Staff


Our Center brings together people speaking by twelve mother tongues and living in six countries from three continents. All staff members of the Center live and work together in our main station in Nagada Harbour near Madang. The core of the staff is formed by the paraecologists and resident postgraduate (Hons., M.Sc. and Ph.D.) students. The associated researchers participate in on-site training and develop research programs for the Center. Researchers and experts in other relevant areas form the Board of Advisors to the Center.
