  Investigating the association between maternal obesity and offspring fertility
  Dr S Bhattacharya, Prof P A Fowler
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mounting evidence suggests that exposure to maternal obesity in the womb programmes the offspring to poor health outcomes in later life.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of the male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes.
  Defining the role of de novo DNA methylation in the regulation of female fertility
  Dr J Tello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovulation disorders are a leading cause of female infertility, present in ~25% of couples who have difficulty conceiving. A women’s fertility is dependent on effectively timing ovulation within a highly-regulated ovarian cycle.
  The role of the rumen microbiome in detoxifying forage mycotoxins and improving dairy cow health and welfare
  Prof L A Sinclair
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project aim. To determine the effect of the rumen microbiome in detoxifying mycotoxins in grass silage when fed to dairy cows.
  Psychology

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psychological research is led by Prof. Brendan Gough (Director of Research) and is conducted within the School of Social Sciences, mainly by staff working in Psychology and Speech & Language Science, but also by a few colleagues in Criminology.
  VC International Scholarship: Women’s Labour Supply and Employment in the Global South
  Prof M Jones, Dr E Kaya
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiff University Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarships for Research Excellence offer seven eligible applicants the opportunity to join our Doctoral Academy community for three years on a full-time basis.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Dietary sugars / sweeteners during pregnancy and their impact on long term metabolic and reproductive health
  Dr C Reynolds
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is significant evidence that an unhealthy diet greatly increases the risk of complications during pregnancy and predisposes offspring to metabolic dysfunction and obesity.
  Structural and functional analysis of the meiotic synaptonemal complex
  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
  Dr J Higgins, Prof E Louis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Meiotic recombination generates novel allelic combinations and is required for normal fertility in sexually reproducing organisms.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys
  Prof J Leake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure.
  Microbial establishment on growing rhizoplanes
  Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial activity in soil and associations with plants are essential to nutrient availability, soil biodiversity and fertility. Plants are active in the colonization process and secrete compounds that stimulate or repress specific soil microbes [1].
