BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE TECHNICIANS (Seabirds), summer 2013The Alaska Maritime
National Wildlife Refuge is hiring!  The biology
program is looking for 10-15 Biological Science Technicians for the
summer of 2013 to assist with our long-term seabird monitoring
program. Technicians will be collecting data on breeding chronology,
reproductive success, population changes, adult survival, and food
habits of 15 species of seabirds (including storm-petrels, cormorants,
kittiwakes, murres, pigeon guillemots, auklets, and puffins). We will
be placing crews on some amazing islands including Aiktak, Buldir,
Chowiet, East Amatuli, St. George, St. Lazaria, and St. Paul. The job
announcements are available at:


Best qualified applicants will possess (or be working toward) a degree
in wildlife biology or related field and have prior field experience.
All applicants should be in excellent physical condition and able to
live and work happily with a small group of people in an extremely
remote and isolated environment.  Cold, wet, windy weather and spartan
living conditions are the norm.  Seabird and boating experience is
desirable but not required.  Appropriate safety training will be
provided. Technicians will be hired at the GS-4, 5, 6, and 7 levels.
Vacancy announcements are posted on the USAjobs website at  The announcements can be found on the USAjobs
website by searching for ³Homer, AK² in the ³Where² search field of
the home page.  You must apply between 3 December 2012 and 17 December
2012 to be considered for these positions.  If you have trouble
finding the job announcements please contact us and we can email you
the announcement information.  Only applicants available for the
entire period should apply, as transport to and from the islands is
restricted.  You must be a U.S. citizen or national (resident of
American Samoa or Swains Island) to apply.  You must include
transcripts with your application package because these positions have
educational requirements that need to be verified.  It is helpful to
send along a cover letter with your transcripts outlining which
classes you are using to claim the educational requirements since it
is not always obvious from class names.  We are expecting a list of
qualified candidates by late-January.  We will begin interviews and
selections once we receive the list.  Please feel free to contact Marc
Romano ([log in to unmask]) with questions.
