Apply here: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/cbe/chickenstress

As part of the ChickenStress European Training Network, we are now advertising 14 PhD positions across different institutions across Europe.

The PhD positions all revolve around understanding the causes of chronic stress in birds (laying hens), and range widely in their focus:

Some positions are comparative neuroscience projects, ranging from electrophysiology to anatomy, development and neuroethology.

Some positions are bioinformatics projects, investigating genomics and epigenetics of the avian stress response.

And some positions are animal behaviour projects, focusing on effects of early life, genetics and current environment on cognition, stress reactivity and other behavioural indicators.

There is something for everyone, so please circulate this as widely as possible to any potential applicants. Applicants from all nationalities are eligible to apply, as long as they conform with the mobility requirement of the Marie S. Curie Actions. For more detail, see the website
