group and independently. Field work hours can be long and tiring, thus applicants must be prepared to work in all types of weather conditions, at any time (including weekends and holidays), with typically only one day off per week.The working language at the Institute is English, so good knowledge of the language is required. A full, clean driver's licence is essential, with driving experience of at least one year. Experience in driving vehicles with manual transmission is also a necessity. Applicants from outside the EU must ensure they are eligible to remain in Europe for the duration of their contract.Successful candidates should be vaccinated against Tick Borne Encephalitis (TBE or FSME) before commencing the field work. In addition, applicants should be aware that Lyme disease spread by ticks is common in the area, and should inform themselves about the disease in advance.

The Max Planck Institute for Ornithology employs a dynamic, dedicated, and international group of researchers who are focused on exploring the fields of evolution, ecology, genetics, and neurobiology.

In an effort to employ more people with disabilities, the Max-Planck-Society specifically encourages people with disabilities to apply for the position. To increase the employment of women in areas where they are under-represented, the Max-Planck-Society also encourages women to apply for this position.

Review of applications and calls for interviews will begin in September 2017. If you are interested in applying for one of the field assistant positions as described above, please apply (including your CV) via email to kbeck@orn.mpg.de.

Banding Technician Interns- Costa Rica

The Nicoya Peninsula Avian Research Station (NPARS) is seeking banding technician interns for a winter project in northwestern Costa Rica. The research is aimed at studying winter populations of nearctic-neotropical migrants, age-specific molt patterns in Costa Rican resident bird species, and ecological and competitive interactions among hummingbirds. Winter participants will aid in the operation of bird banding sites on the Nicoya Peninsula. These positions are opportunities for students, educators, amateur or professional ornithologists, and nature enthusiasts to visit one of the most beautiful countries in the Americas, participate in a tropical bird banding operation, and contribute to an international effort to study declining migratory songbirds.
NPARS has a number of banding sites situated on the eastern coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. Habitats within the banding sites include coastal mangrove forest, second-growth humid forest, and mature humid forest. Commonly occurring species within these habitats include migrants such as Prothonotary Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, and Tennessee Warbler, and residents such as Mangrove Vireo, Black-headed Trogon, Long-tailed Manakin, twelve species of hummingbirds, a variety of woodcreeper species, and many others.
Interns may also assist in a pilot research program aimed at better understanding the habitat requirements of coastal mangrove specialist species. This project will involve traveling to mangrove estuaries and will employ various remote sensing and surveying methods.
Regular banding sites are operated from 6:00am – 12:00pm for three consecutive days each week. Responsibilities during banding days will include station setup and takedown (including mist nets), extraction of captured birds from mist nets, handling and banding of captured birds, collection of relevant measurements and data, and other responsibilities associated with banding station operation. Some non-banding days will involve data computerization, equipment organization and maintenance, and laundering bird holding bags, in addition to duties related to general living space functionality. During non-banding days we will have the opportunity to travel to visit nearby towns, preserves, and beaches, including renowned birding hotspots such as Monteverde and Carara National Park.
The group will be based at Finca Pura Vida, a 6-hectare villa near the town of Cobano. Painted Buntings, Long-tailed Manakins, Summer Tanagers, Turquoise-browed Motmots, and many other species are commonly seen on the grounds. A hummingbird banding operation is conducted on the Finca; ten hummingbird species are regularly banded here, including Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. Participants will have the opportunity to assist in banding a variety of hummingbird species.
Dates & Costs:
The approximately 5-week internship begins on or about December 15, 2017 and ends on or about January 21, 2018. Precise dates are TBD.
Costs associated with food, housing, ground transportation, and park entrance fees will be funded by NPARS. However, these grants DO NOT cover the cost of airfare. Interns must purchase their own international flights. Once in Costa Rica, all travel expenses will be covered by NPARS.
Qualifications:
Applicants must have a strong interest in birds and nature, and preferably be experienced in identifying birds in the field. Mist-netting and banding experience is desired, but not required. Applicants should be prepared for early mornings and long days, and should have the ability to work both as part of a tight-knit team and independently, as well as being prepared to travel within Costa Rica and work flexible hours in field.
To Apply:
E-mail a resume (cover letter optional) to Sean Graesser (gourmetbiologist@gmail.com) by November 1, 2017. Please describe any previous field experience, educational background, and current contact information.
