college summer job, AZ lizard project

Post by Jimi » March 20th, 2013, 7:49 pm

From an email I got today:

Please share this with any undergraduates who may be interested in some hot summer herp work!

Flat-tailed Horned Lizard Occupancy study in the Yuma Desert of Arizona, oh yeah. Internships last much of the summer and pay 11$/hourly for newcomers and 12$/hourly for returning interns. A great opportunity to get your feet wet in lizard work and become familiar with some pretty amazing Sonoran desert herps.

Please see the announcement at the following website and forward all information requests to Milani Barron at (623) 236-7319. ... hips.shtml

See you out there!

I wouldn't count on any wet feet! Sounds like a roaster, but a blast.

It sounds like an interesting gig for sure, but housing is not included, which is pretty ridiculous for an internship.

LOL... I got this same e-mail back in 2004 before I moved to Colima... it was a consideration, but let me say that Colima was more fun! Interesting to see they are still doing it.
