Volunteer Herp Field Assistant
"A field assistant is needed for amphibian work in Singapore, to start immediately lasting through 31 March (ending date subject to change). This is part of a PhD project examining reproductive variation in wide-ranging frog species. Duties will include: early morning searches for and counting of eggs, capturing, measuring, and marking adults, and recording frog calls at night. Field assistants will be required to work 2-3 days per week. Exact days are flexible but must be spread over the week.
The field sites of this project are the Mandai Orchid Garden and Singapore Zoological Gardens, with other sites as needed. Entrance to field sites will be arranged by the project coordinator, and all field work is approved by the required institutions.
Successful applicants must have the ability to delicately handle small organisms (several of our study species are less than 25mm), good eyesight in low light conditions, be able to work independently and as part of a team, and an enthusiasm for frog field work in adverse weather. Past field or outdoor experience is a plus but not essential.
Please submit a CV, current list of references, and cover letter expressing your interest in this position to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
