This project in Costa Rica is looking for Research Assistants for its green sea turtle monitoring program. Research Assistants will be trained in sea turtle monitoring techniques and work under the supervision of field coordinators. Research Assistants are responsible for tagging nesting turtles, collecting biometric data from females, recording nesting activity during track surveys, and other pertinent data collection.
Past Research Assistants have gone on to work for conservation organizations, universities and government agencies worldwide.
Research Assistants are needed from early June to late August, 2021 (Group 1) and mid-August to early November, 2021 (Group 2). The application deadline is March 12, 2021.
Research Assistants receive free board and lodging for the entire duration of their stay at the field station.
