  Dog-Human Cooperation – A Comparative Approach
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Cooperation, defined as a behaviour that is beneficial to another individual or to several individuals involved in a task, is characteristic for humans, but also for domestic dogs.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  Objective assessment of gait and muscle function in dogs with neurologic disease
  Dr E Olsen, Dr M Daley
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
In this project, you will work with a team of world-leading researchers in animal coordination and locomotion at the Royal Veterinary College to develop standards to assess coordination and muscle function in dogs with neurologic disease and for detection of clinically-relevant changes over time after intervention (surgery or non-surgical management).
  An investigation of the neural substrates underlying electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) induced memory changes
  Prof Colleen Loo
Applications accepted all year round
The Sydney Neurostimulation Centre (SyNC) located within the Black Dog Institute, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia is seeking a Ph.D student to undertake research investigating how the pattern of brain stimulation from electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is associated with memory side-effects.
  Investigating behavioural interventions as management tools for drug-resistant canine epilepsy
  Dr R Packer, Dr R Fowkes, Dr E Blackwell
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Project description. Idiopathic epilepsy (IE) is a common, complex and often challenging neurological disorder to treat in the dog.
  Synthesis of locomotor behaviours using realistic musculoskeletal models of bipeds and quadrupeds
  Dr M Daley, Dr J Hutchinson
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
To achieve agile locomotion, animals must effectively integrate neural control with the physical properties of the musculoskeletal system [1].
  What Lies Beneath? – Imaging biomarkers of osteoarthritic cartilage disease
  Dr R Meeson, Prof A Pitsillides
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Osteoarthritis (OA), common in humans and dogs, is the painful and debilitating end-destination of diseased joints. OA is typified by articular cartilage degradation, subchondral cyst and bone marrow lesion (BML) formation, osteophytogenesis and significant modifications to bone mass and geometry.
  Using administrative data to improve neighbourhood environmental services and outcomes
  Dr P Matthews
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Project details. Neighbourhood environmental problems, such as dog fouling and road repairs, are key issues for citizens and a core part of the business of local authorities.
