Looking to kick-start a career in Primatology?
Primatology is a highly specialised field and as such there is considerable competition for the limited number of paid positions and PhD’s available. If you are hoping for an exciting and rewarding career in Primatology and need more experience to realize your dream, we have the ideal position for you!
CERCOPAN is currently seeking a voluntary Primate Co-ordinator based at Rhoko Forest. The Primate Co-ordinator supervises captive primate care and wild primate research at the site, and manages all local staff associated with these programmes. Specific duties include dietary monitoring, environmental enrichment, collection and analysis of behavioural, phenological and rainfall data, environmental education and teaching on our annual primate and rainforest conservation field course . The Primate Coordinator also produces proposals and reports for all of our Rhoko primate related work.
Our ideal candidate has a masters degree in a relevant subject and is ready and able to commit to at least one year with the organisation. Previous experience in the tropics is desirable, as is research experience. For a one year commitment we are able to provide food, lodgings and in-country visa provisions. Flights, insurance and initial visa are the responsibility of the volunteer. A stipend will be provided for those signing up for a 2 year position.
