Two research assistants are needed for fieldwork at the Smithsonian
Tropical Research Institute (STRI) station in Bocas del Toro, Panamá.

DATES: 06/24 - 07/31

Volunteers will be assisting two Master students with boat-based
observations and acoustic data analysis of a bottlenose dolphin population
in Bocas del Toro, Panamá. Fieldwork is going to be intense involving long
hours in a small boat and under extremely sunny and warm conditions.
Volunteers are responsible of their own traveling
and accommodations expenses at the STRI station.

We do not require any previous experience with dolphins and experience in
acoustics analysis is considered a plus, but once again it is not required
as long as you are willing to learn. Volunteers are expected to be able to
communicate well in English or Spanish (preferably both).
Local undergraduate students from Panamá are strongly encouraged to
participate.
A positive attitude is a must!

If interested, please send a message explaining why you would like to
participate with an attached resume or CV to shakiguani at gmail.com.
