Study opportunity: Can sociality buffer the impacts of climate change?
Project: Can sociality buffer the impacts of climate change? We invite applications for a full-time research PhD scholarship to test the relationship between sociality and climate change vulnerability using a highly social bird (the Southern Pied Babbler, Turdoides bicolor) as a model species. The candidate will be supported and supervised by Dr Susie Cunningham (PFIAO, UCT), Assoc. Prof. Amanda Ridley (University of Western Australia) and Dr Claire Spottiswoode (PFIAO, UCT and University of Cambridge. Full details of the project and the application procedure are available here,
