  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.

The production of many key crops involved in nutrition security (especially as a source of vitamins) benefits strongly from insect pollination, e.g.

  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  The genetic basis of recent loss of self-incompatibility in North American Arabidopsis lyrata
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr A Tedder, Dr K Poterlowicz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shift to self-pollination (or selfing) is one of the most prevalent evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Charles Darwin (1876) studied selfing using extensive ecological experiments.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr R Davies, Dr M Taylor, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Intensive agriculture is a key driver of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
