  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Woodland insect responses to climate change
  Dr S Hayward, Dr J P Sadler, Dr C Pfrang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Forest/woodland systems are major source of biodiversity globally and also play a crucial role in carbon capture/mitigating against rising CO2 levels.
  Sensitivity of aquatic insect eggs to elevated fine sediment and phosphate concentrations in rivers
  Dr M Johnson, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Insect populations are declining at an alarming rate, globally. Aquatic insects have a crucial functional role in the environment and are used to monitor stream impairment.
  Re-thinking insect adaptation to Antarctica’s extreme environments
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Antarctica has been isolated from the other Southern Hemisphere continents for at least 28 million years (Myr). Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice.
  A pilot study of oral immunotherapy as a treatment to desensitise horses with insect bite hypersensitivity to Culicoides spp
  Dr AD Wilson
Applications accepted all year round
The project. Equine Insect Bite Hypersensitivity (IBH) is a Type I IgE-mediated allergy of horses to salivary proteins of Culicoides spp.
  Genetics and molecular basis of insect resistance in forest trees
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Background. Insect pests pose a rapidly growing threat to the sustainability of forest systems as a result of climate change and globalisation of commerce.
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round
Man stores many different products for a variety of purposes. Stored products include food, wood, clothing and also items in museums stored for posterity.
  The biological control of insect pests using predators and parasitoids
  Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on building an understanding of the behavioural and physiological interactions of insect pests and their natural enemies (predators and parasitoids), and using this to develop better approaches to insect pest management in the field.
  Novel biomimetic acoustic sensors inspired by insect hearing
  Prof J Windmill
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position to work on an exciting inter-disciplinary project. The project aims to investigate the hearing organs of various insects, and use this biological knowledge to inspire the development of novel acoustic sensors with biomimetic properties.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
