Técnico de investigación ornitólogo en Hawaii

Aviary technician needed (1 position) to study game bird ecology as part of a seed dispersal study on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Forest ecosystems of the Hawaiian Islands have increasingly faced threats of species extinction and biological invasion, resulting in novel communities composed of native and non-native species. Although many native Hawaiian plants rely on birds for seed dispersal, nearly all native frugivorous birds are extinct. In the last century, the Kalij Pheasant (Lophura leucomelanos) and Erckel’s Francolin (Pternistis erckelii) were introduced to the Hawaiian Islands for recreational hunting. We are investigating the ecological impacts of these two species on seed dispersal networks.

Technician will primarily be responsible for conducting gut passage experiments with captive birds to assess seed condition (germination rate) after fruit digestion. Additionally, technician will assist with fieldwork, including capture and banding of wild birds, abundance surveys, vegetation surveys, fecal sample collection, camera trap deployment, and data entry. Fieldwork will involve long days of strenuous hiking and heavy lifting in temperamental weather conditions.

This research is a part of the Hawaii VINE Project, a collaborative research effort seeking to determine how well different species of non-native vertebrates disperse native plant species.

Start date is early April, 2018. The duration of this position is at least 4 months, with the potential to extend. We will provide housing, a living stipend of $1,000 per month, and access to vehicles.

REQUIREMENTS: A bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology, zoology, ecology or a related field and at least two years of field experience pertaining to wildlife biology or botany are required. Applicants MUST have experience with captive wildlife research or greenhouse experiments, and be responsible, organized, and comfortable working independently.

TO APPLY: Please email a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references as a single PDF document to Sam Case (Sam.Case.Hawaii@gmail.com) by February 1st, 2018. A phone number and email address must be included for each reference.

Oferta de doctorado en cognición de insectos (UK)

PhD position available

Closing date: 7th Feb 2018
Application details: https://www.findaphd.com/search/projectDetails.aspx?PJID=94048&LID=4663

Investment in cognitive traits, such as learning and memory, is expected to yield fitness benefits through better decision-making, producing behavior that is fine-tuned to the local environment. Yet the fact that animals vary in their cognitive abilities, both between and within species, suggests that such investment comes at a significant cost. We currently understand little about what these costs are, because it is difficult to manipulate cognitive abilities, and thus any relationship with other traits is by nature correlational. In this project, we will capitalize upon recent developments in insect cognitive neuroscience to overcome this problem, using a uniquely tractable experimental system (the bumblebee Bombus terrestris). We will focus upon (1) metabolic costs of investment in cognition (2) potential evolutionary trade-offs with immune function (3) impacts on life-history variables. In the latter stages of the project, there will be the opportunity for the student to develop further research questions according to their interests, which may include (but are not limited to) the use of transcriptomics to understand the genomic basis for cognitive investment.

The successful applicant will be based at Royal Holloway University of London in the research group of Dr. Elli Leadbeater (http://ellileadbeater.wixsite.com/insectcognition), and will be co-supervised by Dr. Steve Portugal at Royal Holloway and Samraat Pawar at our DTP partnership institution, Imperial College. The project will capitalize upon excellent ERC-funded social insect research facilities at Royal Holloway, including indoor and outdoor apiaries, bee rearing rooms and a dedicated cognition laboratory. The student will join a large group of researchers interested in social insect behaviour within our department, which provides an exceptionally stimuluating and collaborative environment for the proposed research. Experimental work will involve laboratory-based studies during both the summer and the winter months, with the potential for campus-based fieldwork during the summer months according to the student’s interests. Pre-application informal enquiries are strongly encouraged. Please direct these to Elli Leadbeater (Elli.Leadbeater@rhul.ac.uk).

RIVER DOLPHIN RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS IN BRAZIL STARTING SOON


Once again, Projeto Boto is recruiting for 9-month internships in the Mamirauá Reserve, Amazon State, Brazil. We require fit, enthusiastic, hard-working fieldworkers who will carry forward our long-term study of botos (Amazon river dolphins). Due to close involvement with local communities, interns are required to have at least moderate Portuguese language skills, or to speak excellent Spanish, in addition to English. Unfortunately, there can be no exceptions. In previous years we have received many applications from people who do not fulfil these language criteria, and this is counter-productive for all. Please only apply if you have the necessary skills.

Projeto boto was established in 1994. To date it has hosted more than 60 interns of many different nationalities. The Project's objective is to conserve the boto, and the sympatric tucuxi, through research leading to greater understanding of the biology and ecology of these dolphins. In recent years we have also spent considerable time investigating the impacts of fisheries on these species, and especially a harpoon hunt, in which thousands of botos are killed each year for fish bait. Over the years, our interns have collected vital data on the loss of dolphins that we are now directly using to help conserve and protect them.

We are seeking two people to commence work as soon as possible, and we would also like to hear from people available in mid-late 2018. Because of visa restrictions introduced by the Brazilian Government, which restrict the length of stay of many nationalities, we may need to give priority to applicants from South American countries.

Our work is centred on a floating lab/accommodation base, moored in the flooded forest. The research team comprises 3-5 people, who maintain daily observational boat-based research effort year-round. The basis of the work is the piecing together of the lives of over 680 individually recognisable dolphins, to provide publishable information on such diverse topics as growth, reproduction, habitat use, social system, seasonal movements, survival rates, causes of mortality etc.

Interns are provided with free accommodation and food, and receive a small monthly stipend (approx $100 US). Transportation to the fieldsite (near the town of Tefé, Amazonas) from Manaus is provided, but interns must arrange and pay for their own transportation to Manaus. They must also have adequate medical insurance. Please do not apply unless you know that you can obtain the airfare to reach Manaus. All necessary training is provided on site.

Internships offer the opportunity of a lifetime. You will see dolphins, monkeys, caimans and exotic birds every day. These appointments reward hard work and dedication with unique experiences and a chance to stand out from the crowd in subsequent applications for higher degrees and employment.

Successful applicants will:

be aged 21-35 and physically fit

speak at least moderate Portuguese or fluent Spanish, in addition to English

be available for 9-12 months

have completed a university degree, preferably in zoology or biology

preferably have some fieldwork experience, especially in the use of photo-ID



Applicants should please provide:



Full CV, complete with age, nationality, linguistic skills, educational and fieldwork experience

A letter explaining why you are prepared to dedicate 9 months of your life to this study.

The names and email addresses of 3 referees who are familiar with you and your work.

The date on which you would be available to start work in the Amazon.

Send this information by email to both of the Project co-ordinators, Prof. Tony Martin (boto@live.co.uk) and Dr Vera da Silva (vmfdasilva@gmail.com).

Closing date is 20 January 2018. Applications fulfilling the above criteria will be acknowledged within 4 days of the closing date, but there will be no further communication unless the applicant is short-listed. Short-listed applicants will be notified by 25 January latest.

Prácticas/voluntariado con ardillas en Canadá

We are looking for 4 interns interested in taking part in a field ecology
project on Columbian ground squirrels. Two interns will begin Apr 10,
2018 and two will begin May 1, 2018. All four internships will finish
on Aug 31, 2018. The project investigates the ecology of Columbian
ground squirrels. As a member of the study, interns will be involved
with monitoring the phenology (when animals emerge from hibernation),
reproduction and survival of individuals. Fieldwork will involve
live-trapping and handling of animals, radio-telemetry, behavioural
observation and assistance with the measurement of physiological
(metabolism) traits on free-ranging animals. This is an excellent
opportunity to gain training and experience working with a collaborative
research team on a long-term study of a wild mammal. Opportunities for
independent research projects are also available.

All fieldwork is carried out in the spectacular Rocky Mountains of
southwestern Alberta, Canada, home to some of the most majestic wildlife
in North America. Interns will have the opportunity to interact with,
and learn from, other researchers working with ground squirrels on a
diversity of projects in behavioural and population ecology. Additionally,
a number of other researchers in the area are studying a range of species,
from insects to large mammals.

International applicants: If applicants are not Canadians
or permanent residents, they will be required to apply to
enter Canada as Visiting Research Students. This is a simple
and straight-forward procedure and both current (graduate and
undergraduate) and recently graduated (i.e. 'in between' degrees)
students are eligible. Application forms and information are available at
http://grad.usask.ca/admissions/alternate-applicants/visiting-research-student.php
If you are interested in this program, please contact us (contact details
below) and we will guide you through the process.

Skills Required: These positions are best suited to applicants with
interests in ecology, evolutionary biology, wildlife, field biology,
and/or physiological ecology. As evidence of this, applicants must either
be enrolled in, or have graduated from, a relevant discipline. Successful
applicants will need to be able to cope under these field conditions
(including periods of time spent camping), enjoy the outdoors, be up-beat,
positive, responsible and work well as a member of a team. Evidence of
these abilities (gained, for example, through previous involvement on
field projects or extended back-packing trips) is desireable.

Terms of Employment: These are volunteer positions and a salary is not
provided. Accommodation and food are provided. Volunteers are required to
provide for their own travel to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Travel between
the field station and Saskatoon is provided.

If you wish to apply for one of these posts then please send a CV with
a cover letter and contact details for three references (with e-mail
addresses), by email to Jeff Lane (contact info below) by January 31,
