      MONITORING AVIAN PRODUCTIVITY AND SURVIVORSHIP (MAPS) PROGRAM.
      Three Field Biologist Interns are needed immediately to operate
      constant effort mistnetting and banding (MAPS) stations throughout
      the continental U.S. Join this continent-wide, cutting edge effort
      to determine the vital rates that cause changes in North American
      landbird populations. Positions are available in the Northwest
      region (Alaska, Montana, Oregon, and Washington), and the Western
      Midwest/Texas region (Missouri and Texas). Interns are accepted into
      a given region and, after training, are assigned to a specific
      location. Internships are from 1 May (23 Apr for Midwest/TX) through
      8 August. Enthusiastic individuals with previous birding and/or
      field research experience are preferred. Prior banding experience is
      not necessary as all internships include an intensive, two week
      training course in mistnetting, banding, and aging and sexing small
      landbirds. Good physical condition, a tolerance of long days that
      begin before dawn and the ability to endure sometimes difficult field
      conditions are required. Applicants must have reliable
      transportation they are willing to use on the job (mileage
      reimbursement of $.30/mile will be provided). Shared housing and a
      per diem ranging from approximately $432 to $720 per month (depending
      on location and experience) for food and other out-of-pocket expenses
      are provided. For more information and application materials please
      visit our website at www.birdpop.org or contact KELLY GORDON, The
      Institute for Bird Populations, PO Box 1346, Point Reyes Station, CA
