The Nature Conservancy is seeking a volunteer or graduate student (who is not subject to finals this semester) to assist in an upcoming meeting, the Coral Assembly in San Juan, Puerto Rico, December 8-9.  This is a regional assembly of coral reef managers, researchers and regulators from Puerto Rico, US and British Virgin Islands.

We'd like to provide the opportunity for a graduate student or others with coral reef career interests to attend the meeting, work with the Conservancy staff assist in making a compilation of USVI/Puerto Rico and BVI relevant information regarding management of coral reefs, note taking during the meeting, and assist in producing the proceedings from the Assembly.

I am anticipating this would require a few weeks of prep time (flexible time), more intense involvement in the week of the Assembly (December 5-9), assistance with note taking and meeting logistics during the meeting (December 8-9) and then some follow-up reporting following the assembly, so about 2-3 months total.  If it seems this will constitute an internship for credit, we can work with the student on that. Otherwise, is good exposure and opportunity in exchange for some volunteer time.

We would be able to support travel to St. Croix for a few strategic meetings before and after the Assembly, housing and per diem while here, plus Assembly expenses paid.

Please contact me with a statement of interest in a cover letter and a CV if interested!
Thank you,
