Dear all,

I am pleased to write that our company, Elding Whale Watching, based in Reykjavík, Iceland, will be offering 3 students (Bachlor's or Master's) the opportunity to join us for a 5-month internship to learn the basic skills of cetacean behaviour, cetacean data collection, data preparation and photo-identification. This is a great way to get your marine biology career started!

Interns are expected to work 5 days a week and will either be on our boats to collect behavioural and photographic data or in the office to process data on a computer. 

Requirements: Enrollment in a biology degree, some knowledge and experience with photography and use of DSLR cameras, basics in Excel. A personal laptop would be beneficial. Good English is necessary and the love for outdoors and marine mammals. Weather in Iceland can be harsh and data may still be collected despite rain, snow and strong winds.

Living: Accomodation and food are not covered and are of the interns own responsibility. However, on working days lunch will be provided. Also we will do our best to aid in the search of accommodation. Successful applicants will receive a pdf file with further useful information about the internship as well as living in Iceland.

Beginning of the internship is from 01.05.2019 with a preferred duration of 3 months or more. 

I encourage students who are seeking to gain experience in this field of biology to send a cv, a short motivation letter and period of availability to sabri.voswinkel at gmail.com
