  The genetics of sperm competition in Drosophila pseudoobscura
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sperm competition is a major source of selection on animal mating systems, and studies of Drosophila have shown that genes expressed in male reproductive tissues are amongst the most rapidly evolving between species.
  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.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Evolution of mimicry: Genetic, morphometric, and functional origins of leaf mimicry in singing insects
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimicry is a remarkable Darwinian adaptation, and bush crickets whose wings resemble plant leaves are among the most spectacular examples of mimicry in the natural world.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr G Cooke, Dr S Mowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/behavioural-ecology.
  Beauty is in the ear of the beholder: the role of accent in mate choice
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many forms of communication rely on learned signals1. In animals, learned signals can include courtship displays and dominance and submission behaviours2, 3.
  PhD in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety
  Dr G Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology.
  The evolution of wing shape and flight in mimetic butterflies
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Dr N Nadeau, Dr OM McMillan
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of flight is one of the main drivers of insect success and. diversification. Wing shape is important for aerodynamic performance, but may.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
