needed for monitoring and catching breeding passerines

at the Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich. Website:

http://www.tierisches-meunchen.bio.lmu.de Location: Munich, Bayern,


Job description: The field assistants will help collecting breeding and

behavioural data on urban Great Tits (Parus major) from the beginning

of April 2015 to the end of June 2015. The aim of the research is to

assess the effects of key urban environmental traits – i.e. light,

noise, and temperature – on the local avifauna. Assistants will work

closely with a large, international team consisting of a post-doc,

Master and Bachelor students, as well as one other assistant. Field work

is physically demanding, and involves cycling with a ladder outdoors

in the city in all weather conditions. The breeding season is intense

and with typically only 1 day off per week. Duties include behavioural

observations, nest monitoring, bird handling (banding, measuring),

data entry and data management.


Qualifications/Experience: Candidates must have experience with

independent bird handling (preferably with small passerines), including

ringing and measuring. Candidates should have a BSc in Biology or a

related field. Ideal candidates are highly motivated, well organized

and able to work independently, while at the same time able to function

well in a big group. A financial compensation and housing will be

provided. German knowledge is beneficial.


Applications: Review of the applications will begin Mid-January and

continue until the positions are filled. To apply, please send (1)

a statement of relevant experience, (2) a short resume or CV, and (3)

contact information for two references to Philipp Sprau (EM: p.sprau

AT lmu.de).
