*_Fin Whale Project Internship/research assistant positions Barcelona 


Dear colleagues,

Research association Edmaktub is now accepting applications for fin 
whale research Internships for winter/spring 2022. The internships will 
run from February to June 2022, majorly on the research boat, and 
requires preparation time. We are especially interested in master 
students seeking to do a master’s research project.

Edmaktub Association is a non-profit organization studying fin whale 
presence and behavior, and the biological and oceanographical conditions 
that influence fin whale presence on the coast between Barcelona and 
Tarragona, northeastern Spain. During the campaign, Edmaktub also 
collects information on other cetaceans, sea birds, fish, and sea turtles.

For the 2022 fin whale project, we are looking for research 
assistants/interns to complete the team. The positions are unpaid. 
Interns must cover their accommodation and living expenses. Edmaktub 
offers an apartment in which a room can be rented. The positions will be 
assigned preferably by the middle of November

college or university; preference will be given to students working 
towards biology, environmental studies, marine science, veterinary 
medicine, education, mathematics, artificial intelligence, or other 
related fields. If you do not fit this profile but think you can 
contribute anyway, please contact us.

-Must demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills.

-Must be dedicated, flexible, responsible, hardworking, willing to 
learn, and have attention to detail. Interest or experience in the

motivated people for three months, studying one of the most majestical 
animals that exist.

-A platform in which to gain experience in the field study of cetaceans 
and an entry to the broad scientific and professional network of Edmaktub

We currently have several research interests and priorities. We need 
people that can commit to the process of matching ID shots and updating 
our catalogue. Our general interests go to oceanography (and possible 
implications of climate change), behavior (behavioral descriptions, 
social behavior, etcetera), acoustics, marine pollution, and ocean 
health (plastic debris, boats, fishing). We would also love projects in 
collaboration with the local fishermen, or drone images related studies 
(i.e. animal health assessments...) See 
<https://www.edmaktub.org/en/fin-whale-project> andyoutube channel 
edmaktub https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtGUtaoi-cOqNtRU7qRRdlg 
<https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtGUtaoi-cOqNtRU7qRRdlg> for more 
information and the previous projects that have been carried out. 
Everything is open for discussion. In addition to research projects, we 
are looking for interns that can help us with social media, marketing, 
grant writing and website building.

Please realize that daily ocean surveys can be physically challenging 
and require a strong will and motivation. We value strong collaborative 
skills, a positive attitude, and a willingness to help others to learn. 
We appreciate our interns and take good care of each other. Do you think 
you are a good fit for the team? We would love to hear from you and get 
in touch as soon as possible.

How to apply? Send your resume and a cover letter including your 
research interests regarding this project to info at edmaktub.org. Mention 
‘FWP22’ in the email subject. Due to the high number of applications, it 
can take time to get a response.

Kind regards,

Edmaktub team
