Ducks Unlimited seeks four highly-motivated research technicians to assist with waterbird surveys from February 15, 2021 to April 16, 2021 – start and end dates may vary by a day or two. A successful applicant should expect to participate in a waterfowl and shorebird spring migration study in the Rainwater Basin of Nebraska (NE).

Major responsibilities will include properly identifying waterfowl and shorebirds to species and social groups. Successful applicants will be expected to work at least five days each week (i.e., 40 hours per week). Some weekend work may be required.

Successful applicants will be expected to work safely and effectively in a rural setting without direct supervision. A valid driver’s license and clean driving record is required.
