  Evolution and ecology of extractive foraging in birds and mammals
  Prof RA Barton, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Extractive foraging is the act of locating and processing embedded or encased foods such as underground plant storage organs, wood-boring arthropods, shellfish or plant parts protected by a thorny, tough or hard matrix (1-3).
  Understanding reintroduction biases in mammals & birds
  Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The reintroduction of threatened species is an increasingly vital conservation tool in a time of rapid anthropogenic environmental change (1).
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  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.
  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).
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round
Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  RVC PhD: Investigating the role of neuropilin 1 in tissue regeneration using the caudal fin regeneration model
  Dr C Pellet-Many, Prof C Wheeler Jones
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Background. Wound healing and tissue regeneration are complex processes involving several cell types and are mediated by a variety of cytokines under a tight spatio-temporal regulation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Chitinase-like proteins (CLP) as first responders to infection and injury: understanding CLP-glycosaminoglycan interactions
  Prof T Day, Prof J Allen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Parasitic worms (helminths) infect most mammals including a third of the human population. Although rarely causing death, these parasites cause significant morbidity in part by the damage they inflict while migrating through the tissues.
  New insights into cell cycle-dependent control of transcription: implications for cancer
  Prof A Sharrocks, Dr P Shore
Applications accepted all year round
Defects in the cell cycle are the underlying basis to cancer. Work in my lab is aimed at understanding the molecular basis to tumourigenesis through studying pathways which impact on the cell cycle and are deregulated in cancer.
