Opportunities in the MoB Lab

If animal welfare, avian species, physiology, stress, behaviour or early life development or the confluence of all these factors interests you, get in touch

If you have ideas for PhD projects, master's projects or undergraduate internships or projects, please let us know. We're happy to chat and we like collaboration! There are opportunities for funding available for all of these diverse opportunities in Dr Karen Spencer's Mechanisms of Behaviour research lab.

"We are a group of researchers interested in understanding how brain, physiology and behaviour all link up. We study several bird species to understand how all these factors interact to affect an individual's ability to respond to challenges, such as climate change, stress and anthropogenic disturbance."
