Voluntariado de campo con ardillas en el Yukon, Canadá

*Field Assistants Required for 2020 Kluane Red Squirrel Project, Yukon,

* We are looking for field technicians to assist with fieldwork that will
run from February 8 to Oct 10 2020. We are looking for technicians for the
following different time periods: (a) February 7 to May 31 (b) March 1 to
May 31, (c) May 1 to July 1, or (d) Aug 15 to Oct 10. *

* The positions are part of a long-term study of red squirrel ecology,
evolutionary biology and physiology. As a member of the study, technicians
will be involved with monitoring the reproduction and survival of
individual squirrels. Fieldwork will involve live-trapping and handling of
squirrels, radio-telemetry, behavioural observation, and locating young in
their nests. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working
with a collaborative research team on a long-term study of a wild mammal.*

*All fieldwork is carried against the beautiful backdrop of southwestern
Yukon, Canada. We will be staying at a rustic field station two hours from
Whitehorse, and ~30 min to the nearest town (Haines Junction). All food and
accommodation are provided and technicians are provided with transportation
to and from the field site either through airfare or vehicle.*

Training will be provided and no experience is necessary. Candidates should
have an interest in a number of the following (the more the better!):
ecology, evolutionary biology, wildlife, field biology, and animal
behaviour. The field camp is remote and low tech (no showers, cell phone
service, or internet), so successful applicants must enjoy the outdoors and
be able to remain a positive and responsible team member under relatively
isolated and demanding conditions. Candidates must be in good physical
condition and have an enthusiasm for learning as well as a strong work
ethic. KRSP aims to be a welcoming, safe, and inclusive research group and
we strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups.
If you wish to apply for one of these posts then please fill out those
Google Form (https://forms.gle/gV3b9tHNAPN6rj367) by *January 31 2020* for
the spring positions (Feb-May). Application deadline for the autumn
(Aug-Oct) positions is rolling. Please feel free to contact us at
