          Common Bottlenose Dolphin Internships (Sardinia) - Immediate Openings
   
  Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) is currently seeking one or two interns for immediate opening as research interns. Research interns participate in BDRI's 
  ongoing research projects, giving them broad exposure to a variety to research 
methodologies. Interns receive extensive on the job training in observing wild 
  bottlenose dolphin behavior, collecting observational data, working with research 
  equipment, and assisting with behavioral research sessions. 
  
Please visit www.geocities.com/B_D_R_I for a list of current research efforts and 
  publications. We support non-invasive and non-disruptive research.
  Internships require a minimum of a 4-week commitment (6 - 12 weeks is 
  preferable). Internships gain experience in many different areas, such as 
  boat-based wild bottlenose dolphin research and assisting with data analysis in our 
  research laboratory. An internship with the BDRI requires a lot of motivation and 
  interest in dolphin research, enthusiasm, and the open-mindedness to work, live 
  and communicate with other people of mixed nationality and background. 
   
  The internship offers an excellent opportunity for qualified and motivated individuals 
  to obtain field and laboratory training in bottlenose dolphin research methodology 
  and analysis under the mentorship of bottlenose dolphin researchers. Interns would 
  assist with aspects of the field work, photographic identification of individual 
  animals, bioacoustic, behavioural analysis and data compilation.
   
  BDRI interns participating in field work activities are normally asked to contribute to 
  all aspects of the research programme, including the upkeep of materials, 
  boat-keeping, dealing with volunteers, etc. Therefore, as part of a working team, you 
  will be expected to articipate in all activities of the day including your share of basic 
  domestic duties such as cooking, cleaning and maintenance. 
   
  Interns are required to complete a small project on an assigned relevant topic.
  Interested applicants should correspond by email to:
