  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.
  Son preference and sex selection: Diffusion processes and re-evaluation of policies in India.
  Dr S Dubuc
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amartya Sen’s seminal article ‘More Than 100 Million Women Are Missing’ in 1990, brought the topic of sex-selection against females to global attention and inspired academic work in the field1.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Maternal effects have important roles in a broad range of ecological and evolutionary processes, such as population dynamics, phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary responses to selection.
  Mathematical Modelling of the Bovine Reproductive Cycle
  Dr L Creedon, Dr M McAfee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will create mathematical models of aspects of the reproductive cycle of cows. The techniques used will include systems of ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, and networks/graphs.
  Psychology

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psychological research is led by Prof. Brendan Gough (Director of Research) and is conducted within the School of Social Sciences, mainly by staff working in Psychology and Speech & Language Science, but also by a few colleagues in Criminology.
  Carbon Capture for Soil Ecosystem Service Enhancement (REIDUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Reid, Dr A Harwood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Over the last century, agriculture has caused soil erosion and the loss of soil organic carbon on an enormous scale.
  Volcanic ash, soil development and resilience in a changing climate: a case study from Montserrat (BARCLAYUENV20ARIES)
  Prof J Barclay, Dr B Reid, Dr T Armijos, Dr M Cave
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a volcanic island in possession of some ash must become extremely fertile.
  Climate change, microbiota, and speciation
  Dr T Price, Dr J Ferrai, Dr Z Lewis
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim. to understand the impact of high temperatures on gut microbes, and whether this will be a problem as the climate changes. Background.
  Regulation of mitotic and meiotic chromosome function by different cohesin complexes
  Research Group: Meiosis
  Dr E Martinez-Perez
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohesin, the complex that provides sister chromatid cohesion (SCC) to ensure correct chromosome segregation during cell division, belongs to a family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) proteins conserved from bacteria to humans (1).
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Could heatwave impacts through reproduction damage insect populations? (GAGEUBIO20ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco, Dr I Bedford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 driving mechanisms still remain poorly understood.
  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.
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve sustainability of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr J.L. Snaddon, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity tropical areas, alongside a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge in many countries with tropical climates.
  Spermatozoa navigation in complex environments
  Dr V Kantsler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will undertake research on mammalian spermatozoa motility in a complex microfluidic environment. One of the major puzzles in biology is how mammalian sperm navigates its way through the complex environment female reproductive tract.
