Chilean undergraduates

We invite Chilean undergraduate students to pursue research with us in the Juan Fernández Islands. Students assist with our central research objectives while conducting supervised research for their undergraduate thesis. The students work alongside professional biologists, learning skills and techniques of field biology (including data collection, research design and execution, and teamwork), while also developing and pursuing a personal research endeavor. Please contact us ( with a letter of interest and curriculum vitae if you are interested in this experience.

Research Opportunities

If you are interested in collaborative efforts pursuing basic research, applied conservation, or environmental education in the archipelago and have independent funding or solid ideas for sources of funding, please contact us at

Field Assistants

Each year we may have opportunities for volunteer field assistants interested in working with us. Work and conditions can be difficult, but the experience is extremely rewarding for someone enthusiastic about field work in a bilingual environment and amazing island system. Please contact us with a letter of interest and resume at if you are interested in this experience.
