We are currently recruiting survey assistants to work at one of our projects in South Africa. Positions will be for between 2 and 10 weeks, between June and August.
Survey assistants are responsible for coordinating field research in the bush in South Africa, taking an active role in leading school groups in data collection. The survey assistants should ensure a high quality of data collection and entry across all survey types and may also be involved in administering training, depending upon previous experience. While this is not a field guide position, the minimum requirement is FGASA Level 1 due to the environment in which the groups operate, and applicants should have a undergraduate degree or higher in biology/conservation or a related field.
In return, successful applicants receive full accommodation and food onsite, current and future research opportunities, networking and skills development, flight bursaries for more experienced candidates, and of course the opportunity to contribute towards long-term conservation efforts.
