  Understanding temperature adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies
  Dr N Nadeau, Prof J Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
We are seeking an enthusiastic student with interests in ecology, evolution and genetics to work on a project investigating thermal adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies.
  Investigating the genetic basis of reproductive barriers in Heliconius butterflies
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Dr N Nadeau
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Neotropical Heliconius butterflies are a model system for investigating the. process of speciation. However, most all our knowledge of reproductive barriers.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
  Butterfly evo-devo in a conservation context: how embryos respond to pesticides and immune challenges
  Dr C Breuker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Over the course of their life cycle butterflies are exposed to a range of environmental factors, which act as both inducers of phenotypic variation as well as selective agents.
  Sensory adaptations to convergent micro-habitats - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S Montgomery, Prof N W Roberts
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals tune in to the most relevant information in their environment? Microhabitat partitioning between mimicry rings in Neotropical butterflies provides a case study in adaptation to different sensory environments.
  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship - Modelling butterfly abundance at varying spatial scales to inform conservation delivery
  Dr R McCrea
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
A key feature of statistical models applied to butterflies involves accounting for seasonal variation in counts, as butterflies emerge throughout the year via one or more broods.
  Mine sites as hotspots for insect biodiversity PhD (Funded)
  Prof R Ffrench-Constant, Dr J Bennie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Professor Richard ffrench-Constant, University of Exeter. Dr Jon Bennie, University of Exeter. Dr Ilya Maclean, University of Exeter.
  The validation of ecological citizen science data
  Dr P Stephens, Mr D Roy, Dr J Judge, Dr G Smith
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Citizen science approaches to wildlife monitoring are growing in scope, scale and prevalence. Long-running examples such as the Pan-European Common Birds Monitoring Scheme, and the UK’s Butterfly Monitoring Scheme show the important impact that these approaches can have on both science and monitoring.
  Assessing the breadth and depth of heatwave impacts on reproduction across insect systems (GAGEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Earth’s climate is changing, and heatwaves are becoming more frequent and extreme. Biodiversity is responding to these changes by shifting ranges, declining and going extinct, but the proximate drivers remain poorly understood.
  Coleopteran collapse? Long-term climate and environmental change effects on beetle diversity in the British Isles
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Mr M Barclay, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Background. Insects, both as pollinators and processors, are arguably the most important parts of our ecosystems. Recent studies have shown an overall pattern of significant decline in abundance and diversity of insect species across much of Europe over the past century (e.g.
