The hihi conservation project ( is looking for someone to help with microsatellite genotyping of around 800 hihi (stitchbird; Notiomystis cincta) blood and feather samples. The work will take around 4 weeks full time, hopefully from around mid October. We are happy to discuss working part time (although it would be great to have the samples done by the end of the year). The labwork will be based at the Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London, in the lovely Regent’s Park.

For more details please contact Patricia Brekke ( or Anna Santure (
