  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: How have gene family duplications shaped the disparity and diversity of mammal clades?
  Prof M A Wills
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Oxidative Shielding of Sperm and Inter-generational Costs of Reproduction in a Wild African Mammal
  Dr J Blount
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Interactions between environmental change and exploitation on tropical mammal megafauna
  Dr M Struebig
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
An extinction crisis looms in Southeast Asia. While habitat loss and climate change are renowned threats to tropical biodiversity (Struebig 2015), many species are also hunted or persecuted.
  Selection and evolution of coat colour in a wild mammal
  Prof J Slate, Dr D Childs, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
This project offers the opportunity to study evolutionary genetics as part of the Soay sheep project, one of the most data-rich long-term studies of any vertebrate in the world.
  *IAPETUS* Selection and genetics of life history in a wild mammal population
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how individuals allocate reproductive effort through their lives is fundamental to understanding the process of evolutionary adaptation, and has major implications for understanding other key processes such as population regulation and the evolution of senescence [1,2].
  After the gold rush: vertebrate communities in abandoned gold mines and implications for restoration
  Dr J Bicknell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Across Amazonia, small scale gold mining is on the rise (Kalamandeen et al. 2018). Over the last decade, this has led to a sharp increase in localised deforestation.
  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  HDR Scholarship - Wildlife to Wellbeing; the multiple values of citizen science and new technology. A unique cross-disciplinary PhD opportunity
  Prof D Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Biodiversity, including our native plants and animals, faces many threats, with many species undergoing severe declines. Arresting these declines requires up-to-date knowledge of changes in biodiversity and a solid engagement of society with nature.
  Camera trapping and the ecology of the imperilled Scottish wildcat
  Dr P Stephens, Dr R Campbell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Scottish wildcats have recently been recognised as one of Britain’s most endangered mammal species, with a population unlikely to number in excess of a few hundred individuals.
  Fantastic fat and the evolution of capital and income breeding strategies in seals
  Dr A Welch, Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aims. Seals are often considered icons for how organisms evolve to adapt to their environment, and they have developed several strategies to finance their breeding attempts.
