Oceanic Observatory of Madeira (OOM/ARDITI) is currently opening photo-id
internships in Madeira Island (Portugal)

The Oceanic Observatory of Madeira (OOM) is a research unit within the
Regional Agency for the Development of Research, Technology and Innovation
(ARDITI), located in Madeira Island, Portugal. OOM seeks to become a centre
of excellence dedicated to research and permanent monitoring of the ocean.
This initiative brings together a multidisciplinary scientific community,
joining several institutions with the aim of promoting cooperation and
resource optimization. http://oom.arditi.pt

OOM is currently looking for 2 motivated and proactive interns for updating
photo-id catalogues of cetaceans, from March to May 2018.

Internship Details:

Interns will be responsible for the update of photo-id catalogues of
several species of cetaceans that occur in this region of the Atlantic. One
of the positions will be dedicated exclusively to the catalogue of
bottlenose dolphins, while the other will be responsible for the smaller
catalogues of several other species, such as sperm and baleen whales, among
others. Applicants should take into consideration that photo-id requires a
high attention to detail and long hours spent in front of a screen
comparing photos. These are office based positions, but interns may also
participate occasionally in field work. Interns are expected to work mainly
from Monday to Friday on regular office hours, and will join a
multicultural group of several other interns and students. Interns need to
bring their personal laptop for this work. This is a *voluntary* internship
and interns are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and
personal costs. Interns should also have a health insurance or one could be
provided here (costs are around 30eur/month).


Successful applicants should possess or be enrolled in a BS or MS course in
biology or related, be reliable, dedicated, adaptable and patient. Priority
will be given to those who can commit full time. Experience in photo-id is

Application deadline is 30th January.

If you are interested in these positions with OOM/ARDITI, please send a CV
and a letter of interest focusing on the interest of this internship to
