  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  Investigating the developmental genetic mechanisms controlling the timing of body segmentation in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.D. Peel, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Prof I A Hope
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The arthropods (flies, beetles, spiders etc.) have obvious externally visible repeating body units, while vertebrates exhibit internal segmentation in the form of vertebrae, ribs and associated muscle.
  Bioinformatic studies of mobile DNAs in vertebrates
  Prof J F Y Brookfield, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round
44% of the human genome, and similar proportions in other vertebrate species, consists of mobile DNAs or their inactive descendants.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The role of life histories and population age structure in the invasion success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, can cause huge ecological and economic damage. With increasing global trade, the number of new alien species is growing rapidly, and identifying which ones will be future invaders is an urgent global challenge.
  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  After the gold rush: vertebrate communities in abandoned gold mines and implications for restoration
  Dr J Bicknell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Across Amazonia, small scale gold mining is on the rise (Kalamandeen et al. 2018). Over the last decade, this has led to a sharp increase in localised deforestation.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round
The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  The effects of ocean climate change on environmental niches of pelagic sharks
  Prof D Sims, Dr R Marsh
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Shifts in the distributions and abundance of marine organisms are occurring globally as a major consequence of climate change.
  Expression and function of homeobox genes during regeneration in cephalochordates
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Invertebrate communities in hollowing trees
  Dr T H Jones, Prof L Boddy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. In standing trees, most decay occurs in the heartwood (heart-rot). The rotted hearts of trees release nutrients for tree growth and provide habitat for assemblages of saproxylic bacteria and fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates.
