Research Assistants Required!

Unpaid Opportunity (Accommodation and Food Covered)

I’m a PhD Student from the UK researching frogs in Peninsular Malaysia. I am need of a research assistant to help me with fieldwork between 1st April – mid-November 2020. I cannot afford to cover flights but can cover accommodation and food during fieldwork. I’m looking for someone with an interest in herpetology and experience in tropical forests who can stay for 2-3 months minimum.


We’ll mostly be staying at hotels and research stations (not too extreme), though there is the possibility of some camping later in the year. Daily activities will involve forest recces, night and day transect surveys, digging and checking pitfall traps.


Please email me at C.W.Butler(at)soton(dot)ac(dot)uk with details of your experience and when you’d be available. Email me with any questions and for further information. Thanks!
