Belize Mangrove Research - Field Volunteers

We are seeking 2 motivated field assistants for our red mangrove study in
Belize, Central America. This study focuses on the regeneration of red
mangroves on Turneffe Atoll. Volunteers will gain extensive field experience
working on a multi-faceted research project. Volunteers will learn about
mangrove and coral reef ecosystems and marine conservation in tropical
marine ecology.

Job will involve long working hours, and rustic living conditions in a
tropical environment (hot, humid weather, and biting insects). Assistants
will be spending periods of time on a boat moving between study sites.
Duties will include fieldwork to measure and collect seedling data as well
as data recording. There may be after-hours work involving shared data entry
and preparation for the following workday. It is essential to have a good
attitude, be ready and eager to learn, and always be willing to work hard,
have fun, and enjoy even the longest of field days. On short days there will
be opportunities for snorkeling and experiencing the coral reef ecosystem
around Turneffe Atoll.

- Applicants must know how to swim, be physically fit, and love the outdoors
- Undergraduate or recent collage graduate with coursework in ecology,
marine science, biology, environmental science and/or botany.
- Previous field experience preferred, tropical field experience a plus
- Navigational skills (map and GPS) a plus
- Familiarity with spreadsheet software
- Positive and flexible work ethic, and enthusiasm

June 12-24, 2009

This is a complete volunteer position, meaning that assistants will need to
pay for their plane tickets, accommodations, etc. This will cost roughly
~$1000 plus airfare.

TO APPLY: Please send a brief statement of interest, resume, unofficial copy
of transcript and references to Dr. Elise Granek at graneke@pdx.edu.
Deadline is rolling - ASAP, positions will be filled continuously.
