  Returning to the Ocean: The Transitional Mechanics of Legged Whales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr W Sellers, Dr L Margetts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Darwinian evolution, descent with modification, is elegantly supported by the primary evidence that maps change within recognisable lineages in the fossil record.
  Tracking the use of energy in insect flight
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr G N Askew, Dr S.M. Walker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Insects are amongst the most diverse, successful and economically important orders on earth and flight is key to their success. Flight is one of the most energetically expensive modes of locomotion and there are few aspects of an insect’s ecology, behaviour and physiology that are not affected by its energetic demands.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Fully funded PhD Scholarship - Machine learning and wearable activity recognition
  Dr D Roggen
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Wearable motion sensor data can be interpreted with AI and machine learning techniques to infer human activities and provide contextual assistance, for instance in a wearable fitness coach or for industrial or elderly assistance.
  PhD Studentship in the Institute of Neuroscience: Development and validation of gait digital outcomes as clinical endpoints in Parkinson’s disease
  Prof L Rochester, Dr S Del Din
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. April 2019 for three years. Overview. Interested in working as part of a large international consortium of Academic and industry partners? Do you like working with wearable technology and understanding how the way we walk can help us predict how (well or badly) we age?.
  Flight mechanics of insects - understanding how insects control and sense aerodynamic forces
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S.M. Walker, Dr G N Askew
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Insects are the most agile and manoeuvrable of all flying animals. However, studying their flight presents a complex challenge. In the time that it takes a human to blink, a blowfly can beat its wings 50 times, powering and controlling each wingbeat using numerous tiny muscles - some as thin as a human hair.
  Structure studies of centrosomal and ciliary proteins to understand the molecular mechanisms of ciliopathies
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr T Ochi
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The aim of this PhD project is to determine the molecular assembly mechanism of a structure of the centriole / basal body by a combined approach of structure biology (cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography) and biochemistry in order to understand underlying mechanisms that cause ciliopathies and cancer.
  Tryptophan metabolism and fruit fly behaviour: implications for psychosis
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou, Mr C Breda
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degrades contains several neuroactive metabolites which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  The dopaminergic basis of behaviour
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McCutcheon
Applications accepted all year round
The neurotransmitter dopamine has an important role in the vertebrate brain, modulating behaviours that include locomotion, aggression, feeding and reward.
