  MicroRNA evolution in placental mammals: Unravelling conservation and divergence in their regulatory mechanisms in early pregnancy in different placental mammals.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr N Forde, Dr M. O'Connell, Prof K.A. Forbes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project brings together, in a novel manner, the research areas of placental and uterine biology, computational molecular evolutionary biology, as well as microRNA regulation to understand how miRNAs may have contributed to the emergence of placental mammals.
  What Impacts do Invasive Species have on African Wild Mammals?
  Dr W Dawson, Prof R Hill
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Large areas of land in Kenya have been invaded by introduced plant species.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Evolution and genomics of mortality and senescence in tetrapods
  Dr A Urrutia
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).
  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).
  Reproductive suppression in mammals: social mediators and implications for conservation
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Reproductive suppression occurs in diverse mammalian species and may be defined broadly as the inhibition of reproductive physiology or behaviour in response to environmental conditions.
  The role of lipid-store body condition in the behaviour and reproduction of cetaceans
  Prof P Miller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Body condition, here defined as the quantity of energy stores carried in the fat (lipid) stores of an individual, reflects an integration of metabolic costs and foraging success - but also reflects the reproductive needs of the individual in their life cycle (Miller et al., 2011).
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
  Brain evolution in pre-mammalian cynodonts and the role of intraspecific variation
  Dr S Lautenschlager
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Modern mammals are distinguished from other vertebrate groups by a number of distinctive characters, which include the trend towards a large brain (in comparison to body size) and an expanded neocortex.
  Epigenetic control of transgenerational genome plasticity
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Epigenetics is the major discipline studying heritable changes of gene activity that do not involve changes in the underlying DNA sequence.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
