Aventuras en Nueva Zelanda!

Volunteer research assistant(s) needed early-May to early-August (specific
dates negotiable) in the investigation of omnivorous food web interactions
in the New Zealand marine intertidal. The assistant will be primarily
responsible for monitoring laboratory-based predator-prey "handling time
experiments" at the Edward Percival Field Station in Kaikoura but may also
be participate in the monitoring of caging experiments and quadrat-based
abundance surveys at field sites on the west coast of the South Island.
(See http://home.uchicago.edu/~mnovak/ for context.)

Previous research experience preferred but not required. While room and
board and travel within New Zealand will be provided, it will not be
possible to offer international travel; motivated individuals will be
assisted in writing their own grant applications with which to cover this
expense. (The opportunity for independent projects exists and will be
strongly encouraged.) Applicants must be dedicated to laboratory detail,
and flexible and comfortable working under adverse field conditions (i.e. in
the wet and winter-cold of both day and night-time low-tide periods) for
extended periods of time.

Please send a cover letter, resume, and contact information for two
references to Mark Novak via email mnovak@uchicago (Subject: Assistant
position), or to 1101 E. 57th St., Dept. of Ecology and Evolution,
University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637.
