ReefDoctor is a coral reef research, education and conservation
organisation based in Ifaty, a small fishing village 22km north of
Toliara in SW Madagascar. We are primarily a research organisation and
conduct underwater surveys of coral reef fish, marine invertebrates, and
fishery species and land surveys of mangroves and the coastal lagoon
fishery. We also raise awareness in the local community of coral reef
health issues, destructive fishing techniques, marine protected areas
and teach English (at the request of the local fishermen). Please look
at our website for more information: www.reefdoctor.org

ReefDoctor currently requires 2 new science staff. The positions involve
frequent diving (all applicants must be at least PADI Advanced divers)
and requires applicants to be ready to live in basic conditions in a
small fishing village, working in a team of 4/6 UK and Malagasy staff
and students in a hot, tropical environment. Having enthusiasm for
marine science, a hardworking attitude and patience is essential.
Knowledge of underwater survey methodologies and having previous marine
research experience is necessary. Knowledge of west Indian Ocean marine
species would be very useful as would previous teaching experience (we
do have volunteers –four people every three months).

All applicants must be over 21, have at least moderate to advanced
French speaking abilities and have a driving license. ReefDoctor is an
equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from all
