  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  Social epidemiology: interactions, networks, and disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – in complex social organisms, like humans and bees, is poorly understood.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
  Imprinting and ploidy in a social insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project asks how can imprinted genes exist in a haplodiploid organism.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how isdiapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
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.
  Assessing the pollination efficiency of different species of bees on buzz-pollinated plants of agricultural significance
  Dr M Vallejo-Marin, Prof P Willmer
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Bees provide essential pollination services in both natural and agricultural systems. The recent and worrying decline in bee populations around the world has highlighted the importance of understanding the interaction of flowers and bees during pollination.
  Floral utopia for urban pollinators - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof J Memmott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Pollinators are declining worldwide, and a lack of floral resources is high on the list of likely causes. While there are many pollinator-friendly planting mixes for use in urban and rural areas, most are based on expert knowledge rather than a rigorous evidence base.
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
