PhD student wanted: management of domestic cats in the urban environment

The management of cats is a controversial topic and this project aims to inform the management debate by investigating the impact domestic cats have on both desirable and undesirable species and by testing for any variation in predation during the day versus night.

The research will involve collar-mounted GPS and cameras to understand predation, and will also survey cat owners to determine their attitudes and practices.

Supervised by Margaret Stanley, James Russell, and Imogen Bassett (Auckland Council).

Must be able to obtain University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship (GPE: 8).

Email Margaret for more information: mc.stanley@auckland.ac.nz

 

Funded positions will be advertised as they become available.

Please contact Margaret for postgraduate and volunteer opportunities.
