Oceanic Observatory of Madeira (OOM/ARDITI) is currently opening
INTERNSHIPS FOR WINTER and SPRING 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/ARDITI is looking for interns to help with our marine mammals’
research project based in Madeira Island, Portugal.*

We are currently filling 1* position* for *February-March *and* 2
positions *for *April-May 2020*

Priority will be given to those interns who are available both periods.

*Internship Details:*

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

*Internship description:*

- Training on monitoring protocol and cetacean identification;

- Sea surveys Madeira-Porto Santo;

- Educational activities in local schools or to the general public (when

- Free time to visit Madeira and Porto Santo;

- Accident insurance.

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. Interns should be independent and proactive. 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.

Positions will be open until filled.

If you are interested in interning with OOM/ARDITI, please send a CV and a
letter of interest to anja.badenas at mare-centre.pt .

Thank you,

Anja Badenas, MSc
