  Taphonomy of the exceptionally-preserved Cambrian Chengjiang biota, Yunnan Province, China: how fossilization affects ecological and evolutionary interpretations
  Prof S E Gabbott, Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Geol Gabbott 2020. The Early Cambrian Chengjiang biota in Yunnan Province, China preserves the fossilized remains of a diverse and ecologically complex early Cambrian marine ecosystem.
  Learning to communicate: How do pheromones work in social and solitary bees and how did they evolve?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

Honeybees, bumblebees and other bee species are facing a multitude of threats from disease, pesticide exposure and loss of habitat.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  The evolution of primate vocal signals: from call production to signal function
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr J Dunn, Dr C Wascher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/behavioural-ecology.
  Evolution of cooperation in Trinidadian guppies: cooperative investment and social trait. PhD in Psychology (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr S Darden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Safi K. Darden, Department of Psychology, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
  Ecological drivers of the evolution of symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Dr A Beckerman, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Symbiosis is common across the tree of life and has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
