Peru's biodiversity includes more than 20,500 species of plants and more than 5,500 species of animals; therefore, the country needs more scientists to study, manage and protect our biodiversity. Regardless of the major being pursued by the applicants, they need to have basic knowledge in ecology. Knowledge of common used field and laboratories techniques and statistics are desired, but not mandatory. In the past years, topics such as population biology, phylogenetic, fisheries studies and conservation were developed in the internship.
For more information on previous projects developed during the internship, please refer to the Magazine.
