Thought some birders with time on their hands might like these opportunities:

SHOREBIRD SURVEYOR AND TECHNICIAN OPPORTUNITIES
SHOREBIRD SURVEYORS
Professional, experienced shorebird surveyors needed to work in small teams on the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts for a study of the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on shorebirds. Scope of work includes conducting shorebird counts, assessing degree of oiling on live birds, and recording the species composition of roosting and foraging flocks. Field work will include long days and travel by truck, boat, and foot, often in difficult and remote coastal environments. Excellent working knowledge of shorebird identification, working familiarity with Garmin GPS units and software, and the ability to carefully follow survey and data management protocols are required. Confidentiality agreement and daily delivery of data collected according to standard operating procedures that will be supplied are also required.
We are currently in the final stages of contracting for the study and expect survey work to begin ASAP as qualified individuals are found.  We expect to have all positions hired within the month of September and surveys will end on Nov. 30.  Full time and part time opportunities will be available, with priority to those available full time.  Payment for contracted services will range from $1200-$1600/week for full time depending on experience and scope of work.  Lodging provided in some areas, travel and lodging expenses reimbursed as applicable.  
Please respond with a statement of interest that includes a list of relevant experience and skills, your availability (full or part time), dates of availability, and contact information for 3 references (e-mail addresses and phone numbers) to: METTA McGARVEY (mmcgarvey@manomet.org).

Confidentiality agreement and daily delivery of data collected according to standard operating procedures that will be supplied are also required.
