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 camp managers for our research sites at various locations. We have vacancies available for between 4-8 weeks within the months of June and early August. Possible locations include: Indonesia, Mexico and Honduras. Information on all our sites is available on our website.

Camp managers are responsible for the day to day running of field camps, including maintaining regular communications with the main base camp, ordering supplies and ensuring the science teams have the guides and equipment needed to run surveys. Applicants should have experience of working in the field, good communication and organisational skills and preferably a biological background. At least a basic understanding of Spanish is a must for some sites.

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