Two 4-year PhD studentships are available to carry out projects on the behaviour of wild spider monkeys at Universidad Veracruzana (Mexico) under the supervision of experienced researchers. Potential applicants should email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and mention which of the two research topics they are interested in.

(in collaboration with Dr. Pedro Dias, Universidad Veracruzana)
Grooming reciprocity and negotiation in spider monkeys
(in collaboration with Dr. Gabriele Schino, CNR, Italian Research Council)
Contact should be made as soon as possible as applicants need to submit a research protocol developed with the potential supervisor during the application process.
