The Primate Reintroduction Project aims to assess how reintroductions increase welfare for rescued and rehabilitated primates. We are looking for a motivated Primate Release Research Assistant who will conduct the pre-release data collection and monitoring phase of this project on a troop of vervet monkeys in preparation for their release into the wild in early 2019. This position is voluntary and will be based at the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. This position is perfect for someone who wants to gain research experience, especially with primates.


We are looking for someone to conduct field research for LWT’s Baboon Conservation Project. We are investigating if VMWR represents a hybrid zone between yellow baboons (Papio cynocephalus) and kinda baboons (Papio kindae), including reproductive success and growth and development markers. This will include creating a photographic database of individuals, identifying individuals, collecting fecal samples, and habituation of troops. This is a new project for LWT so we are looking for someone to help develop and implement this project.


We are looking for a veterinary clinical instructor who will be responsible for all the basic veterinary care of the animals at LWC, work closely with other members of the animal care team and provide training and supervision for veterinary students.
