Capuchin monkey internship

I am seeking to fill 6 one-year internships over the course of the next year, the first of which is available starting in late Feb/early March 2011. Details about the position and application instructions are found on my website: Please read the detailed guide about working conditions BEFORE applying. The Lomas Barbudal Monkey Project is currently starting its 20th year and monitors 10 habituated social groups of monkeys for which genetic relationships and social relationship histories are known. The primary focus of current research is male migration decisions and female counter-strategies to infanticide. Field interns will collect behavioral data and assist in the processing of fecal samples for genetic and hormonal analysis. There is a rolling deadline for applications, but the stiffest competition is for the positions opening in the summer. Please apply 3 months in advance of your first possible start date if possible. For further information, read the publications listed on the website, or read the semi-popular book about the research project: Manipulative Monkeys: The Capuchins of Lomas Barbudal.
