  Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield, Dr M Vallejo-Marin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  Reproductive interference across continental scales: combining citizen science and behavioural experiments to test reproductive character displacement hypotheses
  Dr J Drury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social interactions between species impact numerous ecological and evolutionary processes. For instance, wasteful reproductive interactions between species (reproductive interference) may prevent two species from coexisting in the same location unless natural selection drives divergence in traits used as mating signals.
  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.

  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Sleep in the wild: reproductive benefits and health costs of natural sleep deprivation in fallow deer
  Dr I Capellini, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Like us, animals sleep. When sleeping, animals do not perform any of the activities that enhance their chance of survival or reproduction, such as feeding, finding mates or raising offspring.

  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr R Richter, Dr J Fontana
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Extracellular matrix (ECM) is found around and between virtually every cell in our bodies and it is this substance that organises cells into organs and provides our tissues with their particular mechanical properties.
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Winners and Losers: Understanding the impacts of urbanisation on a well-known garden bird, the Blue Tit
  Dr A Welch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urbanisation has transformed habitats across much of the world, leading to altered local environmental conditions, increased pollution, changes in community composition, and altered food availability.
  Investigating the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms facilitating the rapid divergence of male genitalia in Drosophila
