Intern position at Marwell Wildlife – final call

Marwell Wildlife is offering a short term opportunity to work alongside our Sustainability Manager and contribute to a study of learning in schoolchildren on educational visits to Marwell Zoo.

School groups visiting Marwell Zoo on formal educational visits were invited to take part in an evaluation exercise consisting of drawing pictures of their favourite animal in what they imagine to be its natural habitat, before and after their visit. This significant study generated just over 1,000 pairs of pre and post visit data sheets. Marwell now needs to analyse these drawings for changes in detail and accuracy before and after the visit. We have an opportunity for an intern to assist with this analysis and gain experience in producing quantitative data from qualitative information. While training will be given, interpretation of young children’s writing and drawing can be difficult, hence some experience of working with children might be an advantage.

The intern should be available to attend Marwell 10am – 4pm one day per week. Own transport will be needed as the zoo is not accessible by public transport during the autumn / winter period and travel expenses to and from Southampton will be met by Marwell.

If you are interested, please send me your CV and covering letter by replying to this email (information about how to produce both of these is available on the undergraduate information site on blackboard and also on the Career Destinations website) by 5pm on Friday 24th October.
