We have an exciting opportunity for two Animal Behaviour/Animal Welfare Postdoctoral Research Fellows to join our team.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity with a nationwide network of adoption and homing centres, volunteer-run branches and charity shops. During 2021, we helped 137,000 cats and kittens. That's the equivalent of around 375 cats a day!
Cats Protection’s Feline Welfare Research team is a relatively small but very friendly and supportive team which provides the charity with scientific domestic cat research expertise and works to increase veterinary, behaviour, welfare and epidemiological knowledge, understanding and decision-making for the benefit of cats and their caregivers. The team’s work is varied and has previously included clinical, epidemiological and human behaviour change studies. The team sits within the wider Feline Welfare department that is responsible for ensuring the behaviour and welfare, husbandry and treatment of cats in Cats Protection's care, as well as cat care advice for wider stakeholders, is maintained to a high standard at all times.
Responsibilities of our Postdoctoral Research Fellows:
You will be required to work on domestic cat welfare related projects both internally in Cats Protection and in collaboration with academics and other organisations to increase scientific and practical knowledge and data on cat welfare. Priority projects include the development, validation and practical application of cat welfare assessment tools that enable monitoring at individual and population level across different environments, and exploration of links between physical health, behaviour, housing, husbandry and different cat and environment based interventions..
