Subject: PWRC Seaduck Care and Research Internship

The USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center is seeking qualified applicants
for 1-2 part-time animal care interns with the Sea Bird Research Program in
Laurel, MD.
We are looking to fill these positions ASAP. This internship involves
assisting with animal care and research at a captive colony of seaducks.
There will also be ample opportunities for interns to get involved with the
training of ducklings for ongoing behavioral studies.  The colony consists of
9 different species including diving and dabbling ducks. Primary
responsibilities include:

•	Assisting with daily care of ducklings and adult birds
•	Assisting in behavioral training techniques
•	Performing maintenance/cleaning tasks as assigned
•	Conducting behavioral observations

The ideal applicant will have experience working with animals, be interested
in biological research, and be willing to work hard outside in all weather
conditions. The internship is part time and requires a minimum of 30 hours a
week.  For students returning to college, there can be an option to lower the
amount of hours, once classes start. Course credit through your University
may be possible with approval from your academic department. Applicants must
provide their own transportation to and from the center.

These positions offer an excellent opportunity for qualified and motivated
individuals to obtain animal care and research experience under the
mentorship of U.S. Geological Survey researchers. Students and recent
graduates are encouraged to apply.  We will be reviewing the applications and
filling the vacancies as they come in.  If you are interested, please send a
resume, a schedule of available work hours and a brief letter of interest to:
