  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

“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.
  Global insect declines? Assessing the resilience of urban insects
  Dr K Parr, Dr R Jeffreys, Dr K L Evans
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Insects are biodiverse and critical for many ecosystem processes but are potentially in huge trouble. Recent studies suggest insect populations may be declining precipitously both in human-disturbed and natural environments.
  Evolution of mimicry: Genetic, morphometric, and functional origins of leaf mimicry in singing insects
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimicry is a remarkable Darwinian adaptation, and bush crickets whose wings resemble plant leaves are among the most spectacular examples of mimicry in the natural world.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr R Davies, Dr M Taylor, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Intensive agriculture is a key driver of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  Learning to communicate: How do pheromones work in social and solitary bees and how did they evolve?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Honeybees, bumblebees and other bee species are facing a multitude of threats from disease, pesticide exposure and loss of habitat.
  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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  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.
