*Internship Details:*

In Madeira Archipelago, located in Macaronesia (NE Atlantic), 29 species of
cetaceans are recorded. Daily, there is one ferry boat that conducts trips
between the 2 main islands of the archipelago, Madeira and Porto Santo. The
interns will be enrolled in data collection through visual surveys 3 days
per week. Interns must cover all their accommodation, travel and food
expenses, except onboard, where food is provided. These positions are
unpaid but we encourage candidates to seek grants where we can post as host
institution. In order to cover for logistic expenses, there is a monthly
fee of 75eur. Non-European candidates must cover their own insurance

*Internship description:*

 - Training on monitoring protocol, cetacean identification and data
processing and analysis;

- Sea surveys between Madeira and Porto Santo;

- Participation on research trips, when possible;

- Free time to visit Madeira and Porto Santo;

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. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student interested in pursuing
a career in marine mammal research, this is an excellent opportunity to
learn and gain experience at sea.

If you are interested in interning, please send a CV and a letter of
interest to rita.ferreira at oom.arditi.pt.
