  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  Coleopteran collapse? Long-term climate and environmental change effects on beetle diversity in the British Isles
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Mr M Barclay, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Background. Insects, both as pollinators and processors, are arguably the most important parts of our ecosystems. Recent studies have shown an overall pattern of significant decline in abundance and diversity of insect species across much of Europe over the past century (e.g.
  Invertebrate communities in hollowing trees
  Dr T H Jones, Prof L Boddy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. In standing trees, most decay occurs in the heartwood (heart-rot). The rotted hearts of trees release nutrients for tree growth and provide habitat for assemblages of saproxylic bacteria and fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates.
  Investigating the developmental genetic mechanisms controlling the timing of body segmentation in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.D. Peel, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Prof I A Hope
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The arthropods (flies, beetles, spiders etc.) have obvious externally visible repeating body units, while vertebrates exhibit internal segmentation in the form of vertebrae, ribs and associated muscle.
  Exploiting genetic variation in silicon defences: a new mechanism tocounter an emerging threat to UK ash trees
  Prof S Hartley, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Understanding the genetic mechanisms by which plants defend. themselves against insect pests and fungal diseases is particularly.
  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
  *NERC E4* Social and transgenerational effects of parasitism: could they affect biological control of a stored product pest?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Prof N Colegrave, Dr A Evans
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.
  *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.
  Landscape composition and carbon-biodiversity co-benefits in the Tropical Andes
  Dr D Edwards, Prof R Freckleton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Deforestation is a key driver of global climate change and the biodiversity extinction crisis. However, the financial resources available to tackle both issues are limited, indicating an urgent need to identify actions that address them concurrently.
