Conducting Research with SOCP

We at SOCP are always looking for motivated researchers to come to Indonesia and participate at one of our three long-term monitoring stations in the Sumatran provinces of Aceh and North Sumatra.

Specific positions sought will be posted on the Primate Info Net - Positions Available page, with some general information on SOCP research available here and here.

However, we also invite unsolicited field researchers to contact us directly. While we focus our monitoring activities on orangutans, we are always open to have researchers who are interested in other aspects of Sumatran flora and fauna.
