Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes across 13 countries worldwide.

We are currently recruiting schools’ coordinators to work at various locations across South & Central America, Africa, Europe & Asia. Positions will be from four to eight weeks between June and early August, and information on all our sites is available on the website.

The position will involve working with teachers and 16 – 18-year-old students in the field to create and ensure schedules are implemented, assist in explaining various survey techniques and the aims and objectives of Operation Wallacea at that research site, be a main point of contact for any questions and queries and provide a degree of pastoral care.
