A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form.
  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.

  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  PhD in conservation biology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group works on the assessment of species conservation status using data driven approaches. Using databases on species traits, ecology or trends, we using state-of-the-art modelling approaches to make predictions of future conservation status.

The alarming extinctions of species worldwide pose unprecedented challenges for wildlife and human wellbeing [1].
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Enhancing botany education in Britain
  Dr J Mitchley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are a vital element of the biosphere and without plants there is no animal life. An understanding of plant diversity and the ability to identify, name and understand plants in their habitats (field botany) is essential to underpin ecology, conservation and sustainable development sciences.

  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
