Voluntariado herpetológico en una isla del Caribe

Curacao
 
The Integrative Ecology Lab of Jocelyn Behm and Matt Helmus from the Center for Biodiversity at Temple University is looking for a field assistant to help out with herpetological field surveys aimed at studying how human development influences exotic and native species on Curacao from mid-January to mid-March 2017 (start date somewhat flexible). 

Previous field experience is required.
Previous field experience with herps, insects, birds, and/or in the tropics preferred.

Field work will entail surveying and capturing herpetofaunal species (lizards, frogs) and their prey (invertebrates and plants), and visual surveys for avian predators. Curacao is a small island in the southern Caribbean situated between Aruba and Bonaire just north of Venezuela.

Field assistant duties:

-Ability to perform day and nighttime surveys in hot, mosquito-y, conditions.
-Must be comfortable handling lizards, frogs, insects, and their excrement.
-Willing and able to learn new field techniques as needed.
-Attention to detail, organized, and able to accurately follow instructions.
-Must be clean, courteous, and able to get along with others in a team setting and shared housing situation.

We will provide lodging and cover roundtrip travel costs from the US to Curacao, and a stipend is available to cover food costs while in Curacao.

To apply, please send brief cover letter describing your interest in the position and previous relevant experience, along with a CV and contact information for 3 references to: biodiversity [at] temple [dot] edu

Review of applications will begin December 17 and continue until the position is filled.

Hi, I am Gloria Gómez-Lobo Moya. I'm graduated Environmental Sciences from the "Uneversidad Autónoma de Madrid", Madrid (Spain). I do my final degree project about HSP90 (heat shock protein 90) in Podarcis muralis. I do my external practices colaborating with "Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales" (MNCN, National Museum of Natural Sciencies) in a project with lizards around Iberian Peninsula. I help in a project with amphibians in Natural Park Sierra de Guadarrama. I am really interested in continous my learning about herpetology and conservationism and I think this volunteer is perfect for that. I participate in a volunteer before and I like a lot the experience. I wonder how can I point me to this volunteer.
Thank you so much
Cheers
Gloria
