MRes (Self-funded): Using acoustic monitoring to inform Asian elephant welfare
We are looking for an enthusiastic, independent, MRes student to join us to study acoustic communication and behaviour of captive Asian elephants, Elephas maximus. The aim of this one-year research project is to identify whether passive acoustic monitoring can play a role in monitoring captive elephant wellbeing and activity. The project involves studying behaviour and vocalisations of the Asian elephant herd atZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
We are also able to discuss a longer-term project at the level of an MPhil or PhD, but the project does not come with a stipend.
Deadline: February 20, 2021 - APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED.
