Undergraduate Work Study Position

We are seeking undergraduate work study students to assist in our long-term research on the behavioral ecology of the chimpanzees of Gombe National Park, Tanzania. More than 50 years of data on this population, made famous by Jane Goodall, are now housed at Duke University. Duties will include (1) scanning of data sheets that arrive from the field, and (2) entry of data from behavioral check-sheets and maps using customized computer programs.

Desired qualities include attention to detail, patience, familiarity with Microsoft Access and a background/interest in behavioral ecology, primatology and/or anthropology.

Hours are flexible, but must be able to work at least 7 hours/week. Minimum of one semester commitment.

All undergraduates with an interest in primatology/evolutionary anthropology are encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Steffen Foerster (sf153@duke.edu).
