Operation Wallacea


Volunteer • Full Time

Closing date: Not specified, apply soon!

Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes across 15 research sites worldwide. We are currently recruiting reef ecology lecturers for our research sites at various locations. We have vacancies available from 4-8 weeks between the months of June and early August. Possible locations include: Indonesia, Mexico and Honduras. Information on all our sites is available on our website.

The position will involve giving a series of ecology and conservation based lectures to school students aged 16-18 at our field research stations. The successful applicant may also be required to give practicals in survey methodologies and techniques. Applicants should have experience of working in the field, be at least masters level in a biology based subject and have teaching experience.

Ideally the candidate will be a dive master, although this is not essential if they have enough relevant marine knowledge.

In return, successful applicants receive full accommodation and food onsite, potential current and future research opportunities, networking and skills development, flight bursaries for more experienced scientists, and of course the opportunity to contribute towards long-term conservation efforts.
