  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
  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.
  The long arm of parents: non-genetic effects on fitness, population viability and adaptive evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Dr S Immler, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Recent discoveries showed that parental environment affects offspring performance for many generations.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans: Is there evidence of changes in trophic structure and trait evolution that indicate evolutionary escalation in Mesozoic oceans?
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - Diversity and speciation of aquatic macroinvertebrates of Malawi
  Prof M Genner, Prof M Beaumont
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Freshwater faunas are increasingly threatened by urbanisation, agricultural intensification, water abstraction, dam building, overfishing and invasive species.
  How do Arctic seabirds coordinate parental care in a changing climate?
  Dr S Patrick, Prof B J Hatchwell
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background – The Arctic is experiencing more rapid climate change than any other ecosystem on earth, with potentially devastating consequences for biodiversity in the region.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Research Group: Division of Evolution & Genomic Sciences
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round
We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  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.
