  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
  Chemical defense strategies of plants and evasion strategies of feeding insects – A systems biology approach
  Prof S Schuster, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. In plant-herbivore interactions, plants frequently produce toxic defense compounds, while insect herbivores frequently develop counter-defenses.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round
“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Detoxification of diterpene resin acids by the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
  Prof J Gershenzon, Prof E. Kothe, Dr A Schmidt
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Many insect species feed on plants containing toxic defense compounds without any apparent negative effects. Since many such insects are important agricultural or forestry pests, scientists have been making intensive efforts to discover how insects can overcome chemical defenses.
  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.
  Molecular basis of hearing in Insects
  Dr B Warren
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019
The newly-founded Warren lab is after an ambitious and resilient PhD student to work on hearing in the desert locust.
  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.
  PhD: Enhancing utilisation of alternative crops using fermentation
  Dr Y Lim
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Yin Sze Lim(PI) (Biosciences, UNM), John Brameld (Biosciences, UK), Tim Parr(Biosciences, UK), Andy Salter (Biosciences, UK).
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  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.
