Proyecto Washu is an Ecuadorian organization dedicated to biodiversity conservation since 2012. During this time we have worked on different strategies for the conservation of the brown-headed spider monkey (Ateles fusciceps fusciceps) and its habitat (the Ecuadorian Choco). Among our projects is the research program on ecology and behavior of this species and other primates in the Ateles Manabí Reserve in Ecuador.

In order to continue contributing to the research and conservation of primates in the Ecuadorian coast, we are currently looking for a coordinator and principal investigator of the scientific research program of the Ateles Manabí Reserve. This position offer is focused on the research of wild primate populations of Brown headed spider monkeys (Ateles fusciceps fusciceps), Mantled Howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata aequatorialis) and the Ecuadorian white fronted capuchin monkeys (Cebus aequatorialis) distributed in a fragmented landscape of the Manabí Province in the northwest of Ecuador. In addition, the person selected for this position will actively participate in other conservation strategies that the foundation carries out within the reserve and other areas of impact, and will also be in charge of coordinating volunteers and thesis students under his or her responsibility.
