LWT can facilitate postgraduate research outside of our existing projects. You are welcome to
propose any topic and any site in Malawi, and a list of suggested research questions is available upon request.
DURATION: 1-24 months
QUALIFICATION REQUIRED: Studying for an MSc, MRes or PhD
Staff can help to coordinate logistics and provide support for these projects, but the researcher must be able to work independently. In addition to accommodation, food and airport transfers, LWT can provide the research camp, vehicle access, equipment, project idea development, and support liaising with the Department of National Parks & Wildlife. All requirements need to be discussed and agreed with the research team before arrival.
