PhD Type

Non communicable diseases (NCDs) namely, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and oral diseases are the leading causes of death and disability globally and impose a significant threat to human health and development.
  Reproductive interference across continental scales: combining citizen science and behavioural experiments to test reproductive character displacement hypotheses
  Dr J Drury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social interactions between species impact numerous ecological and evolutionary processes. For instance, wasteful reproductive interactions between species (reproductive interference) may prevent two species from coexisting in the same location unless natural selection drives divergence in traits used as mating signals.
  Anxiety and motivation in Autism – are social behavioural features driven by social anxiety rather than by a reduced reward response to social stimuli?
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social behavioural difficulties are commonly reported by individuals with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). One of the leading theories suggests that these difficulties are brought about by a reduced reward response to social stimuli, i.e.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The management of projects involves various decisions that need to be undertaken for the purpose of the successful completion. There is a vast amount of tools and methods that can aid the rational decision making process.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Developing Drosophila as a model to study the molecular and behavioural changes underlying Parkinson’s disease
  Dr J Hodge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Psychological, Physiological, and Behavioural Responses to Stress
  Dr S Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By its very nature, sport and physical activity can be very stressful. How an individual responds to these demands, and whether they appraise this stress as challenging or threatening can influence whether they excel or fall to pieces in such situations.
