  Orangutan behavioural ecology in wild and captive settings
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr J M Chappell
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical forest environments are mechanically very complex; they consist of a 3-D array of branches and vines that are flexible, irregular and discontinuous.
  SCENARIO: When (plant) life gets in the way: Investigating how vegetation attenuates sex pheromone odour plumes and communication between conspecifics
  Dr R Girling, Prof A Robins, Prof R Cardé
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary studentship will investigate how the plume dynamics of sex pheromone signals released by moths are attenuated by vegetation and the effects that this has on moth mate searching and ecology.
  Plastics and the hidden majority – microplastics and the conservation implications for a threatened UK freshwater fish
  Dr C Bull, Dr E Lahive, Dr R Quilliam, Prof N J Willby
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to carry out this exciting PhD project that will provide interdisciplinary research opportunities across aquatic ecosystem processes, behavioural ecology, ecotoxicology and conservation management.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  Understanding the ecology and evolution of defence-pollination conflicts in plants
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how species adapt to different environments requires consideration of how they respond to multiple agents of natural selection.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  The evolution of social isolation: Pathology, competitive exclusion or adaptation?
  Dr L Brent
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. James Higham, New York University, Anthropology. Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ.
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  WEIRDSEX: the evolutionary causes and consequences of unexpected mating systems
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project will explore the causes and consequences of unexpected sexual behaviour in insects, or “when good mating systems go bad”.
