Fostering and furthering careers in conservation

Get in touch


    We are passionate about developing conservation capacity by providing employment opportunities, internships and volunteer positions to both local and international students. Field staff can receive training in behavioral sampling methods using current apps, biological sample collection for microbiome and parasitological analysis, genomic and noninvasive endocrinological analysis, population survey techniques, and social science methods. Field staff also have the opportunity to develop their own projects and participate in the publication process.

    Currently, KPCRC and SLEP are seeking to hire a Field Research and Operations Manager that will serve functions in both projects. The projects share a field camp near Dambulla that acts as a hub for laboratory activities, data storage, and living and dining quarters for staff. The Field Research and Operations Manager will be responsible for coordinating the day-to-day activities at the camp for both projects, including data collection and management, basic laboratory functions, project administration, and camp operations.

    Application deadline is 26 April 2024. For more information, please click here.
