MSc project available: How personality and sex influence problem solving in a highly social fish

We are looking for a motivated student interested in a Master’s project in Behavioural Biology and Cognition using a social cichlid (Neolamprologus pulcher) from Lake Tanganyika. The thesis will be part of the WWTF funded project: “Coping with change: Investigating the relationships between behavioural flexibility, stress and early environment”.

We are particularly interested in a student with a keen interest in scientific questions, that would like to research fish behaviour and cognition, is able to work independently and in a team. Our daily communications are in English and the student is required to have good knowledge of English and, preferably, the thesis should be written in English. The work will be based at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Ethology which is located on Wilhelminenberg in the 16th district.
