  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Penguin propulsion mechanics in underwater swimming
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
