Dear Readers:



The British Antarctic Survey is seeking three interns to spend 5 weeks
analysing and classifying satellite images of whales from 1st July to 5th
August 2019 at British Antarctic Survey headquarters in Cambridge, UK, as
part of a World Wildlife Fund project studying whale densities in the
Western Antarctic Peninsula. The internship will be paid at a rate of
£300/week.



Prior experience with ESRI’s ArcGIS software is essential. Prior field
experience with cetacean surveys is highly desirable, particularly aerial
survey work. You will gain experience in satellite imagery analysis of
whales and have a co-authorship contribution to subsequent publication from
this work. For more details of the image analysis methodology please see
Cubaynes et al. (2018).



Interested applicants please send a covering letter (an expression of
interest in the project explaining your experience and reasons for
applying) and a two page CV to Jennifer Jackson (jeck at bas.ac.uk) by Friday
10th June 2019. For all general enquiries about the project, please contact
Connor Bamford (conord48 at bas.ac.uk). This opportunity is open to UK and EU
citizens.
