We are a research station with a heart. For thirty years we have worked closely with village communities on improving health, education and business enterprises. We work with schools to do reforestation, have a strong environmental arts program and work with every level of government (traditional, local, regional and national). Our donors are diverse, including: National Geographic, NSF, NIH, USAID, UNICEF, Conservation International, Macarthur, Liz Claiborne and Packard.  We work closely with the National Park Service and the Ministry of the Environment and the University of Antananarivo and University of Fianarantsoa. It’s a dynamic, wonderful way to do conservation, with a loyal, hardworking staff of 85 local people. We have modern facilities with molecular biology labs, infectious disease labs, microCT scanner, computers, microscopes and high speed internet. The Chief Technical Advisor will have skills that are diverse, and will be responsible for overseeing finance. The selected candidate will be someone who can interface with USAID and all our partners, and someone who can write proposals and organize the Annual Report.
