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.
  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.
  Social and transgenerational effects of parasitism: potential impact in a stored product pest
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Prof N Colegrave
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will investigate the impact of infection on host and non-host members of a population across subsequent generations.
  EASTBIO: Live fast, die young: testing the mechanisms linking risk-taking behaviour to the rate of ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Prof K Spencer

  Fruit morphogenetics for seed-size control (OSTERGAARDJ20DTP)
  Prof L Ostergaard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flowering plants evolved during the Cretaceous Period >100 million years ago and quickly colonised terrestrial habitats. A major reason for their success was the formation and diversification of fruits that protect and nurture the developing seeds.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  Impact and Adoption of Quality Protein Maize in Ethiopia
  Dr A Shee
Application Deadline: 20 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ethiopia is one of the most food-insecure countries in Africa where about 7 million school-age children are living in food-insecure parts of the country (Smith, 2013).
  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.
