Field Assistant Opportunity:

1 to 2 field assistants are needed for fieldwork for a PhD candidate from
the University of Massachusetts in dolphin feeding behavior.

The field season will be focused on preliminary data-gathering and scouting
of the area for a larger, more formal field season in the future. It will
run for 4 weeks, from about May 25th through June 20th.  Research will take
place in
Crystal River and Cedar Key, Florida, 3 hours north of Tampa and 60 miles
west of Gainesville.

Assistants will be expected to work on a boat 6 to 7 days per week, for up
to 10 hours at a time. Typical weather conditions in summer include 95
degree heat, very high humidity, and no breezes.

Prior experience working on dolphins and habitats is preferred but not
required. Those with no experience should demonstrate their willingness to
learn.

This is not a paid position. Assistants will have the option to obtain their
own housing and food at the research site. Housing may be available with
the PI, in this case assistants may be asked to contribute $75 per
month towards
food. More details are available. Assistants will be responsible for
arranging their own transportation to Florida, but once in the field they
will not need their own car.

Applicants must be able to stay for the duration of the season.

Please send an email of inquiry to stefanie.gazda at gmail.com with the subject
line as "Field assistants for 2015".  A more in depth description of
the position
and its requirements will be emailed out--at that time candidates who are
still interested should  email their CV and informative cover letter to the
above email address.
