Student Carpenter – Casual Basis

The Animal Minds Lab at the University of Auckland is seeking a student carpenter to undertake several small projects of custom-building research equipment.

These will involve objects such as movable barriers, custom-sized wooden boxes of varying sizes, and wooden trays, amongst others. Mostly this will involve using plywood or light timber. An ability to work with other materials, for example making small moving electrical parts, is an advantage.

We require items to be made to tight deadlines and accurately.

All work will be on a casual basis, with the student working as a freelancer for the lab and set up as a supplier for the University of Auckland.
