  PhD position on dynamic modelling of animal behaviours using machine learning, intelligent sensors and computational ethology
  Dr T Norton
Applications accepted all year round
The laboratory of Measure, Model, Manage Bio-Responses (M3-BIORES) is a world-leading research laboratory focussing on real-time monitoring and management of animal behaviours.
  Do bees feel pain?
  Prof L Chittka, Dr E Versace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The assessment of pain in animals is a moral obligation in deciding on strategies for animal welfare, for domestic animals and those that are hunted in the wild, as well as animals used for experimentation in the laboratory.
  Does cognitive stimulation reduce behavioural and neural measures of ‘boredom’ in laboratory ferrets?
  Dr C Burn, Dr M Diez Leon, Prof J Bizley
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Discovering whether animals show signs consistent with boredom when cognitive stimulation is relatively low is important, because of its implications for captive animal welfare and their needs for mental stimulation.
  Sound analysis of broiler chicken - what can we tell about health, welfare and productivity from sound patterns during growth
  Dr A Butterworth
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019
The project. Vocalisation sounds in broiler chickens, reared under intensive farm conditions, may have potential to be used as a tool to improve their health and welfare status.
  Links between animal behaviour, health and welfare
  Dr SDE Held
Applications accepted all year round
An animal’s behaviour both causes and reflects changes in its health and welfare. The biological processes underlying these relationships are increasingly well understood in humans.
  Bloomsbury PhD Studentship: Antimicrobial usage in farm animal veterinary practice in the UK: A mixed methods approach
  Prof D Brodbelt, Dr A Fraser
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasing problem for animals and humans. An important approach to address AMR is to reduce drug resistance selection upon bacterial populations by reducing or changing antimicrobial (AM) usage.
  PhD Development of machine learning algorithms for early prediction of lameness in cattle using heterogenous and irregular data
  Dr J Kaler, Dr T Kypraios, Prof M Green
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
This opportunity is based within Ruminant Population Health group at the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science which conducts cutting-edge research into the health and welfare of cattle and sheep focussing on endemic diseases.
  Bloomsbury PhD studentship: “Omics” based characterisation of host genetics and gut microbiome composition in relation to pathogen abundance in chickens
  Dr A Psifidi, Prof F Tomley, Dr D Blake, Dr O Gundogdu
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Pathogenic microbes limit economic production of poultry, compromise animal welfare and pose a risk to human health. Vaccines are available for some pathogens but are expensive, with limited availability in many countries.
