  Declining Male Fertility: Investigations of plausible environmental risk factors in the Racehorse Breeding Stallion
  Dr R Sumner
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this studentship is to assess the fertility potential of breeding stallions and explore a possible environmental aetiology.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  BBSRC iCase Project: Enhancing Barley Environmental Stress Tolerance Through Targeted Mutagenesis
  Dr G Mendiondo, Dr D Cook
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global warming and the predicted impact on seasonal rainfall variation suggest that we may see both drier and wetter growing seasons in the future.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Molecular basis of balanced color polymorphisms in grasshoppers
  Prof H Schielzeth
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. All species are phenotypically variable, but in some species, multiple distinct color morphs coexist in local populations.
  PhD Scholarship - Where no eyes can see: Tracking Australian shorebird migration using radar (UQ/Exeter Joint PhD)
  Dr R Fuller
Application Deadline: 20 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than five million migratory shorebirds visit Australia each year from Asian breeding grounds, where they spend the non-breeding season on wetlands throughout the continent.
  Dissecting cereal vernalization in the field and on the chromosome
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr L Dixon, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 21 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the essential crops across the world are monocot cereal plants (eg. rice, maize, wheat). However, the challenges to maintain and improve the yield of these crops are increasing.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Role of Auxin in Phytophthora Root Rot Disease Development in Soft Fruit
  Dr E Gilroy, Dr C Simpson, Prof M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brief Introduction. Phytophthora species that infect soft fruit are currently poorly understood and understudied pathogens. They cause significant economic and environmental impact on soft fruit production in the UK.
  Behavioural ecology, disease biology and immuno-ecology in Malagasy shorebirds
  Prof O Kruger, Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating systems and parental behaviour are among the most diverse social behaviours, and recent research suggests that the social environment influences these behaviours.
  The scent of Madagascar plovers: communication or concealment?
  Dr B Caspers, Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating systems and parental behaviour are among the most diverse social behaviours, and recent research suggests that the social environment influences these behaviours.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
