Centre for Research in Animal Behaviour. Studentships. In addition, we have had success in developing collaborative PhD studentships with external funding bodies including the GWCT, DEFRA, Dairy Co etc. However, attracting funding for a PhD is not trivial.
The Centre for Behaviour and Evolution (CBE) in collaboration with the Behavioural and Experimental Northeast Cluster (BENC) and Open Lab have five fully funded 4-year PhD studentships in Behaviour Informatics and the multimodal study of behaviour. Studentships are funded by the Leverhulme Trust with an expected start date of September 2020.
Several PhD studentships are available at the Institute of Zoology each year. Most studentships are funded by UK Research Councils but some come from other funders including overseas universities and charitable foundations (see 'Guidelines for finding a PhD at IoZ' below).The scientific study of animal behaviour and welfare furthers our understanding of why animals behave in the way that they do, and helps us learn how best to respond to the challenges that animals face when living in captive and wild environments. At Lincoln, this is informed by academics who are considered to be at the forefront of their respective fields in welfare assessment, animal.Animal behaviour, performance and welfare The group focuses on research aimed at improving the welfare of captive, companion and performance animals. This multi-disciplinary group includes specialists in the assessment of animal health and welfare using a range of concepts and methodologies.
