  Oxidative Shielding of Sperm and Inter-generational Costs of Reproduction in a Wild African Mammal
  Dr J Blount
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  The sperm factor: understanding selection at the gametic level for adaptation to changing environments (IMMLERUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr S Immler, Dr L Spurgin, Dr Iain Macaulay
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
A rapid response to changes in the environment is key to the successful survival of a population or species in the currently changing climate.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round
Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  High Throughput Phenotypic Screening for Drug Discovery in Male Fertility/Infertility
  Dr C Barratt, Dr P Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
Infertility is a significant global problem affecting ~1 in 7, or ~80 million couples (Barratt et al., 2017).
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
  Making the male: the impact of germline gene networks on plant and crop fertility
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Plant fertility and food security depend upon sexual reproduction and the vital role of the male and female germlines which differentiate to produce sperm and female (egg) gametes.
  Assessing the breadth and depth of heatwave impacts on reproduction across insect systems (GAGEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Earth’s climate is changing, and heatwaves are becoming more frequent and extreme. Biodiversity is responding to these changes by shifting ranges, declining and going extinct, but the proximate drivers remain poorly understood.
  Genetic Control of Plant and Crop Fertility: Understanding the Impact of Key Gene Networks on Pollen and Gamete Fitness
  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round
Plant fertility and food security depend upon the vital role of pollen grains, which deliver the male gametes required for fertilisation and seed production.
  The ecology of a sex-ratio distorting meiotic driver
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aim. to understand how the behaviour, genetics, and ecology of a fly is affected by a selfish X chromosome. Background. Gene drive systems are selfish genes that manipulate reproduction to enhance their transmission, at a cost to the rest of the genome.
  From genes to species: Investigating the contribution of evolutionary change in tartan to mating behaviour and reproductive isolation.
  Dr M D Santos-Nunes, Dr S Arif
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The genetic basis underlying the vast diversity observed in animal male genitalia has eluded evolutionary research for decades. Recently we uncovered a gene that explains a large difference in organ size between species.
