Nikolaus Huber, DVM,

Post-Doctoral Fellow

Konrad Lorenz Institute of Ethology, University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria

I am a Veterinarian by education with a specialization in wildlife conservation medicine. After I graduated from the University of  Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, I worked as a wildlife research vet in Norway and Sweden, mainly on Scandinavian brown bears and roe deer with a particular focus on stress physiology. After an intermediate stop at the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland, working in the field of evolutionary parasitology, I went back to Vienna to complete my PhD where I explored a method called Leukocyte coping capacity and its use as an immunological proxy for stress. Currently, I am a post-doc at the Konrad Lorenz Institute of Ethology, focusing on the reciprocal interactions between stress, health and animal welfare in different environmental contexts.
