Student projects in International Conservation Biology

Research within the Conservation Science Section at the Centre, seeks to undertake targeted studies that address issues of relevance to international nature conservation, in particular those related to biodiversity and climate change.

We are looking for students interested to conduct Bachelor, independent and Master projects on conservation science, biodiversity, conservation policy etc.

We expect you to have good writing skills, attention to detail, self-motivations, maturity and be able to work independently.

Example of student projects

  • Analysis of wildlife trade data using the CITES trade database
  • Analysis of signals of illegal wildlife trade in legal trade data (CITES trade database)
  • Analysis of evidence for how the Sustainable Use of species might (or might not) have contributed or not to their conservation
  • Evidence for the success of protected areas at achieving conservation at different scales
  • The development of indicators of progress towards the Convention of Biological Diversity global conservation targets
  • Evidence for the impact of conservation interventions in the field in Tanzania (Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forests)

Also, we welcome conservation project ideas from the students themselves.
