2017-09-26

Position Description:
I am looking for a position that will strengthen my skills with primate husbandry. My passions, as well as the areas of which I have experience in, include primate rehabilitation, enrichment, care, reintroduction, and any job that involves any of those characteristics would help me to reach my future goals. As a recent graduate my goals are to contribute to primate conservation. I am hoping to one day either complete a master\'s degree in primate behavior, a doctorate in veterinary sciences, or focus on a career in my field. I want a position that I will learn from and which will help me grow as a primatologist. Likewise, I am a hard worker and have spent extensive time abroad and would feel at home at a sanctuary or research site. I prefer working with people, especially those with more experience and knowledge than I have.
