URGENT-Available Internship: Photo-ID and genetics of bottlenose dolphins in 
the Bay of Islands, New Zealand

I am currently seeking an experienced intern to work with, at the Molecular 
Ecology and Evolution Laboratory at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.  

The position entails assisting during field surveys in the scenic landscapes 
of the Bay of Islands and Hauraki Gulf researching bottlenose dolphins 
(Tursiops truncatus) abundance and genetics. Assistance with data entry, 
matching and labelling of photographs will also be required.
The placement shall run for 6 to 9 weeks commencing in March 2006 (although a 
long-term assistant is preferred, short-term periods may be discussed). 

The position involves a variety of tasks including assisting during fieldwork 
trips (for photo-identification and biopsy sampling), sorting, labelling and 
data entry.  The successful candidate ideally should have photo-identification 
and boat handling experience and good motivation to collaborate with land-
based tasks. 

The successful candidate should arrange their own accommodation in Auckland, 
living expenses, travel costs and visa. There is no monetary compensation for 
this position.
