Sue Boinski -- University of Florida
Field assistants are needed for an ongoing field study of brown capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) in Raleighvallen Nature Preserve, Suriname. Please see the listed website for more details.
Though previous experience is not necessary, priority will be given to applicants with successful experience collecting detailed social and ecological data from individually recognized mammals, especially primates. Experience in situations demanding rigorous physical exercise in tropical conditions will be useful. Assistants must be able to work well as a team in isolated conditions. Both leadership and the ability to follow are necessary characteristics of field assistants, as well as the desire to learn, flexibility and the ability to cope with confined social situations.
Support provided for internship/volunteer positions (travel, meals, lodging):
Roundtrip airfare from Miami to Suriname, food and lodging at field site provided
Term of Appointment:
Starting in March/April 2007 for a minimum of 11 months
Email CV, cover letter and 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org
