To those interested below are some details of research opportunities for PrimatesPeru. Click the link for some more specifics.
We offer a field course in both the early and late summer, as well as research assistantships in a variety of ongoing and long-term research programs, with opportunities to assist in writing publications with the Principal Investigators upon completion of the program. Topics range from studying animal behavior to their reproductive biology, predator-prey dynamics, and health.
Some opportunities begin in Summer 2014 (with fast-approaching deadlines), while others will run year-round (with rolling deadlines). There are programs that should be of interest to current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as seniors who are graduating this May and would like to get field experience in their gap year. Both the course and the research assistantships can be taken for credit from the student’s own university, in collaboration with us.
All of our programs are conducted at the Los Amigos Biological Field Station – a place of remarkable biodiversity and beauty in southeastern Peru.
Thank you for helping to share these opportunities.
