We are looking for research assistants to help with aerial surveys in the states of Sinaloa and Nayarit (Mexico) to investigate the seasonal distribution and density of humpback whales in this region of Pacific Mexico.

This work will contribute to a project focused on the study of the spatial ecology of humpback whales in the "mainland Mexico" wintering area and quantifying the risk of vessel collision, in an area where major port expansions and constructions are planned.

Applicants MUST have previous aerial survey experience involving marine mammals, with a preference for experience with cetaceans. There will be the additional possibility for the the right candidate, and for those interested, to stay for an extended period to partake in dedicated cetacean vessel surveys until the end of March 2018.

To apply please write to: nicola.ransome at murdoch.edu.au<mailto:nicola.ransome at murdoch.edu.au> with CV and details of availability.

The position is a volunteer position, but accommodation costs will be covered.

Thank you so much for any interest,

Nicola Ransome – PhD Candidate
