Scholarship Description: The Faculty of Science is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy in the Department of Biology for a doctoral student in the area of Functional and Ecological Morphology. The Functional Morphology group (FunMorph) of the University of Antwerp investigates how complex organismal systems function and evolve. Our focus is on systems that are integrated (i.e. require the integrated functioning of many bodily parts) and ecologically relevant (i.e. affect the individual’s chances for survival and reproduction). Examples of functions under study include: locomotion, feeding, fighting, communication, and thermoregulation.
Number of award(s): There is only scholarship available.
Duration of award(s): A doctoral scholarship for a period of two years, with the possibility of renewal for a further two-year period after positive evaluation.
