We do not have any openings at this time.
Post-Graduate Research Placements
In addition to our volunteer programme, we also offer a limited number of 3 month research placements for post-graduates. Candidates must be a minimum of MSc level. MWSRP will select the best candidates to explore either preset topics or viable (within the scope of our operation and survey transects) research proposals. Successful candidates selected by the MWSRP scientific advisory board will have access to the MWSRP dataset as well as carrying out field work in which to collect data themselves. Candidates must be able to cover their travel, visa and contribute towards living costs. They must also be willing to assist the infield team as needed. For those without the means to travel to our study site there are often topics that can be explored remotely so please feel free to register your interest along with a CV and cover letter.
Opportunities for Maldivian Nationals
Each year we advertise a limited number of 3 month paid internship positions for Maldivian nationals. We are looking for young, enthusiastic Maldivians that are interested in learning more about marine sciences, conservation, and research. You might be a school leaver, you might be someone who is looking to switch careers. If you fit this description and would like to discuss the possibility of interning with us, please feel free to contact us. We will likely request a CV and cover letter from you so have these ready. Please note our paid internships are made possible through the generosity of sponsors and therefore do not follow a fixed schedule. If there are no internship openings we will likely refer you to our volunteer programme. See below.
MWSRP has always had a policy of offering free volunteering opportunities for Maldivian nationals. If you can get to Dhigurah and put yourself up on the island then you can join in with the programme’s activities for a few days or up to 2 weeks. Please contact us to express your interest and we will work hard to fine a mutually convenient time for you to join us. This is a fantastic opportunity to get a flavour for what we’re about. Strong volunteers will always be considered for internships and other vacancies.
