PhD students play a key role in the research undertaken on the Tsaobis baboons. However, we regret that we will not be advertising any new PhD studentships over the coming months.
We are also always interested to receive proposals from PhD students who already have funding and are seeking an appropriate site for their study. Please contact the Project Director, Guy Cowlishaw.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate students who wish to carry out undergraduate projects at Tsaobis.
Since its inception, a variety of research studies have been carried out on the behaviour, ecology, genetics, and health of the Tsaobis baboons. These projects have included studies on personality, social foraging, friendships and paternal care, leadership and group coordination, sexual signalling and mate choice, and predation risk.
Recent completed PhD projects include those by Alecia Carter, Julio Benavides, Elise Huchard, Andrew King, and Harry Marshall.
