Closing date: Sunday, 1st March 2020  

Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes across 13 countries worldwide.

We are currently recruiting reef ecology lecturers to work at various locations across South & Central America, Africa, Europe & Asia. Positions will be from four to eight weeks between June and early August, and information on all our sites is available on the 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.

The positions will be filled as and when we find suitable candidates so if you are interested please apply as soon as you can to give yourself the best chance. The positions do involve working with minors so if successful you will be asked to complete a background check.
