Seeking highly motivated research assistants for marine biology/sustainable ecology research. Assistants will review literature for a long term project which utilizes cutting-edge bioacoustic analysis and theory to describe the soundscape of a threatened coral reef. Position lasts two weeks (or through the semester depending on interest, qualification, and availability), and begins immediately following acceptance.
Compensation: Work from home, no expense necessary. No monetary compensation, but assistants receive first hand experience with problems in behavioral biology, bioacoustics, and conservation.
Qualifications: This is a good project on which to get your start in marine biology, animal behavior, or sustainable ecology. An undergraduate degree in biology, psychology, ecology, or a related field is preferred. Experience with academic search engines strongly preferred. Spanish fluency a plus.
Contact: Send brief cover letter expressing interest (one paragraph including any prior experience in the sciences or other motivation) and CV/Resume to Dr. Heather Spence – info (at) heatherspence.net
