  Long distance drone tracking of key pollinators in agricultural and natural landscapes
  Dr P Cross, Dr J Lim
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many plant species, including numerous agricultural ones, depend on pollinator services; yet agricultural intensification and urbanisation have caused habitat loss and fragmentation, leading to substantial declines of some pollinators.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
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.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The effect of managed honeybees on wild pollinator networks.
  Dr A Malhotra, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing interest in beekeeping using the western honeybee Apis mellifera has led to concerns that managed bees may negatively affect wild pollinators (including other wild bees, flies, butterflies, moths, beetles and hemipterans).
  Hard-wired for success? Unravelling genomic signatures in pollinators.
  Dr M Knight, Dr J Ellis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pollinator species, recognised as essential for ecosystem function, are undergoing rapid declines. One recent exception is the ‘Tree Bumblebee’ Bombus hypnorum.
  Floral Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) signalling in response to air pollution and climate change
  Dr F Hayes, Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 88% of flowering plant species depend on insect pollinators. Although flowers and their visual cues are known to be important for pollinators, more recently it has been shown that VOCs are also important signals at distances of.
  Developing and testing behavioural theory for mutualistic networks. PhD in Psychology (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr A Higginson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Andrew Higginson, Department of Psychology, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  The context dependence of disease spread and virulence in a pollinator system
  Dr P Graystock
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the factors placing insect pollinators at risk is a research priority with our future food security reliant on the health of these important organisms.
  Nutrigenomics and the resilience of bees in a changing climate
  Dr J Gilbert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecosystem stability and global food security depend upon healthy populations of bees, our foremost pollinators. Bees provide pollination services worth hundreds of billions of pounds annually.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  EASTBIO: Pesticide problems for honey bees: a closer look in our towns.
  Dr A Bowman, Dr L Trembleau, Ms F Highet, Dr M Taylor
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Supervisors. Dr Alan Bowman (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/a.bowman. Dr Laurent Trembleau (University of Aberdeen).
  Long-term effects of pesticides on environmental health – how does exposure of a female egg-laying insect to pesticides affect subsequent generations?
  Dr C Breuker, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr R Davies, Dr M Taylor, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Intensive agriculture is a key driver of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  Conservation genomics of bumble bees (CENTA2-GENE4-HAMM)
  Dr R Hammond, Dr S Beleza
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bumble bees are a diverse group of key pollinators that suffer from the negative impact of anthropogenic change. This results in declining and fragmented populations that impacts on the bees themselves and so on the wild flowers and crops that they pollinate [2].

  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
