  Orangutan behavioural ecology in wild and captive settings
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr J M Chappell
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical forest environments are mechanically very complex; they consist of a 3-D array of branches and vines that are flexible, irregular and discontinuous.
  PhD position on dynamic modelling of animal behaviours using machine learning, intelligent sensors and computational ethology
  Dr T Norton
Applications accepted all year round
The laboratory of Measure, Model, Manage Bio-Responses (M3-BIORES) is a world-leading research laboratory focussing on real-time monitoring and management of animal behaviours.
  Cooperation in natural and experimental populations of bacteria and insects
  Prof S West
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Cooperation occurs at all level of biological organisation. Genes cooperate to form genomes, bacteria cells cooperate to overcome their hosts, and animals form cooperative societies.
  Wild minds: how do apes learn about and use their physical environments?
  Dr J M Chappell, Dr S K Thorpe
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The tropical forest environments in which the great ape species (including humans) evolved are dynamic, complex and challenging. Trees in tropical forests tend to fruit episodically.
  Interactions between environmental change and exploitation on tropical mammal megafauna
  Dr M Struebig
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
An extinction crisis looms in Southeast Asia. While habitat loss and climate change are renowned threats to tropical biodiversity (Struebig 2015), many species are also hunted or persecuted.
  Combatting Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr J Wetton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  Reproductive suppression in mammals: social mediators and implications for conservation
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Reproductive suppression occurs in diverse mammalian species and may be defined broadly as the inhibition of reproductive physiology or behaviour in response to environmental conditions.
  Invasive infectious disease, climate change and amphibian conservation: current and future threats to Sardinian amphibian biodiversity
  Dr T Garner, Prof R. Griffiths
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisors. Prof Trent Garner (Institute of Zoology). Prof Richard Griffiths (University of Kent, Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology).
  Combating Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr C A May
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from trafficking high-value, CITES-protected, endangered species between countries, fraudulent misidentification of by-catch fish filleted at sea (estimated at ~25%), through to substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  Copy number variation in gibbon genomes
  Dr E Hollox, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Genome structure, including the number and arrangement of chromosomes (called the karyotype), is relatively stable across evolutionary time, with only a few small changes between human and gorilla karyotypes, for example.
