BirdLife International is seeking an enthusiastic volunteer to support the data collection component of a project addressing the impacts of wind farms and power lines on birds in the Mediterranean. The position will be based at our headquarters in Cambridge, England.
BirdLife is the world’s largest conservation partnership and a globally recognised leader in bird conservation science. Through our network of 120 national partners, we are committed to finding practical and sustainable solutions to environmental problems that will benefit both nature and people. BirdLife and its partners have recently developed an avian sensitivity mapping tool to facilitate responsible wind energy expansion in the Middle East and Northeast Africa, and we are now working to expand the tool to the Mediterranean.
The successful applicant will be involved in helping to compile the underlying soaring bird population data on which the tool is based. Data collection will involve liaising by email with BirdLife’s regional partners and external experts and conducting a systematic literature review. The resultant data will be tabulated into a standardized format in Excel before being integrated into the online mapping tool.
Applications are invited from dynamic, self-motivated candidates who meet the following criteria:
The successful candidate will report to the Global Science Officer. The role will require liaising with a number of staff in the Science, Policy and Information Management division and with staff from a number of BirdLife’s national partners.
The position will be based in our offices at the David Attenborough Building in Cambridge, England.
The duration and working hours for this voluntary position are flexible and open to discussion. Ideally, the successful candidate would be available 2-5 days per week for a 3-6 month period.
To apply, please send (a) a covering letter, responding to the selection criteria and (b) your curriculum vitae, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 June 2016.
Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Interviews will be held in June 2016.
