Oferta de trabajo con loros en Costa Rica

EXPERIENCED FIELD ASSISTANTS desired: Seeking two assistants to work in
Costa Rica on a study of vocal communication in threatened yellow-naped
amazon parrots. The focus of this NSF-funded project is observational
and experimental based research on parrot communication. This position
also involves nest finding and monitoring, and involvement in a
conservation program at local schools. Assistants must be
quick-thinking, motivated, hard working, and willing to work in adverse
conditions including insects, mud, wind and heat. Last field season was
a bad tick year; we frequently found clumps of over 100 baby ticks
crawling on us. Field work is 6 days a week and is demanding; expect to
work hard. Anyone can apply, but Spanish-speaking ability and experience
with tree-climbing, video and audio-recording, animal behavior and/or
parrots are a plus. Must be able to work both independently and with a
team, as well as with children during a conservation based program.
Non-smokers preferred. Under-represented minorities are especially
encouraged to apply. Duration of project is early Jan to late Mar.
Benefits include $1000 salary, up to $650 towards airfare, free group
lodging and many beautiful sunrises with the parrots. Food and health
insurance not included. To apply, please send a cover letter, resume,
contact info for two references, and a copy of your transcripts.
Contact: CHRISTINE DAHLIN, (EM: crdahlin@nmsu.edu) or mail to 602 Texas
Ave, Las Cruces NM 88001.
