Common Bottlenose Dolphin Internships (Sardinia) - Immediate Openings
 
Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) is currently seeking one intern 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 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 5 - week commitment (6 - 12 weeks is 
preferable) from mid August 2006. Internships gain experience in many different areas, such as boat-based wild bottlenose dolphin research and assisting with data analysis, entry in database, etc. 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. 
 
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.
Our internships program is a full time voluntary position. Unfortunately, funds are very limited, there is no compensation for this internship position and successful applicants will be responsible for their living and transportation expenses during the time of the internship. Food and living space could be arranged for internships onsite (in the field base paying approx. 60 Euro per week).
   
  Interested applicants should correspond by email to:
  Bruno Díaz López (BDRI Director)
Email: B_D_R_I at yahoo.com
 
Accepted applicants will be notified by e-mail on or before July 25th, 2006.  
Accepted applicants will have 5 days to notify us in writing of their acceptance of the 
position.
 
We are happy to answer any questions you have, but answers to common questions
