  KESS2 East PhD in Chemistry: Developing non-insecticide control of codling moth and related pests using the synthetic moth sex pheromones for South Wales fresh food production
  Prof RK Allemann, Prof J Pickett
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project in the School of Chemistry, in collaboration with the commercial partner Lisk & Jones Consultants Ltd will research the development of high-performance sex pheromone pest control for fresh fruit and vegetables in the South Wales region.

景观变化对农田节肢动物多样性以及生物防治的影响.
  Reducing harm to wildlife from rodent pest control strategies
  Prof JL Hurst, Prof P Stockley, Prof R Shore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Current strategies to control rodent pests have substantial environmental impact, relying on baits that are highly toxic to vertebrates and attract non-target species such as wood mice, bank voles and field voles.
  Gifts that keep on giving: maternal effects and insect pest control (CHAPMANU20DTP1)
  Prof T Chapman, Dr P Leftwich
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will train at the interface of genetic engineering and fundamental biology to understand the role of maternal RNAs in early development.
  Turning Up the Heat on Pest Insect Reproduction: Optimising Thermal Control in Dry Food Storage Facilities (GAGEU20DTP)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stored product insect pests seriously damage global food production, especially in developing countries. Chemical methods to control these pests are either becoming regulated due to health concerns or environmental damage, or have become less effective as resistance evolves.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
