We have 12 animal behaviours PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

4-year PhD Studentship: Assessing long-lasting pain following hot-iron disbudding in dairy calves

Although freedom from pain is a key pillar of animal welfare, painful procedures are still common on most dairy farms. For instance, despite being painful1, hot-iron disbudding is still performed on the vast majority of calves. Read more

Understanding Stress Regulation and Stress Resilience in the Avian Brain

Bird brains diverged from mammalian brains over 300 million years ago. Over that time, the hypothalamic and brainstem mechanisms of the stress response have been remarkably conserved. 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.
