We are looking for an instructor to teach Marine Behavioural Ecology (July 2-19, 2019). This course offers a hands-on introduction to some of the key concepts and principles of behavioural ecology through lectures, labs, and extensive field activities. Students often learn the basics through a series of day-long ‘mini-projects’, and then carry out an extensive, multi-component, group-oriented research project with a focus on marine invertebrates. Students participate in all aspects of the research, from project planning, experimental design, and data collection (in the field and laboratory) to analysis, and writing.
