animal behaviour PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 34 animal behaviour PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Validating the use of cognitive bias to assess affective valence in wild bird populations.

Affective state, and thus animal welfare, is typically measured using proxy behavioural, physiological and/or cognitive indicators assumed to reflect the associated subjective experience. Read more

Fulfilling the 'promise' of precision'?A user-centred study of sensor technology for farm animal welfare

Precision livestock technologies, such as wearable sensors, have the potential to enhance farm animal welfare by monitoring animals 24/7, allowing data-led early intervention when problems arise and/or inspiring system changes to enhance positive welfare. Read more

Using cryo-electron microscopy to study large protein complexes that mediate the female post-mating response

In many animals, male seminal fluid alters female physiology and post-mating behaviour to ensure paternity of the offspring. However, how seminal fluid components elicit these post-mating responses is poorly understood. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Effects of age on disease defence strategies in ants

Group living offers favourable conditions for the spread of infectious diseases, because high population densities and frequent social contacts facilitate pathogen transmission. Read more

Energy Harvester in Renewable Energy and Sensor Networks

In this project, we will develop an energy harvester capable of harvesting vibrational energy from the environment and converting it into electrical energy to power no-battery sensors. Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans.

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.
