Voluntary primate research assistants – Bristol Zoological Society

Lemur Bootcamp’ is a novel and exciting research project run by Bristol Zoological Society. It aims to assess whether zoo-housed lemurs have the cognitive skills to be able to survive and thrive if they were reintroduced. In order to do this, we are designing foraging and spatial cognitive tasks for socially-housed zoo lemurs, and measuring their responses to these tasks. The principle investigator is Dr. Fay Clark, Lecturer in Animal Behaviour & Welfare.

This year, we are recruiting 2-4 volunteer primate research assistants (VPRAs) to participate on the project at Bristol Zoo’s sister zoo, Wild Place Project, between June and August 2018.

Interested students should see the further information document for details on how to apply. The closing deadline for applications will be midnight on Friday 27th April 2018.
