International Course for Primatology and Wildlife Research
The Primate Research Institute (PRI) in Inuyama and the Wildlife Research Center (WRC) in Kyoto promote basic and applied research by synthesizing various approaches to enhance our understanding of all primates and other wildlife. A new international course for graduate students focusing on the study of non-human primates and other animals, with the aim of promoting their conservation, health and welfare, as well as advancing our understanding of human nature, started in April 2011. Students in this course will join either the PRI or WRC and receive courses conducted in English.
The course will be managed by the Center for International Collaboration and Advanced Studies in Primatology (CICASP), which was founded in April 2009. CICASP is staffed by international and Japanese faculty members and administrators who are fluent in English to facilitate student integration. In 2014, CICASP partnered with the newly created Leading Graduate Program in Primatology and Wildlife Science (PWS) of Kyoto University. Students who enroll in CICASP and Kyoto University can apply to PWS and if successful receive additional training in the areas of conservation science, public outreach and curation (e.g. at zoos, aquaria and museums), as well as financial support to conduct their research. Please contact us at the email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance in finding a suitable supervisor for the graduate course.
