MSc. Thesis, PhD Thesis and Post-docs on amphibians
Several research subjects on amphibians are regularly proposed at the Behavioural Biology Unit.
These subjects can include both field and laboratory work in Belgium and abroad. They can be adapted in function of a motivated letter from prospective students. The main research topic is the behavioural and evolutionary ecology of amphibians: courtship, predatory, and anti-predatory behavioral patterns, response to environmental factors, feeding habits, space use, demography and population dynamics, landscape ecology and conservation.
Prospective students and researchers are advised to contact Mathieu Denoël (home page) to find out about the possibility of doing research in the lab and to start preparing the research plan. Applications must contain a detailed curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation and details on the planned research project. Prospective post-docs need to have experience in the field and ranked publications.
