Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes across 13 countries worldwide.
We are currently recruiting camp managers to work at various locations across South & Central America, Africa, Europe & Asia. Positions will be from four to eight weeks between June and early August, and information on all our sites is available on the website.
Camp managers are responsible for the day to day running of field camps, including maintaining regular communications with the main base camp, ordering supplies and ensuring the science teams have the guides and equipment needed to run surveys. Applicants should have experience of working in the field, good communication and organisational skills and preferably a biological background. At least a basic understanding of Spanish is a must for some sites.
In return, successful applicants receive full accommodation and food onsite, networking and skills development, flight bursaries for more experienced scientists, and of course the opportunity to contribute towards long-term conservation efforts.
The positions will be filled as and when we find suitable candidates so if you are interested please apply as soon as you can to give yourself the best chance. The positions do involve working with minors so if successful you will be asked to complete a background check.
