  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  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.
  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
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.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  The evolution of human and gorilla locomotor ecology
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr W Sellers
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The transition from arboreal to terrestrial life has long been recognized as the major ecological transition in early human evolution that led to the evolution of bipedal locomotion and thus freed the hands from locomotor activities, and allowed the manufacture of stone tools.
  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.
