Oferta de trabajo con aves en Florida

RESEARCH INTERNS (3-5) needed for projects examining long-term
population dynamics of Florida Scrub-Jays in natural and suburban
habitats, in south-central Florida. Interns will contribute to many
aspects of these projects including searching for and monitoring nests,
conducting surveys for banded and unbanded scrub-jays, trapping and
banding jays, measuring young, counting acorns and arthropods, etc.
Interns are expected to devote a minimum of 20 hours/week to the project
and to develop an independent project on some aspect of the ecology of
scrub-jays. Internships offer an opportunity for experience in every
aspect of scientific research, from project choice and experimental
design to oral and written presentations. Applicants should have a very
strong interest in birds, natural history and field biology, the ability
to work under hot, humid field conditions, and a strong desire to engage
in independent research. Internships include room and board and a $100
weekly stipend and expenses associated with their independent project.
Opportunities for graduate research leading to MS degrees also exist.
Most positions begin in early-Feb and extend through Jul, but some
flexibility exists and at least one position can begin in mid-March and
extend through Sep. Applicants should send a letter, resume or CV, a
summary of courses and grades and the names and contact information of
three references by 1 Dec, to DR. REED BOWMAN, Archbold Biological
