Voluntariado con murciélagos en Panamá

VOLUNTEER RESEARCH ASSISTANTS (4 positions available) needed for February 1, 2011 to June 1, 2011 to assist with a study on the foraging behavior of the tropical frog-eating bat, Trachops cirrhosus. Work will be conducted at Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute facilities in PANAMA, both in the mainland town of Gamboa, and for the month of March on Barro Colorado Island in the Panama canal. No prior experience is required, but applicants should be comfortable working late at night in hot, humid, and buggy conditions. Work will include mistnetting bats, recording frog and insect calls in the field, ecological surveys, and behavioral experiments. As the position is unpaid, volunteers are expected to work only 4 days a week with 3 days off. Volunteers must cover all their own expenses including airfare to Panama City, housing and food. Housing in Gamboa is $300-$400 per month and we will make regular trips to the grocery store in Panama City. On Barro Colorado Island combined room and board is $980. If interested, please send a resume and contact information for three references to PATRICIA JONES (email: patricia.jones@mail.utexas.edu).
