¡A coger lagartos en las Bahamas!

Job Description: 2-3 people are needed to assist a UCLA graduate student in a study of brown anoles on the island of Great Exuma, Bahamas. The project aims to understand how humans are impacting natural populations of brown anoles through habitat alteration. The data collected during this upcoming field season will help determine the role of natural selection in driving intraspecific morphological variation. The primary responsibility of the field assistants will be to catch large numbers of lizards for a mark-recapture study. Other responsibilities will include data entry and logistical support.

Duration: June 6- July 7

Qualifications: Applicants must have experience working in the field and must be proficient in Excel. Experience capturing and handling lizards is strongly preferred. Applicants must be incredibly motivated and have outstanding patience and focus.

Benefits: Food and lodging will be provided. The living conditions are extremely good compared to most field situations: hot showers, full kitchen, air conditioning, and proximity to beaches!

Additional Requirements: Selected applicants must pay for their airfare to and from George Town, Great Exuma (from $300 to $600 depending on city of origin).

To Apply: Please email (preferred), fax, or mail your cover letter, CV or detailed resumé and a list of 3 references to
