*Hawaii Spinner Dolphin Data Processing Opportunity.* The Dolphin Institute
(TDI) is a non-profit marine mammal research and education organization
based on Oahu, Hawai'i, USA. TDI's research focuses on whales and dolphins
in Hawaiian waters. It is directed by Dr. Adam Pack, Assistant Professor at
University of Hawai'i at Hilo, and Dr. Louis Herman, an emeritus professor
at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

TDI has been conducting field research with spinner dolphins (Stenella
longirostris) off Oahu and Maui for several years.  TDI collects dorsal-fin
identification photographs of individual dolphins and is a contributor to
the Pacific Islands Photo-identification Network (PIPIN) Collaborative
Photo-Identification Catalog.  TDI is seeking skilled and dedicated dorsal
matchers to assist in the processing and matching of our collection of
identification photographs.
Desired applicants should have at least six months of previous experience

cetaceans. Ideally an applicant has worked within a large (> 500
photographs) data set of digital photographs and has used computer-based
photo-processing tools.  Applicants should also have good organizational
skills and be self-motivated.  The ability to focus on a task for long
periods is imperative.

center in Ko Olina on the island of Oahu. Salary is $ 9 per hour.
