International Internships

Is an Internship at the PEAR Lab right for You?
    The PEAR Lab is excited to offer a limited number of internships to highly motivated graduate, undergraduate, and in some cases, secondary level students seeking the cross-cultural learning and research experience of a lifetime!

    Our location in the capital city of the semi-arid, atsimo andrefana (southwestern) region of Madagascar provides unparalleled biological as well as socio-cultural diversity. 

    We can currently accommodate interns to our unique research program on a per individual, rolling admission basis. Success in the PEAR Lab requires a special kind of student; driven to understand the most amazing aspects of our evolved and encultured human brains; comfortable crossing any and all disciplines to get that understanding; and deeply committed to helping the Toliara community improve education and quality of life from the grass-roots up. 

    Madagascar is a vast and wild place to live for 3-12 months; we can not offer financing, but will discuss options and expenses upon inquiry. We will assist you in every step from booking your flight to arriving on campus and securing a comfortable and affordable living space. 

    Dustin Eirdosh, will also guide you through pre-arrival planning to ensure your personal project is a meaningful success for both you and the local community.

    Contact Dustin to discuss how we might further your studies and help build meaningful educational innovation in Madagascar!
