  Optimize tools to study gene functions in pest invertebrates with a focus on aphids and whiteflies (HOGENHOUTJ20CASE)
  Dr S Hogenhout
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is a three-way collaboration of the laboratories of Saskia Hogenhout (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK), Grant Hughes (Liverpool School of Medicine (LSTMed), UK) and Marcus Guest (Syngenta, Jealotts Hill, UK) to develop gene knock-out technologies for the aphid Myzus persicae and the tobacco whitefly Bemisia tabaci.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  A Statistical Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Bryozoan Mineralogy
  Dr P Dillingham, Prof D Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Bryozoans are one of the most mineralogically-complex phyla in the sea. These small colonial invertebrates make hard skeletons from seawater in any of three carbonate minerals, sometimes in various combinations, in response to controls that are intrinsic (phylogeny, development) and extrinsic (environment).
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  Green cities: how our decisions affect landscape biodiversity

  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Competition amongst endemic lizard species on a tropical island (Round Island, Mauritius)
  Prof W Symondson, Dr I Vaughan, Dr P Orozco Ter Wengel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Round Island, Mauritius, hosts a community of rare endemic lizard species. Their environment was cleared of most vegetation by introduced goats and rabbits (now eliminated).
  Investigating neuronal patterning and development
  Dr F Mackenzie, Prof A Walker, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal patterning and neural development using ex vivo/in vitro methods (mouse/human tissue/cells) and/or in vivo methods (invertebrates).
  Kidneys in a dish: epithelial polarity and tube formation in human renal organoids
  Dr K Roeper
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelia constitute one of the major tissue types in all animals and form the basic building blocks of tubular organs in both vertebrates and invertebrates.
