She went on to pursue an MSc in Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare at the University of Edinburgh. Maria embarked on a PhD at the University of Guelph. Under the supervision of Professor Georgia Mason, she investigated how housing conditions affect carnivore behaviour and brain function and the potential implications of this for conservation breeding programmes. Her postdoctoral work, also at Guelph, addressed how cage size per se affects the welfare of farmed mink.
Applicants must have (or expect to receive) a university first or second class honours degree in Biology, Zoology, Animal Biology or the veterinary sciences.
We are particularly keen to see evidence of relevant work experience in a zoo, wild animal hospital or in wild animal research.
