Looking for a student for wolf studies... the Wildpark Schloss Tambach, Weitramsdorf bei Coburg, Germany
We are currently looking for one student for a 5-6 months long research project starting as soon as possible.
The projects will involve observational work on a pack of 34 European wolves living at Wildpark Schloss Tambach (Germany), collecting data on the social interaction of the wolves in the pack, and coding the behaviour from videos, together with a Research Assistant already familiar with the pack.
Students will learn:
  • Wolf behavior
  • Live and video observation methods
  • Potentially some initial statistics and
  • if interested will participate in writing up of potential manuscript resulting from the project
Students may use the data collected for the project as Master or undergraduate thesis, but interns are also welcome to apply. Accommodation is basic (but in the park, so the location is very convenient) and shared with the research assistant.
Supervisors: Sarah Marshall-Pescini ( and Friederike Range (, Messerli Research Institute, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Wolf Science Centre, Austria.
Please send letter of interest and CV to Sarah Marshall-Pescini. A decision will be made by the end of March 2017, with a start date of mid April.
