Research at Iracambi

Situated in the mountains of Minas Gerais, in one of the most important areas of seasonal semi-deciduous Atlantic Forest in the state, the Iracambi Rainforest Research Center is the perfect base for you to conduct your individual or group research projects in the biological, social and earth sciences. 

Please contact us to set up an online meeting so that we can get to know one another, and ensure that expectations can be met on both sides, and that your time here will be as profitable and enjoyable as possible. 

We would like to see your research or internship proposal, which shows us clearly what objective you hope to achieve. While we can give you all the logistical support you need, we cannot guarantee technical support, and you should maintain contact with your research supervisor. Researchers and interns should plan to spend a minimum of one month.

Student Groups

We are always delighted to welcome student groups accompanied by faculty members. Please contact us and let’s talk!
