Do Research at the Green Lab

If you are interested in working at the Green Lab, we are excited to have you! Lab space is limited so booking early is strongly advised. The Green Lab officially launches in July 2018, but we can accept a select few researchers between May and July as well. 

How it Works:

Using the Green Lab is easy: 

  1. Submit the simple form below
  2. After review, talk with a Green Lab representative to schedule your stay
  3. Decide on which supplies you will/can carry with you and which you would need us to provide
  4. Keep an eye out for the cost sheet (due end of January 2018) to budget your stay
    1. Costs include the following:
      1. A daily rate to live at the IGFS (includes all meals)
      2. A flat lab rate to rent benchspace at the Green Lab 
      3. Associated costs if you wish to hire a lab assistant on site
      4. Associated costs if you wish the IGFS lab techs to conduct procedures for you (either with you being there or in lieu of you being on site)
      5. Costs of the ingredients you use (decided upon in advance and imported officially for you, although you are welcome to bring your own as well)
  5. Pack and travel safely to Peru!


Green Lab: Research Interest Form

  • A 300 - 500 word summary would be ideal. If insufficient, a project proposal may be requested in the future.
  • Please give individual species names if possible, or identify your group to the lowest possible taxonomic level.
  • Please give an estimate.
  • Select ALL that apply
  • (as opposed to receiving assistance from Green Lab lab techs)
  • For example, DNA extraction (kit name), PCR, Gel, MinION, PCR/Gel cleanups. Be as detailed as you can be.
  • Do not include days that you intend to spend at the IGFS on which the lab will not be a necessity. i.e. collection days, which should be excluded from this calculation.
