ecology fieldwork in CAMEROON, Sept. through Dec. 2013

We are seeking a field assistant for three months (mid-September through

parasitic indigobirds and their hosts the estrildid finches. Fieldwork
will be centered around a small town in central CAMEROON. The objective

species. Fieldwork will include nest searching, song recording and
mist-netting birds.

Applicants must be willing and able to walk long distances in very hot,
dry weather and to tolerate rustic accommodations. Previous field
experience with birds is a plus. Assistants must provide their own
airfare to Cameroon, however travel within Cameroon, room, and board
will be provided.
