Live and learn at the Para La Tierra Ecological Research Station in the beautiful wetlands of Neembucu. An exciting position with all onsite expenses covered and full training in field biology techniques provided. This full-time position involves coordinating and leading groups of volunteers and interns in carrying out scientific projects which contribute to the conservation of the surrounding habitats. Two six month contracts are available for immediate start (April/May 2018), as well as rolling applications to fill new positions every six months. Please apply at any time. While the post comes with no monetary renumeration, full bed and board will be provided with free WiFi.

Very little is known about Paraguay’s biodiversity and ecology. Through this position you’ll have the opportunity to explore relatively unknown habitats and have the chance to discover new species. Trained by our expert team and Scientific Director, you’ll spend your days in the field facilitating data collection.  Para La Tierra’s projects ultimately support conservation of fragile habitats in Paraguay which are disappearing quickly due to expansion of agriculture. You’ll learn everything there is to know about the neo-tropics, and will be given the opportunity to contribute to the publication of any significant findings.

To apply you must have a degree in life sciences and be able to demonstrate a passion for nature, with a talent for inspiring others. You should also be able to provide examples of leadership skills and the ability to work unsupervised, and excellent character references. This is a great opportunity for budding scientists to learn and gain experience while living abroad, and a great stepping stone to a paid position in field biology. Conservation biology projects you’ll be in charge of leading include: small mammal population monitoring, camera trapping, mapping, invertebrate inventories and amphibian and reptile ecology. Expect to be busy for most of the day and work hard!

Applications welcome from any background or nationality, must be 23 years old or older, physically fit and able to speak English. Please email Karina@ParaLaTierra.org with a CV or resume, cover letter and three references (academic, professional and personal).
