  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Prof A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Novel, essential genes in lineages of pest insect species
  Dr K Panfilio, Dr D Hebenstreit
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive insect pest species are a growing problem that severely impacts agriculture and crop plants. The UK Plant Health Risk Register currently recognizes over 1000 specific pests, with beetles (Coleoptera) and bugs (Hemiptera) among those recognized as high profile pests and those with rapidly changing statuses.
  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Assessing the risk to plant health in the UK from future Agrilus invasions
  Dr L Kelly, Prof RA Nichols
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to start in September 2020, jointly supervised by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (Dr Laura Kelly) and Queen Mary (Prof.
  Nano-hydrogel bandage for non-invasive Raman monitoring of chronic wound healing (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wounds (CW), wounds that persist more than 3 months, have been referred to as a major and snowballing public health burden which adversely affects the quality of life.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  Evaluation of West Nile virus transmission risk in the UK
  Prof M Baylis, Dr J Medlock, Dr G Hughes, Dr R Bowden
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

West Nile disease has been sporadically present in certain parts of mainland Europe for about 60 years, but recently it has spread geographically and has increased dramatically in incidence; the number of human cases in 2018 (over two thousand) significantly exceeded previous years, possibly in response to unusually warm weather.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems
  Prof S G Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability.
  Bringing back the ashes – applying metabolomic approaches to save UK ash trees
  Prof M Grant, Assoc Prof L Song
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ash dieback (ADB), caused by the invasive fungus Hymenoscyphus fraxineus (Hf), has been a destructive disease of European ash (Fraxinus excelsior).
