  Plant-insect interactions in a changing world
  Dr S Gripenberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to a number of important ecosystem functions.
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  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.

  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Neglected tropical diseases caused by the Dengue virus (DENV), endemic Dengue fever and its more severe manifestation, Dengue syndrome, cause great socioeconomic loss as well as high mortality in Asia and South America.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
