Applications are invited for a fully-funded Ph.D. scholarship that will focus on understanding what factors predict wild mammalian carnivores’ ability to adapt to environmental changes, particularly within the context of rewilding. This Ph.D. study is part of the University of Hull’s REWILD Research cluster (see “About the research cluster” below for more details of the cluster). The notion of rewilding is a controversial topic because many programs focus on carnivores. Negative opinions can severely limit such programs’ success, thereby wasting time, money, and effort. The Ph.D. will therefore explore, among other things, the links between the psychology and behavioral ecology of wild mammalian carnivores’ adaptability to new environments, and how human perception of those species can facilitate rewilding success.
