Studies on the links between animal play and animal welfare
Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences
Université Laval, Canada
The laboratory's research program on animal play aims to answer the following set of related questions: why did play evolve, what can it tell us about animal welfare, and what are the effects of play on animal welfare? Domestic piglets will be used as an ideal model species for these investigations.
One position is available, for either a master's (MSc) or a doctorate (PhD) in animal science. Projects carried out will depend in part on the student's interests.
Position starts: no later then May 2021
