Do I need special qualifications to apply?

There are no ‘special’ qualifications that are necessary to apply for a position. However, many applicants have completed an undergraduate degree in a relevant field (such as Biology, Zoology, Conservation, or Psychology), but this is not a prerequisite. Most successful applicants have some fieldwork experience, but again, this is not necessary to get a position. We usually aim to take applicants who are committed, enthusiastic and could benefit from spending a year on a behavioural ecology project; these are usually people who have recently graduated from a degree and are thinking of pursuing a career in academia or a related field and would like to gain research experience.
