Research on harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) in Iceland; volunteering research assistants needed
The Icelandic Seal Center in Hvammstangi, North West Iceland is at the moment accepting applications for volunteering research assistants for the summer of 2011. The volunteers will assist in different research projects regarding harbor seals (Phoca vitulina). The tasks will for example consist of behavioral observations of harbor seals, monitoring and recording haul-out sites, collecting biological samples and identifying them in the lab, assisting with data entry and with some preparation of results. This is an excellent opportunity for students and individuals interested in getting more experience in the marine mammal research field.
Applicants need to have finished at least a B.Sc degree in biology and preferably have some experience of marine mammal research. Driver’s license is necessary. The volunteers have to be available from end of May/beginning of June to the end of August and are expected to work 8 hour shifts (mostly during day time), five days a week.
Accommodation is covered by the Icelandic Seal Center, but the positions are unpaid and the volunteers are required to cover their own transportation.
If you are interested in working with us, please send your application, CV and cover letter, where you describe previous experience and education to sandra at veidimal.is<mailto:sandra at veidimal.is> before March 15, 2011.
