  Responsible Investor Engagement on Extinction Prevention
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Accounting and Finance in Context (CRAFiC)
  Prof J Atkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our world is currently experiencing a sixth period of mass species extinction. Current extinction rates are estimated somewhere between a thousand and ten thousand times higher than the ‘natural’ level of extinction.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Dr DN Newell, Prof H McCallum
Application Deadline: 23 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (endangered Fleay’s barred frogs and tadpoles) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Evolutionary history and conservation of Australian plant biodiversity
  Assoc Prof M Cardillo
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Macroevolution & Macroecology Group is seeking expressions of interest for a PhD research project in the area of phylogenetics, macroevolution, diversification and conservation.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  PhD in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety
  Dr G Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology.
