  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  The genomics of haplo-diploid pollinators
  Dr R Hammond, Dr E Mallon
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Eighty four percent of the crops cultivated in Europe and 70% of crops worldwide are dependent on pollination by insects, particularly the Hymenoptera – the bees, ants and wasps.
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Dryland eucalypts as a floral resource for exotic & native bees in New Zealand
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
Although once forested, the dry lowland regions of eastern New Zealand are now largely devoid of native woody vegetation and dominated by anthropogenic land-use.
