  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Host-parasite coevolution in ecological communities
  Dr B Ashby
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).
  The evolution of symbiosis: understanding the ecological conditions that drive the emergence of stable symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Prof D Cameron, Dr A Beckerman, Dr AJ Wood
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Symbiosis—the living together of unlike organisms—has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Understanding the ecology and evolution of defence-pollination conflicts in plants
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how species adapt to different environments requires consideration of how they respond to multiple agents of natural selection.
  The role of interspecific interactions in shaping adaptive evolution in soil microbial communities
  Dr S O'Brien, Prof S Paterson, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how microbial communities evolve and function is regarded as one of today’s greatest challenges. Microbial communities are highly diverse and complex, yet this same complexity makes it extremely challenging to understand how a community might respond and adapt to change.
  Holey hypervolumes! The multivariate geometry of adaptive radiation.
  Dr A MacColl, Dr S Preston
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We seek a maths, physics or engineering graduate with an interest in biology, or a biologist with good mathematical skills, for an exciting, international, interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD to investigate multidimensional variation in the shape (phenotype) of fish, and the ecological characteristics of the environments they inhabit.
  The genetic basis of female fertility in the zebra finch
  Dr N Hemmings, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding variation in reproductive success is a fundamental goal of evolutionary biology, with broad implications for fields such as conservation and reproductive medicine.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridium difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospital and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
