WildCRU, Zoology, University of Oxford
Major threats to wildlife conservation, be it through habitat loss, persecution and trade, conflict or disease, all necessitate solutions based on scientific evidence. Providing that evidence to achieve practical solutions to conservation problems through original scientific research is the mission of the WildCRU. Our research projects are generally based in behavioural ecology, but also highly inter-disciplinary. The student will be part of a vibrant and highly collaborative research group that is pioneering conservation research (www.wildcru.org). The details of any DPhil project would be defined in discussion with the student, and could involve fieldwork in the UK (for example on badgers) or overseas (for example on Ethiopian wolves) although topic and species are open to discussion.
David Macdonald is not accepting D.Phil students in 2020
