  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  The Role of CCR5 in Embryo Development
  Dr R Sturmey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemokines are small peptides that play key roles in cell migration and signalling. They act primarily by binding specific cell surface receptors to drive intracellular signalling and are key mediators of the immune response.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Understanding the impact of placental aging on placental function
  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prolonged pregnancy (>41 weeks gestation) is associated with an increase in perinatal mortality (the death of a baby before or shortly after birth) from a nadir of 1 per 1,000 births at 39 weeks’ to 3 per 1,000 births at 41 weeks which continues to rise beyond this time.
  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.
  Female reproductive investment and ageing: an evolutionary perspective on osteoporosis (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr M Fortes
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals age faster than others, experience age-related diseases earlier, such as osteoporosis, and ultimately live a shorter life.
  Investigating the association between maternal obesity and offspring fertility
  Dr S Bhattacharya, Prof P A Fowler
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mounting evidence suggests that exposure to maternal obesity in the womb programmes the offspring to poor health outcomes in later life.
  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.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  Investigating the impact of beekeeping on wild pollinator populations in rural Cambridgeshire
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr O Norfolk, Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) https://aru.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  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.
  The impact of male partners on breastfeeding initiation, exclusivity, and continuation: An investigation of new and expectant fathers in the UK
  Dr E Doe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project assessing the role male partners play in the initiation, exclusivity and continuation of breastfeeding, with the ultimate aim of intervention design.
  Defining the role of de novo DNA methylation in the regulation of female fertility
  Dr J Tello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovulation disorders are a leading cause of female infertility, present in ~25% of couples who have difficulty conceiving. A women’s fertility is dependent on effectively timing ovulation within a highly-regulated ovarian cycle.
  The application of the science and evidence base of Health Psychology theories and frameworks within mental health settings
  Dr F Satti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project assessing the impact of Health Psychology within mental health settings.
