Dear all

We are looking for a suitable candidate for a PhD project investigating 'Multimodal communication in a changing world', as part of this year's NERC GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership. This interdisciplinary project will use alarm signalling in coral reef fish (i) to investigate the relative use of different sensory channels and (ii) to explore how this multimodal communication is affected by various global pollutants.

The lead supervisor is Prof. Andy Radford (http://www.bio.bris.ac.uk/research/behavior/Vocal_Communication/home.html) in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/biology/). Co-supervision will be provided by Dr Steve Simpson (Biosciences, Univ. Exeter), Prof. Nick Roberts (Biological Sciences, University of Bristol), Dr Christos Ioannou (Biological Sciences, University of Bristol) and Dr Shelby Temple (Azul Optics).

More details about the project, eligibility requirements and how to apply are available at http://nercgw4plus.ac.uk/project/multimodal-communication-in-a-changing-world/.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you would like any further information before applying.

Best wishes
