Research Opportunities for Peterhouse Biologists

Many students use the long summer vacation to develop experience outside of their taught courses, often gaining first-hand experience of research by assisting research projects in Cambridge or elsewhere. Peterhouse has good links to laboratory researchers in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and evolutionary ecology, and suitable placements matching a student's interests can usually be found. For those interested in field biology rather than lab work there are opportunities to assist in ongoing research projects in Spain, Florida, Australia and elsewhere, working on wildcats and reptiles. Each year there is also a place for a student on a research programme in Madagascar monitoring biodiversity and carrying out their own research project.
