PROJECT: Long term study of southern elephant seals breeding biology

POSITION: Volunteer (unpaid) field helper

DURATION: 3 months, September-November 2010

PLACE: Sea Lion Island, Falkland Islands, Southern Atlantic

DEADLINE: submit letter of interest + CV by 31st May 2010

Various volunteer field helpers are required for the 2010 field 
season of a long term project on southern elephant seals carried out by 
the Elephant Seal Research Group. The field work site is Sea Lion 
Island (Falkland Islands). More details on the project are available on 
the research team web site: www.eleseal.org.

Successful applicants will receive adequate training and will help 
with tagging, marking, counts, behavioral observations, handling of 
pups, and collection of biological sampling. Volunteers will be 
supervised by the PIs and/or by trained technicians. Previous 
experience of field work is appreciated but not essential. The field 
season runs for approximately 3 months, from the beginning of September 
to the end of November. Only applicants who can stay for the whole 
season can be taken into consideration. Applicants should pay all 
expenses required to get to the field work site, and telephone/Internet 
expenses while at Sea Lion Island. Accommodation at Sea Lion Island is 
rather basic and self-catering. Applicants will be required to work for 
the whole length of the day, seven days per week (with half day per 
week of rest). The work is physically demanding, and it is often 
carried out in rather bad weather conditions. People without a good 
tolerance to cold are discouraged to apply. The island is a wonderful 
place with a rich and tame wildlife.

To apply please send a cover letter describing your interest in the 
position and a CV or resume to Filippo Galimberti at fil_esrg at eleseal.
org, and copy to fil_esrg at prodigy.net.mx. Contact information for one 
or more references is appreciated but not essential.
