*Issue: *Urgent - Volunteers required in Portugal for MMOs in monitoring
campaigns in the NE Atlantic Ocean (Isabel Sousa Pinto)


The Faculty of Sciences from University of Porto / Interdisciplinary Centre
of Marine and Environmental Research is preparing its 3rd year of cetacean
monitoring in cargo ships from Continental Portugal (Porto/Lisbon) to
Madeira Island (Caniçal).



Sampling season will start in mid-June (date depending on the company
schedules) and will go on up to October. The surveys will occur at least
twice a month and last for about a week (go and return from the continent
to the island).



We are seeking volunteers for the MMOs team with, at least, one month of
availability within the sampling season. Training will be provided but
people with cetacean monitoring experience will be preferred. Successful
applicants should possess or be enrolled in a BS or MS course in biology or
related, be reliable, dedicated, adaptable and patient, as this work is
highly weather dependent and requires consecutive days of work at sea.



These are unpaid travel expenses to or within Portugal and accommodation
between surveys are not covered, however, all the expenses on board are
(food and accommodation).



Participants can also participate in data entry and data analysis if they
wish to work/learn with GIS and habitat modelling techniques.



If you are an undergraduate or graduated student interested in pursuing a
careen in marine mammal research, this is an excellent opportunity to learn
and gain experience at sea.


To apply please send a Motivation Letter and *Curriculum Vitae* to:
