Postoc grant on wild animal welfare and ecology
Call for grant applications: Postdoc research in the intersection of ecology and wild animal welfare science
Research on wild animal welfare is growing, though it is still significantly behind similar work carried out about domesticated animals. In addition, it often focuses on the welfare of captive wild animals rather than animals living outside human control, either in wild or in other areas (such as urban, agricultural or semi-wild areas). Work in different fields of ecology, in turn, assess many aspects of the lives of these animals, but their welfare is not one of them. Due to the lack of work on this topic, Animal Ethics is calling for applications for a grant to carry out a research project in the intersection of wild animal welfare and ecology (which has been referred to as welfare biololgy).
Animal Ethics is looking for a highly motivated PhD graduate who wants to do innovative work in this area. The duration of the grant is one year, to be paid in monthly payments of $2,500, totaling $30,000.
Application deadline: July 31, 2019
