Tentador contrato de dos años estudiando biodiversidad en el Amazonas peruano

We seek a tropical field biologist with an interest in Amazonian biodiversity and its response to climate change. This is a 2-year position based in the Peruvian Amazon, with possibilities for extension and career development in a startup conservation and science NGO.

A successful candidate will have demonstrated expertise studying biodiverse species assemblages. The candidate must have proficiency with statistics in R and be able to implement statistical models using both Bayesian and frequentist methods. The successful candidate will have demonstrated ability to work with large data sets and computationally complex tasks. Experience with AI and machine learning a plus.

The position is integrated into a team of 12-15 people in the field ranging from experienced PhD level to graduate student and undergraduate assistants drawn from Peru, Colombia, Europe, and North America. The working languages are English and Spanish.

This is not a routine 9-5 job. It is ideal for a driven individual who wants to build a career in this field based on a high level of productivity and creativity. You must possess a passion for field ecology. A highly developed work ethic coupled with the ability to complete a project and publish the results are paramount. Candidates must be willing to frequently provide frequent progress updates.
