  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.
  Social evolution in shorebirds: mating systems, population demography and biodiversity conservation
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Lead supervisor. Dr Tamas Szekely, Milner Centre for Evolution, University of Bath, email. [email protected] Co-supervisors. (1) Dr Ben Ashby, Dept of Mathematics, (2) Dr Richard James, Dept of Physics.
  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.
  Native and Invasive Ladybirds in a Changing U.K. Climate
  Dr J Perry, Dr A Salisbury
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
  Evolution and ecology of extractive foraging in birds and mammals
  Prof RA Barton, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Extractive foraging is the act of locating and processing embedded or encased foods such as underground plant storage organs, wood-boring arthropods, shellfish or plant parts protected by a thorny, tough or hard matrix (1-3).
  Predicting the Unpredictable: the role of eco-evolutionary experience in species interactions across taxa and habitats
  Prof J Dick, Prof XL Lambin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Jaimie Dick of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Professor Xavier Lambin of the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Modelling Biodiversity and Pattern Formation with Evolutionary Games
  Dr M Moblia
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the maintenance of biodiversity and the emergence of cooperation are important topics in the Life and Behavioural Sciences.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round
Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  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.
