  Ecology and evolution of early life on land: arthropod diversity and interactions
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. Dr. Greg Edgecombe FRS, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum,. Dr. Paul Kenrick, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum.
  Phage WO as a vehicle to transform Wolbachia, a symbiont of major crop pests
  Dr B Makepeace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Wolbachia, an obligate intracellular bacterium, is the commonest animal symbiont on Earth. Certain strains have spread throughout arthropod populations worldwide, in part due to the reproductive manipulations they induce in their hosts.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London
The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspire the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Phytophagous Mite Control in Raspberry: Integrating Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches
  Dr A Karley, Dr S MacFarlane, Prof T Bruce
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Phytophagous mites are major agricultural pests in annual, perennial and horticultural crops. In UK raspberry plantations, two mite species are particularly problematic, causing foliar damage, fruit malformation and yield loss.
  Dynamics, function and influence of gut microbiome in pesticides resistance
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Orsini, Prof J B Brown, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. The development of insecticide resistance is a worldwide concern and elucidating the underlying mechanisms is critical for effective crop protection and human health.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - The electric ecology of freshwater habitats
  Prof D Robert, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Essential to all biomes, freshwater is put under pressure by urbanisation and human populations, by demands of intensive agriculture, and various damages incurred through anthropogenic pollution.
  How common are heritable microbes, and why?
  Dr SJ Cornell, Prof G Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Heritable endosymbionts are extremely common, being observed in around 30% of all arthropod species. Their pervasiveness is very puzzling from an evolutionary perspective, because any host species represents a dead end to a symbiont that is only transmitted vertically (i.e.
  Drug discovery and Chemical-Biology Approaches Against Parasites that cause Neglected Tropical Diseases.
  Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
This proposal is aimed at students wanting to work at the interface of chemistry and biology.
