Description We are looking for enthusiastic master students with an interest in behavioural ecology for a project aiming to study the effect of predation pressure on wild Trinidadian guppies (poecilia reticulata).

You should be prepared to work long hours in a hot climate, help with some household tasks, and ideally you have a valid driver’s license (but not essential).
It’s promised to be an amazing fieldwork experience, the guppy populations of Trinidad are a classic and fascinating system to study behavioural ecology and evolution and Trinidad’s northern range is a beautiful and biodiverse landscape!
