Do you want to join our team?

We look for volunteers, students, and colleagues for cooperations and partnership willing to help to understand the dinosaurs and vertebrate paleontology.


Public target: anyone over the age of 16 can apply to be a volunteer.

Tasks: The tasks will be distributed a agreed according to the interests and skills of the volunteer and our work needs. Typically, volunteers join the laboratory at Museu da Lourinhã or Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and often join for dinosaur and other vertebrates paleontology work in Portugal.

We have offer a volunteer program with lab and field work along the year: 

Weekend fieldtrips or along the year we receive volunteers from all over Europe, for a few days, weeks or months of laboratory experience and some field work. The duration ans style depends on each person. We try to provide lodging but this is seen case-by-case. We aim to creates great long-term scientific and friendship bonds between us and volunteers. 

The Summer excavations (June to August) are field excavations concentrated in the summertime for our team, professional colleagues and previous volunteers only.
