  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Characterization of honey bee viral infection and replication in honey bee and the mites
  Prof T Kadowaki
Applications accepted all year round
Our research group has studied host-pathogen/parasite interactions underlying various honey bee diseases. The decline of managed honey bee colonies across the globe is highly associated with the parasitic mite infestation as well as virus (DWV) infection.
  Remote bee hive health communication using low power, long range communication technology
  Dr G Putrino
Application Deadline: 30 December 2018
Managing the health of remote bee hives has inherent challenges due to the long travel times and difficulties involved in accessing hive locations.
  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social organisms? (BOURKEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  The impact of light at night on bee-plant interactions
  Dr N Hempel de Ibarra
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
  How many flowers to sustain wild bees?
  Dr J Cresswell, Dr D Horsell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Descriptors and bioactivity of Leatherwood honey: an iconic Australian honey bee product
  Dr S Garland
Application Deadline: 30 December 2018
Authenticity of a unique bioactive honey is the goal of this project. Leatherwood (Eucryphia lucida) is a wild, native plant found in the northwest of Tasmania.
  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.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
