The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO) is a regional not-for-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of birds by conducting scientific research, avian population monitoring, habitat restoration, and connecting people to nature. We conduct this work in support of bird and habitat conservation. We are looking for two people to join our team as field Biologists. Both positions will begin on September 1st or as soon after as possible. One position will continue for 6 months (through February 28 2023) and the other will continue for 9 months (through May 31 2023). The biologists will assist with surveys at managed ponds in support of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project ( The biologists will receive training and mentorship from SFBBO staff and will develop their skills in waterbird survey techniques and data management. The biologists may assist with additional projects if opportunities arise. The position will require an average of 30 hours per week, with the exact time commitment dependent on the duration of field surveys. The position will be based in Milpitas, CA with field sites throughout South San Francisco Bay.
