  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Evolutionary quantitative genetics in the wild: behaviour, growth and fitness in Soay sheep
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contemporary natural selection frequently appears to favour the evolution of increased body size. However, corresponding evolutionary responses of body size, of magnitudes predicted by evolutionary quantitative genetic theory, are frequently not observed.
  Immune Responses to Salivary Biomarkers as Tools to Understand the Epidemiology of Vector Borne Diseases
  Dr J Sternberg, Dr A Bowman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Haematophagous (blood-feeding) arthropods may act as vectors for serious parasitic diseases to humans and livestock. Examples include ticks (Lyme diseases, tick-borne encephalitis, theileriosis), Hemipteran Bugs (Chagas disease), Tsetse Flies (African trypanosomiasis), Mosquitoes (malaria, filariasis, dengue etc).
  Animal and Robotics Interactions: Deploying UAV's to Enable Proximal Sensing and Management of Livestock
  Assoc Prof M Trotter, Prof S Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between animals and robotics is an emerging and exciting area of cross-disciplinary research. There are numerous opportunities for robotics, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in particular, to make an impact on the way in which livestock are managed.
  Determination of Listeria monocytogenes virulence in an invertebrate model Project ID SAS0045
  Dr N Wheelhouse, Prof I Singleton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) is a bacterium which is ubiquitous in the environment and the causative agent of listeriosis, a major food-borne disease affecting humans and livestock.
  Resistance Evolution in Response to Emerging Wildlife Disease. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr B Tschirren
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barbara Tschirren, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology and Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  PhD in evolutionary genetics
  Prof J Slate
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group integrates genomics approaches and tools with ecological data collected from long-term studies of vertebrates. We aim to understand how genetic variation is maintained and how evolutionary change occurs.
