Volunteer field assistants needed for poison frog behavioral research in Panama

VOLUNTEER FIELD ASSISTANTS (1-2 positions available) needed for June 15, 2011 to July 15, 2011 (dates somewhat flexible) to assist in a study on the behavior of the strawberry poison-dart frog, Dendrobates pumilio. Work will be conducted at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute facilities in Bocas del Toro, Panama.

Though no prior field experience is required, applicants should be comfortable with spending long hours outdoors in warm, humid climates. Work will include capturing frogs for body measurements,recording behaviors and calls in the field, ecological surveys, and behavioral experiments. Assistants are expected to work 5 days a week with 2 days off, and are encouraged to pursue independent projects during their days off. I will cover housing and $200 for food, but no salary will be available.

If interested, please send a resume/CV and contact information for three references to Laura Crothers (email: crothers@mail.utexas.edu).
