  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat connectivity (FRANCOUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Dr T Luisetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The establishment of robust networks of protected areas is key to address biodiversity loss. Species that move between breeding and non-breeding sites are among those that are most challenging to protect.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation
  Dr S Reilly, Prof C Redwood, Assoc Prof M Lei
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac fibrosis is a hallmark histological feature of structural changes in the myocardium associated with virtually all cardiac diseases (e.g., heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation and myocarditis).
  Impacts of fishing-induced changes in forage fish school structure on African penguin foraging
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will examine African penguin – fish school interactions using a combination of acoustic survey and biologging off Robben and Dassen Islands, South Africa.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round
