Reneco International Wildlife Consultants: paid short-term research assistant position in Morocco.

We are urgently seeking a short-term research assistant to help conduct behavioural testing in a captive-bred population of North African houbara bustards (Chlamydotis undulata undulata) at the Emirates Centre for Wildlife Propagation (ECWP) in Missour, Morocco. The succesful applicant will join an ongoing research project exploring links between individual behaviour, post-release movements and survival. The assistant tasks will involve behavioural testing of houbara bustards under captive conditions and possibly in the wild, to assess individual personality traits. Data entry and video analysis will also be part of required duties.

The position should start beginning of March 2023, with a duration of up to three months, depending on candidate availability. Besides a monthly salary commensurate with experience, travel expenses, onsite accommodation and food will also be covered.

Successful applicants should ideally have:
  • Completed at least three years of undergraduate studies in animal behaviour/ethology or a closely related field. Experience with field/lab research is highly desirable.
  • Experience with testing and handling of animals, preferably birds.
  • Fluency in both English and French languages.
  • Excellent organizational skills and ability to work both independently and in a team.
  • Attention to detail and ability to closely follow and implement
  • experimental protocols.
  • Data entry proficiency and, ideally, experience in video analysis
