Description:
The project is open for students interested in pursuing a Bachelor or Master’s degree and who would like to gain experience both in fieldwork and analytical approaches. We are looking for a highly motivated student who can start by end of April 2022. The student will be based in the lab of Sandra Bouwhuis (twitter.com/CommonTerns), and will do fieldwork at the Banter See in Wilhelmshaven (Germany).

The student will participate in the general monitoring of the breeding population and can be involved in (i) behavioural observations, (ii) reproductive checks, (iii) blood sampling using bloodsucking bugs, (iv) ring reading and (v) general colony maintenance. The fieldwork can be demanding but is shared within a team and will involve many close interactions with the birds. Prior experience with birds or fieldwork is appreciated, but not required. The student will be working in a highly dynamic and international team, and should be comfortable using English as the main working language.

Interested students are invited to get in contact with Dr Maria Moiron (mariamoironc@gmail.com) and Dr Sandra Bouwhuis (sandra.bouwhuis@ifv-vogelwarte.de). A brief motivation statement and/or CV will be appreciated.
