animals PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 100 animals PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

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

Ageing and body clock rhythms: The importance of a social network

It is popularly accepted that maintaining an active social life is paramount for good health and longevity. In its absence, social isolation and loneliness can elevate risk of disease and shorten lifespan. Read more

Collective Decisions in Animals and Robots

This project will study mechanisms for making effective collective group decisions to achieve goals that are embedded in space, drawing on inspiration from animal behaviour and neuroscience to design algorithms for robots. Read more

Ecological geometry: applying geometric and topological concepts and tools to model how animals interact with each other and their environment

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

PhD in Quantitative Biology of Development and Aging

A PhD position in Quantitative Biology are available in the group of Prof. Benjamin Towbin at the Institute of Cell Biology (ICB), University of Bern (http://www.towbinlab.org). Read more

Development of lung in vitro model to assess antimicrobial activity

When developing new inhaled antibiotics to treat lung infections, they will need to be tested before being given to humans. Current methods to test inhaled antibiotics are based on animals which are both inhumane and lack efficacy. Read more

Effects of Phenotypic Plasticity and/or Extreme Events on Ecological Dynamics

PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Effects of Phenotypic Plasticity and/or Extreme Events on Ecological Dynamics. The HartLab at the University of Queensland focuses on understanding why population sizes of plants and animals rise and fall. Read more

Forging a Digital Twin of the Gut-Brain Axis

Our guts shape how we think, and our minds shape how our guts work. Intestinal tracks of all animals, including humans, contain massive numbers of neurons which are essentially brains unto themselves. Read more

Embodied Decisions in Animal and Robot Brains

This project will study mechanisms for making effective decisions to achieve goals that are embedded in space, drawing on inspiration from brains to design algorithms for robots. Read more
