  Polyploidy-related structural and functional changes in the Arabidopsis genome.
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round
My research interests lie in the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  *NERC E4* State-dependent cooperation among parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Regan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply.
  State-dependent cooperation among parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Moorad
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Most prior work on the evolution of biparental cooperation has focused on how each individual adjusts its contribution in response to changes in the amount of care provided by its partner.
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat Connectivity (FRANCOUENV19ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Prof CD Santos
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Biodiversity loss is one of the major challenges of the Anthropocene and the establishment of robust networks of protected areas is one of the key actions identified to address this challenge.
  Communication and social behaviour in carrion crows (Corvus corone corone)
  Dr C Wascher, Dr J Dunn
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  The role of lipid-store body condition in the behaviour and reproduction of cetaceans
  Prof P Miller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Body condition, here defined as the quantity of energy stores carried in the fat (lipid) stores of an individual, reflects an integration of metabolic costs and foraging success - but also reflects the reproductive needs of the individual in their life cycle (Miller et al., 2011).
  MPhil Scholarship: Developing Oats for Improving Human and Animal Health
  Dr I P Shah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
TO READ THE FULL PROJECT DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT. http://kess2.ac.uk/aum30004/. Available evidence highlights a major opportunity to add significant value to oats through the isolation and quantification of lipids as functional ingredients in the human food chain or for use in the cosmetic industry.
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how isdiapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
