The biology of Mesozoic birds

Project Rationale. The Mesozoic bird Confuciusornis sanctus lived in one of the most complex ecosystems of the Early Cretaceous, alongside many dinosaurs, but its life history today remains poorly understood. Read more

Assessing the costs of building in birds

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Building an appropriate nest is key to reproductive success for most birds. Indeed nests themselves are familiar objects, while their contents (eggs and then chicks) are not just familiar but have been a focus for considerable investigation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Multitrophic responses to multitrophic conservation interventions: non-target species responses to biological eradications on an island

Non-native alien species are one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss, especially on islands. Eradication of such species, although controversial, remains the only effective means by which to prevent extinctions and restore native island ecosystem functioning. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Woodland-mediated predator impacts on open ground birds

Government policies are driving UK woodland expansion, especially in the uplands. Expanding woodland has benefits, but previous upland afforestation has impacted open ground biodiversity including waders. Read more

Social behaviour and population biology in birds

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.

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 several business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to address some of the toughest challenges of our time. Read more

The role of sexual signal evolution in avian speciation

*** Fully funded PhD position to work on an exciting project studying the evolution of sexual signalling traits and drivers of speciation across the global radiation of birds. Read more

Target tracking and detection in complex clutter environments

The Microwave Integrated Systems Laboratory at the University of Birmingham is offering a PhD studentship with Thales UK as part of their recently awarded Industrial Cooperative Award in Science & Technology (iCASE). Read more

PhD in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety

Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology. Read more
