  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Background. There is a long tradition in conservation genetics of using neutral genetic markers to assess demographic patterns and processes relevant to conservation.
  Conservation genetics and infectious disease in Brandt’s bats
  Prof S Paterson, Dr K Zeng, Dr T Lilley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
There are hundreds of species of bats, each adapted to its environment. This project will use latest methods in genome sequencing to understand bat biodiversity, evolution and resistance to infectious disease.
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Prof OE Gaggiotti
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Background. Kelp forests are amongst the world’s most productive and extensive habitats, rivalling the productivity of tropical rainforests.
  Evolution in action: using museum DNA to understand disease resistance in island birds (RICHARDSONUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with IPNA-CSIC]
  Prof D S Richardson, Dr L Spurgin, Dr B Emerson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Many natural populations are facing a “double threat” of reduced genetic diversity and new pathogen challenges. Therefore, understanding how hosts adapt to pathogens in small and fragmented populations has important ramifications for conservation, epidemiology and evolution.
  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).
  Smarter habitat restoration in harmony with species reintroductions – testing solutions for the Chequered Skipper
  Dr J Hodgson, Dr I J Saccheri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2018
Note short deadline - apply now for a great opportunity to inform species recovery while developing quantitative skills!. Habitat loss and degradation remain major threats to species around the world, yet habitat restoration is also enjoying significant success in places.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Quantifying adaptive genetic variation for the conservation and management of East African tropical trees
  Prof A Jump, Dr S Cavers, Dr D Odee, Dr C Kettle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to undertake research focussing on understanding adaptive genetic diversity to underpin management decision making for East African tropical tree species.
  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
