  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT WITH FEES BURSARY: Cognitive Bias in Wild Animal Populations
  Dr O Burman, Dr T Pike
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of cognitive bias as a means of assessing affective state (i.e. emotions/moods) in non-human animals has been developed and widely utilised in a range of species including both domesticated species and captive wild animals.
  Development of novel feed supplements to minimise infection and improve immunity in piglets
  Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type
