Field Assistant Opportunity:

2 field assistants are needed for fieldwork for a PhD student's
dissertation from the University of Massachusetts in dolphin feeding
The field season will run for approximately 3 months, from June
through August, pending final funding. Research will take place in
Cedar Key,
Florida, 3 hours north of Tampa and 60 miles west of Gainesville.

Assistants will be expected to work on a boat 6 to 7 days per week,
for up to 10 hours at a time. Typical weather conditions in summer
include 95
degree heat, very high humidity, and no breezes.

Prior experience working on dolphins and habitats, as well as
acoustics, is preferred but not required. Those with no experience
should demonstrate
their willingness to learn.

This is not a paid position. Assistants will have the option to obtain
their own housing and food in Cedar Key. Housing is available with the
PI, in
this case assistants are asked to contribute $75 per month towards
food. More details are available.

Opportunities for part-time work in tourist-related positions in Cedar
Key may be available to assistants-however it is their responsibility
to obtain those jobs and
assistants must make the field work a priority.

Priority will be given to applicants who can stay for the duration-a
minimum commitment of one month is required.

Please send an email of inquiry to stefanie.gazda at gmail.com
with the subject line as "Field assistants for 2009".  Be specific
about how much time you
can commit to. A more in depth description of the position and its
requirements will be emailed out-at that time candidates who are still
interested should
 email their CV and informative cover letter to the above email address.
