Volunteer will help will running experiments in outdoor aviaries and analyzing behaviors. This internship will provide the volunteer a diverse experience on cognitive sciences, behavioural ecology and evolutionary biology. Additionally, being based at the Station of experimental Ecology of Moulis (SEEM) they will have the opportunity to discover one of the nicest and wildest area in the south of France.
Although some knowledge in ornithology and biology would be a plus, highly motivated applications from any field will be considered with high interest.
Duration of the internship is flexible from 2 weeks to 3 months, staring December 2015.
Volunteers will be under the direct supervision of Maxime Cauchoix (Post Doc, IAST) and will have the opportunity to collaborate with Alexis Chaine (Researcher, CNRS, SEEM).
