CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR CETACEAN MONITORING PROJECT IN THE MACARONESIA
(CETUS Project - Isabel Sousa Pinto) 

The Faculty of Sciences from University of Porto (FCUP) /
Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR)
is in its 6th year of cetacean monitoring in cargo ships from
Continental Portugal (Porto/Lisbon) to Madeira (Caniçal), Azores (Ponta
Delgada/Horta/Praia da Vitória) and to Canary and Cape Verde Islands
(Las Palmas/Sal/Boavista/São Vicente/Mauritania). 

We are seeking for volunteers for the 2017 MMOs team for the following
survey periods: 1. Mid-June to August; 2. Mid-August to October 2017.

For 2.5 months, the internship includes: 

- An intensive training on monitoring protocol, cetacean identification
and data processing and analysis;
- Round-trip sea-surveys departing from Mainland Portugal in the routes
stated above;
- Educational activities in local schools (when possible); 
- Data processing and analysis;
- Free time to visit Mainland Portugal and the Islands. 

We encourage the use of this experience for university reports or
internships (given that the course director allows it) or for other
scientific results (presentation at conferences, scientific papers,
...). 

The 2.5-month internship requires the payment of 350EUR and includes
accommodation for the full period, as well as living expenses when
on-board (expenses to and from the ports are not covered). 

Requirements: 

- Accident or travel or university insurance that cover foreign
countries (specifically Portugal and African Countries); 

- Yellow fever vaccine. 

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. Relevant experience at sea and with cetacean monitoring is
preferable. 

Application deadline is 21st April. A few volunteers will be selected
for Skype interview before final decision. 

To apply please send a Motivation Letter and a Short Curriculum Vitae
(highlight experience in cetacean monitoring) to: ispinto at ciimar.up.pt;
anamafaldacorreia at gmail.com and cetusproject.pt at gmail.com. If the email
is not sent to the 3 emails requested, the applicant will automatically
be excluded from the selection process.
