  Microbial lipid cycling in the oceans: an integrated ‘omics’ approach
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Marine microbes meet omics. World-leading supervisory team on marine microbiology and ecology. Uniquely opportunity at Warwick to apply cutting-edge techniques on integrated omics.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic system
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen, Dr D Kumaresan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Almost all plants on the planet are attacked by at least one, if not many, insect herbivores. Many of these insects have become pests of crops and they impact crop productivity.
  Adapting methods from statistical ecology and applying them to molecular data in cancer
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a number of questions that arise from proteomic and RNA studies in cancer that have clear parallels in the world of ecology.
  Bovine TB: Reconstructing the molecular evolution of Mycobacterium bovis
  Prof P Prodohl, Dr R Hynes
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious mycobacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. bovis, a pathogenic member of the M.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine.
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Man stores many different products for a variety of purposes. Stored products include food, wood, clothing and also items in museums stored for posterity.
