  Brain evolution in pre-mammalian cynodonts and the role of intraspecific variation
  Dr S Lautenschlager
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Modern mammals are distinguished from other vertebrate groups by a number of distinctive characters, which include the trend towards a large brain (in comparison to body size) and an expanded neocortex.
  Understanding reintroduction biases in mammals & birds
  Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The reintroduction of threatened species is an increasingly vital conservation tool in a time of rapid anthropogenic environmental change (1).
  Novel imaging biomarkers for prognosis of developmental outcomes in babies born preterm using machine-learning
  Dr M Deprez
Applications accepted all year round
1st Supervisor - Dr Maria Deprez. 2nd Supervisor - Dr Marc Modat. The aim of this project is to take advantage of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to improve our understanding of brain development and neurocognitive outcomes in babies born preterm.
  Evolution and ecology of extractive foraging in birds and mammals
  Prof RA Barton, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Extractive foraging is the act of locating and processing embedded or encased foods such as underground plant storage organs, wood-boring arthropods, shellfish or plant parts protected by a thorny, tough or hard matrix (1-3).
  Evolution of Nonverbal Communication: Music and the Voice
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Linguistic evolution is a prime topic for the IMPRS, but the human voice can also be used for communicating nonverbal social signals, by spontaneously using prosody and intonation.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round
Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  SCENARIO: Hominin dispersal, climate and encephalization
  Dr C Venditti, Dr JS Singarayer, Prof M Pagel, Prof S Harrison
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Modern humans arose in Africa around 200,000 years ago and subsequently migrated out of Africa eventually to occupy the entire world – the only Hominin species in an evolutionary lineage that is ~7 million years old to have done so.
  Bridging the interface between time series analysis and network science
  Research Group: Complex Systems and Networks
  Dr L Lacasa
Applications accepted all year round
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
