  Reproductive interference across continental scales: combining citizen science and behavioural experiments to test reproductive character displacement hypotheses
  Dr J Drury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social interactions between species impact numerous ecological and evolutionary processes. For instance, wasteful reproductive interactions between species (reproductive interference) may prevent two species from coexisting in the same location unless natural selection drives divergence in traits used as mating signals.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Reproductive interference for insect control (CHAPMANU20DTP2)
  Prof T Chapman, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will train at the interface of fundamental reproductive biology, bioinformatics and genetic engineering, to develop proof-of-principle for the use of reproductive interference as complementary new method for insect control.
  Mathematical Modelling of the Bovine Reproductive Cycle
  Dr L Creedon, Dr M McAfee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will create mathematical models of aspects of the reproductive cycle of cows. The techniques used will include systems of ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, and networks/graphs.
  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.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  (MRC DTP) Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
