Thailand Research Opportunity

Stony Brook University in New York are offering a fantastic opportunity to join a research project in the Phu Kieo Wildlife Sanctuary in Thailand.

As a Field Assistant, you will be studying the Behavioural Ecology of the Phayre’s Leaf Monkey, including socio-ecological models of group life, ecology of female social relationships, and sexual strategies. Basic accommodation will be arranged for you in the sanctuary, but most of your work will be conducted in the field and you must be prepared for elephants, bears, big cats, wild dogs and plenty of leeches, insects and spiders!

You must raise the initial travel costs yourself, but these can be refunded after 6 months. Applications must hold a BSc or equivalent in a relevant subject.

Research starts in August-October 2008, and the application deadline is 30th November 2007. For more information, contact Andreas Koenig at akoenig@notes.cc.sunysb.edu, or see the full job details and information at Primate-Jobs.
