Volunteer Research Assistant on Lizards in the Spanish Pyrenees

We are seeking a motivated volunteer research assistant to conduct behavioral research in summer 2016 in Jaca (Spanish Pyrenees). The project will take place at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (IPE, CSIC) in Jaca, Spain and will involve both field and laboratory work.

The starting date of the project is early June and it will last until mid-August. During this time you will conduct behavioral experiments on the common lizard, Zootoca vivipara. The project includes captures in natural populations, measurements, running behavioral experiments and regular inspection of lizards in the laboratory. The project could also involve statistical analyses and writing of a manuscript for a potential publication.

We are looking for a biology graduate student, preferentially with a MSc, who wants to gain research experience in Behavioral Ecology. Candidates should have good organizational skills, be independent, have a good work ethic and have a sincere and active interest in the project. You must be comfortable with handling reptiles and like doing field work. Fluency in English is required and Spanish language skills are useful, but this is not essential.

In summer, Jaca is a vibrant touristic city at the base of the Spanish Pyrenees, close to the Pyrenees French national park. We will offer the possibility of accommodation in a shared house with other members of the laboratory in Jaca.

Please send your application including your CV and a short letter outlining your motivation (max. 1 A4 page) to Dr. Joshka Kaufmann ([email protected]).
