Animal welfare indicators (AWIN) is an exciting new four-year, animal welfare research programme involving ten institutions from seven countries across Europe, USA and Brazil, funded by EU FP7. The programme, involving projects with sheep, goats, horses, donkey and turkeys aims to develop easy to use and practical indicators of animal welfare that are supported by scientific evidence. The programme is now looking to recruit 7 high calibre PhD students to join projects in Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Czech Republic, and to be part of this dynamic research environment.
