Post-doctoral fellow and PhD opportunities for work on the 'animal research nexus'
We hope some colleagues with research interests in or on the interface between animal studies; science and technology studies and medical sociology may be interested in the following opportunities at post-doc and phd level.
- Post Doctoral Research Fellow (University of Southampton) Networks of laboratory animal breeding and biobanking (closing date: 15th June)

These opportunities are associated with a new 5 year programme of work on ‘The Animal Research Nexus: Changing Constitutions of Science, Health and Welfare’, funded by the Wellcome Trust. This major grant is led by Professor Gail Davies (University of Exeter) with Dr Beth Greenhough (Oxford University), Dr Pru Hobson-West (University of Nottingham), Dr Rob Kirk (University of Manchester) and Dr Emma Roe (University of Southampton).
There is a little more information on the whole programme of work available on my website. Please follow the links above for more details on each of the roles.
