  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.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof J Hurst
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
  PhD in Crop Domestication and Improvement
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. We invite applications for a PhD in the area of crop domestication and improvement.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.

  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.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  PhD Scholarship in Molecular Virology/Structural Biology
  Dr SS Sarker
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular Virology and Structural Biology is a key driver to understand virus evolution and viral protein/DNA interacting interfaces, which are critical in the viral infection and assembly processes.
  Social dynamics in chimpanzees
  Dr N Koyama
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

LJMU Primatology Research Group (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/primatology-research-group). Research Centre in Evolutionary Anthropology & Palaeoecology (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/research-centre-in-evolutionary-anthropology-and-palaeoecology).
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Proteome-level diversity in RNA viruses
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr E Hutchinson, Dr R Burchmore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Edward Hutchison. Dr Richard Burchmore. Project summary. RNA viruses are major threats to human and animal health and account for the majority of emerging infectious diseases.
  BioDAR: Using Weather Radars to Examine Biodiversity
  Dr R Neely, Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview and Scientific need. Weather radar scan the entirety of the UK every 5 minutes, and similar types of radar are used around the world.
  The impact of sensory pollution on fish navigation.
  Dr C Newport, Dr T Burt de Perera
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals use senses to gather information. However, sensory systems are not perfect and cannot always detect a clear signal. Interfering external sources can cause ‘sensory pollution’ thereby interrupting normal behaviour.
  Determining how ancient human societies and historic climate change have shaped Egypt’s mammalian fauna and its implications for our understanding of the links between people and the environment
  Dr J Bro-Jorgensen, Prof CD Thomas, Dr S Snape
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  PhD in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety
  Dr G Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology.
  The coherence of stability across ecological scales under multiple stressors
  Dr A Beckerman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental property of populations, communities and ecosystems is their stability. Functionally stable ecosystems provide clean water, food and maintain biodiversity.
