assistant(s) during a project in the north-eastern and mid-Atlantic

research groups, the project will take place during summer 2009,
beginning in May, and will primarily focus on detecting beaked whales
with passive acoustics, although other cetaceans will be
documented/recorded too. The project will be conducted from IFAW's
dedicated sailing research vessel, Song of the Whale. SOTW is a 22 m
long, purpose-built sailing research vessel with accommodation for 10.
Experience in boat-based field work on cetaceans, particularly acoustic
research is required as is familiarity with the use of computers. The
team onboard will be made up of IFAW staff, visiting scientists and
volunteers/student interns. For further information about the SOTW team

Specific information about life on board for interns is also posted on
the website. Availability for all or part of the project will be

board and lodging onboard the boat will be provided and a small weekly
allowance may also be available.
