Kalahari Meerkat Project
University of Cambridge/ Universität Zürich

12-month positions starting August 2016
 More info -
The Kalahari Meerkat Project is a long-term field project investigating the ecological causes and evolutionary consequences of cooperative breeding. We are looking for volunteer field assistants to spend one year at our study site in the South African Kalahari Desert, collecting behavioural data on our habituated meerkat population.
Accommodation and food will be provided, and we will contribute 4800ZAR (£250 equivalent) towards expenses following successful completion of the 12 month field season.
Successful applicants usually have a good degree in the biological sciences and will be enthusiastic, hardworking and physically fit. As it takes some time to learn the necessary field skills, we will only consider volunteers who are able to stay for a full 12 months. We are also only able to accept volunteers who have a driving licence. We are currently short-listing applicants to start from August 2016.
