Please beware of scammers

As an international platform, Globalplacement is prone to attract those who try to scam people out of their money. For example by promising an internship abroad, but requiring a payment up front for their services. In some cases this might be for legitamite reasons, but always be very very vigilant.

Even though we try our very best to keep our platform free of abuse, we can't garantuee we'll never miss anything. If you see any suspicious vacancies on our website, please do report them by reaching out to us. Never transfer money or share your bank account/credit card details with anyone unless you're absolutely sure it is safe to do so (in which case it is always at your own risk).

Job description

The project provides opportunities for students, interns, and volunteers to gain field experience and develop research skills. Our research focuses on human-wildlife interactions and conflict. Our area is host to a variety of free-roaming wildlife species which means farmers can experience loss of livestock, game, or damage to crops, leading to human-wildlife conflict. Our project aims to find ways of improving this relationship and ensure the survival of wildlife species outside of protected areas. Furthermore, we aim to assess how living in a human-dominated landscape can affect biodiversity, species behaviour and diet.


Students at the AWCRC partake in a broad spectrum of activities related to the study of animals and their habitats. These include tasks that include but are not limited to the following :

  • Monitoring of animal behaviour and movement through the deployment of camera traps.
  • Data gathering and fieldwork activities through direct observation
  • Data Analysis
