  Fantastic fat and the evolution of capital and income breeding strategies in seals
  Dr A Welch, Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aims. Seals are often considered icons for how organisms evolve to adapt to their environment, and they have developed several strategies to finance their breeding attempts.
  Workers and Shirkers: Alternative Life-history Trajectories in a Cooperatively Breeding Kalahari Bird, NERC GW4+, PhD in Biosciences studentship.
  Dr A Young, Dr A Wilson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Characterising genetic diversity of Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia (L.) DC) and developing a pipeline for marker assisted breeding
  Dr P Walley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Food Security has risen to the top of the international agenda following recent spikes in the price of food and the perceived growing threat to future supplies (see, e.g., the “G8 Action on Food Security and Nutrition” http://www.state.gov/s/globalfoodsecurity/190282.htm).
  Gene editing and molecular breeding for fungal disease resistance in lettuce
  Prof K Denby, Dr F Gawthrop, Dr John Clarkson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This studentship offers an innovative opportunity to combine state-of-the-art molecular skills (footprint-free gene editing, RNA sequencing, genomics) with genetics, plant pathology, crop, model plant, lab and field work.
  Communication and social behaviour in carrion crows (Corvus corone corone)
  Dr C Wascher, Dr J Dunn
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Sexual selection, mating systems and speciation: testing a novel hypothesis using genomic data
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Genetic Analysis of Complex Traits in Autotetraploid Crops including Potato
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Autopolyploidy is a characteristic shared by many important crops including potato, coffee, leek, sugarcane, alfalfa and some economically important aquaculture animals, including Atlantic salmon and trout.
  Physiology and biochemistry of the softening mechanism in ripening fruits: fundamental and commercial approaches
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Prof S C Fry, Prof D Uhrin
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Rationale. This project comprises novel research that is of both fundamental and industrial interest. The softening of ripening fruit involves dramatic changes in cell-wall structure.
  Reproductive suppression in mammals: social mediators and implications for conservation
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Reproductive suppression occurs in diverse mammalian species and may be defined broadly as the inhibition of reproductive physiology or behaviour in response to environmental conditions.
  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.
