A major goal of this research is to determine the optimum captive management conditions for reproduction in the Splendid Leaf Frogs.
The majority of the project work will take place in the UK but some fieldwork in the tropics may be required.
The study is part of a joint project between the Manchester Museum, The Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Manchester and the North of England Zoological Society (Chester Zoo) and the student will spend time at each collaborating institution.
This studentship is open to all nationalities.
Applicants should have an excellent undergraduate record and some research experience.
Previous experience working with frogs is desirable but not required.
