  The macroevolutionary diversification and elaboration of antlers in deer
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The antlers of members of the deer family have long captivated naturalists around the world. Among evolutionary biologists, antlers have become a textbook example of what is known as positive allometry—a relationship where larger individuals have disproportionately large antlers.
  Phylogeography of European ungulates from the last interglacial period and their subsequent evolution
  Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
This study will use next generation sequencing methods to explore the genetic diversity of deer and other ungulates from the Eemian interglacial period, ~120,000 years ago.
  *NERC E4* Mapping inbreeding depression in wild red deer
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Prof J Pemberton, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply.
  Measuring the seasonally changing condition of ungulates in temperate and semi-desert environments
  Dr S G Willis, Dr P Stephens
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The body condition of individuals is a major determinant of which animals breed in a population, and of the likelihood of a population thriving or declining, yet studies on condition in wild species are rare.
  Rewilding the great wood of Caledon: using remote sensing to understand natural forest regeneration in Scotland
  Dr C Ryan, Dr A Keane
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Scotland and the UK are deforested countries. In recent years, the entwined ideas of rewilding and natural forest regeneration have influenced land use, particularly in upland Scotland.
  Rewilding and Conservation - Insect faunas and natural grazing
  Dr E Panagiotakopulu, Dr P Walsh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
After Vera’s seminal work on rewilding and the evidence for the importance of herbivores as part of the dynamic natural cycle, various rewilding projects across Europe have attempted to protect areas, to provide an understanding of grazing regimes of old breeds of herbivores and to collate data which may be used for conservation.
  Investigating the co-evolution of chromosome organisation and gene expression
  Dr M Farré Belmonte
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Our lab aims to study genome evolution and the genetic changes associated with individual and species differences, applying the newest comparative and functional genomic techniques and the great wealth of genomic data available.
  Returning to the Ocean: The Transitional Mechanics of Legged Whales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr W Sellers, Dr L Margetts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Darwinian evolution, descent with modification, is elegantly supported by the primary evidence that maps change within recognisable lineages in the fossil record.
