Two PhD studentships opportunities at Plymouth University

The first: 'Understanding the importance of individual heterogeneity in group-living animals' will explore how the role of differences in ‘state’ and experience shape individual – and group-level dynamics in the Trinidadian guppy.

The second: 'Validating a new cognitive proxy measure of animals’ affective state' will develop a novel cognitive test of animal affect, designed to reduce the need for labour-intensive animal training. It will involve working with horses and dogs. 

The studentship will have a three year duration and will cover full-time home/EU tuition fees plus a stipend of £14,777 per annum. The studentship will only fund those applicants who are eligible for home/EU fees with relevant qualifications. Applicants required to cover overseas fees will have to cover the difference between home/EU and overseas tuition fee rates (approximately £10,350 per annum). 

Please contact the relevant supervisor for initial informal discussions. The closing date for applications is 12 noon, 06 April 2018.
