Last Date to Apply
Volunteer research assistant needed for a field-based research project in Costa Rica during Summer 2019 (beginning of June – beginning of July). The project is the focus of my M.S. thesis research at John Carroll University in the lab of Dr. Ralph A. Saporito, which involves the study of variation in chemical defenses and maternal provisioning in the strawberry poison frog, Oophaga pumilio. Fieldwork will largely involve behavioral observations and collection of frogs and tadpoles. The project will involve working at La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica, but may also include travel to other sites in Costa Rica.
I am looking for a hardworking individual, preferably with a scientific background, who is interested in gaining research experience in the tropics. This assistantship will require long days in the field, so applicants must be in good physical condition and willing to work outside in the forest. To apply, please email a single document that includes a brief cover letter describing your interests, CV, personal contact information, and the contact information for two references to Olivia Brooks (obrooks21@jcu.edu) by March 15, 2019.
