  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  Theoretical Evolution and Ecology
  Prof C Mullon
Application Deadline: 25 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Mullon lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, is a PhD student to develop new theory in evolutionary genetics and evolutionary ecology.
  Predicting the future: the paradox of transgenerational non-genetic inheritance in evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman, Dr S Immler
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Parental environments can affect offspring performance over many generations.
  Evolution of mimicry: Genetic, morphometric, and functional origins of leaf mimicry in singing insects
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimicry is a remarkable Darwinian adaptation, and bush crickets whose wings resemble plant leaves are among the most spectacular examples of mimicry in the natural world.
  Exploring the contribution of horizontal gene transfer to greenhouse gas emissions from arable agriculture
  Dr J Hall, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas, and arable agriculture is a major source of N2O due to incomplete denitrification of N-based fertilizers by microbes.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The genetic basis of recent loss of self-incompatibility in North American Arabidopsis lyrata
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr A Tedder, Dr K Poterlowicz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shift to self-pollination (or selfing) is one of the most prevalent evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Charles Darwin (1876) studied selfing using extensive ecological experiments.
  Antibiotic exposure impacts on fish health in natural freshwaters. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Professor Charles Tyler, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
