Field Course Instructors Wanted

If your specialty is in botany, primatology, ornithology, herpetology, entomology, or another related discipline, and you dream of returning to the field each year, we would like to invite you to apply to teach a field course at one of our locations in Peru or India.

This is an opportunity to reach a global pool of students, to design a course that highlights your interests and experience, and to make a meaningful contribution to conservation education. FPI will assist with course promotion, logistics, planning, and administering student enrollment. In addition, a local fixer will be provided to help with airport pickups and other transportation to the field site. All you will do is do what you love best - teach!

Take advantage of winter or summer breaks

We have unique field sites in the Peruvian Amazon and India's Western Ghats

Channel your creativity and develop activities centered on your area of expertise

 Field Projects International is a non-profit research and education organization seeking to create quality educational programs related to field biology and tropical ecology. We prioritize hands-on training over classroom lectures, and encourage our instructors to create syllabuses that take full advantage of our extraordinary field sites in order to develop activities that focus on research methods and not theory alone.

 We will consider instructors with varying levels of academic qualification, and we do not impose any citizenship restrictions. We have particular interest in those who have expertise in field research
methodologies, as well as those with experience teaching and/or working in the tropics. Instructors with advanced degrees will receive higher compensation, and in order to teach a course for credit instructors must have a Ph.D. or be a doctoral candidate.
