Field Assistant Opportunity: 2 field assistants are needed for fieldwork for a PhD student's dissertation from the Complex System Laboratory (University de Montreal).
Fieldwork involves baleen whales behaviour data collection from a land-based station at the Saint Lawrence estuary, Quebec (Canada). The field season will run for 2 months, August and September. Assistants will be expected to work 6 days per week, for up to 10 hours at a time. Black flies are often present. Days off are usually taken in raining days.
Prior experience working on cetaceans and land-based observations is preferred but not required. Those with no experience should demonstratetheir willingness to learn. Familiarity with spreadsheet software; positive and flexible work ethic, and enthusiasm are essential.
This is not a paid position. Assistants will have housing and breakfast (arranged with a Hostel next to the observation site). Assistants will need to pay for their plane tickets to Montreal or Quebec. Priority will be given to applicants who can stay for the duration - a minimum commitment of one month is required.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a motivation letter and a CV before May 1st. Be specific about how much time you can commit to.
