  The macroevolutionary diversification and elaboration of antlers in deer
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The antlers of members of the deer family have long captivated naturalists around the world. Among evolutionary biologists, antlers have become a textbook example of what is known as positive allometry—a relationship where larger individuals have disproportionately large antlers.
  SCENARIO: Climate and Speciation in the Mediterranean biome
  Dr A Culham, Dr J David, Dr JS Singarayer, Dr C Yesson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Mediterranean basin is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots yet patterns of distribution and diversification of species that are key to maintaining this biodiversity are still poorly understood.
  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.
  Dissecting the role of DNA methylation in spiral cleavage
  Dr JM Martin, Dr R Lowe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Nearly all animals originate during a process called embryogenesis, in which a single cell – the zygote – develops into a multicellular complex organism.
  Sensory adaptations to convergent micro-habitats - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S Montgomery, Prof N W Roberts
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals tune in to the most relevant information in their environment? Microhabitat partitioning between mimicry rings in Neotropical butterflies provides a case study in adaptation to different sensory environments.
  *NERC E4* Ecological genomics of the British Flora
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Twyford, Prof P Hollingsworth
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply.

  The Red Queen versus the Court Jester: do biotic or extrinsic factors shape the reptilian tree of life?
  Dr G Lloyd, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Living reptiles – the group that includes turtles, lizards, snakes, crocodiles, and birds – represent a highly successful radiation of terrestrial vertebrates containing roughly four times as many species as their sister clade, the mammals.
  Inner ear development and evolution - investigating prenatal development of the inner ear region at the micro and macro-anatomical level
  Dr N Jeffery
Applications accepted all year round
Sound and head movements are detected by the inner ear, providing signals that are integral to how species move, interact and survive (e.g.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
