We offer expenses-paid field assistant positions in a long-term project
conducted in the wild collared flycatcher population on the Baltic island
of Gotland (Sweden). Assistants will have their accommodation and other
expenses covered, we also offer a smaller salary add-on depending on experience and declared period of work in the project. Lodging will be provided in a large house rented for the period of the field season.

Basic duties, depending on prior experience: performing nest-boxes checks and monitoring of breeding
pairs; ringing of nestlings; capture of adult individuals, ringing
and basic morphological measurements. Prior experience with wild birds
handling and a valid driving license will be an advantage. The work is
not extremely exhausting but sometimes requires long hours in the woods,
in diverse weather conditions.
