Please share widely! I have a last minute opening for a field assistant in
Florida this summer.

Field Assistant Opportunity:

One field assistant is needed for fieldwork to assist a post-doctoral
researcher from the University of Massachusetts in dolphin feeding
behavior, niche specialization, and habitat studies

The field season will run for approximately 8 weeks, from June 5th through
July 28th. Research will take place in Cedar Key, Florida, 3 hours north of
Tampa and 60 miles west of Gainesville. The assistant will be responsible
for their transportation in and out of Florida.

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, as well as acoustics, 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 in Cedar Key. Housing is available with the PI,
in this case assistants may be asked to contribute $75 per month towards
food. More details are available.

Opportunities for part-time work in tourist-related positions in Cedar Key
may be available to assistants-however it is their responsibility to obtain
those jobs and assistants must make the field work a priority.

Priority will be given to applicants who can stay for the duration, however
I am willing to hire in two blocks of time: June 5 to the 29th or July 5 to
the 28th.

Please send an email of inquiry to stefanie.gazda at gmail.com with the
subject line as "Field assistants for 2017".  Be specific about how much
time you can commit to. 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.
