Description:

SUMMARY

We are currently recruiting Ornithologists and Chiropterologists for our research sites at various locations around the world. We have vacancies available for between 4-8 weeks within the months of June and early August 2019.

OUTLINE

Operation Wallacea (Opwall - https://www.opwall.com/about-opwall/) is a conservation research organisation that is funded by, and relies on, teams of student volunteers who join expeditions for the opportunity to work on real-world research programmes alongside academic researchers. To date, Opwall research has led to the publication of over 440 peer reviewed papers.

Our Ornithologists and Chiropterologists are responsible for carrying out surveys on their respective taxa as part of a large-scale monitoring programme.

Applicants for the position of Ornithologist should have experience of working in the field, biological undergraduate degree level or higher (or other relevant experience), point count, bird mist netting and handling experience. Please include in your application any information about ringing permits you currently possess or are working towards, although those without can still apply as we do have roles that are point-count only.

Applicants for the position of Chiropterologist should have experience of working in the field, a biological undergraduate degree or higher (or other relevant experience), and experience in mist-netting and handling of bats.

Some field sites are remote, facilities are basic and the environments are challenging so experience of similar conditions are favourable. Please highlight any relevant outdoor leadership or teaching qualifications.

Worldwide locations available including Fiji, Indonesia, Croatia, Tanzania, Malawi, Dominica, Ecuador, Guyana, Honduras, Madagascar, Mexico, Peru, South Africa and Transylvania.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Contracts run for 4-8 weeks during the months of June, July and August. Exact dates are dependent on the specific country schedule. Positions are voluntary but includes full accommodation and food onsite, networking and skills development and flight bursaries for more experienced applicants. Positions are filled as suitable candidates apply so prompt application is advised.
