Field Research Opportunities for Peterhouse Biologists

The opportunity provided by long summer vacation enables students to gain first-hand experience of research by assisting field projects. Links have been established with some field projects that are willing to take on Peterhouse students over the summer, and other projects can be found if students have specific interests. Existing projects include research on breeding biology in lizards and turtles in Florida and Australia, and the ecology of wildcats in Spain. A significant part of the costs of these field opportunities may be covered by Peterhouse travel grants.

Florida

Investigating lizard and turtle ecology.

Spain

Investigating the interactions between wildcats and domestic cats, including observation of wild animals, and collecting samples to investigate transmission of domestic cat diseases to wildcats.
