This studentship will align with the strategic priorities of the Leicester British Heart Foundation Accelerator Award. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the main causes of death and disability in the UK and many other countries.
  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  Construction and attentional control of complex thought and behaviour
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Prof P Bright, Dr M Pake, Dr I van der Linde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  EASTBIO: Towards a systems-level understanding of visually-guided reaching
  Dr I Duguid, Dr M H Henning
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Reaching and grasping is an essential component of our everyday lives. We use visual information regarding object type and position and combine this with exquisite and adaptable motor control to successfully interact with objects in our environment.
  The Genomic Basis of Life History in a Natural Population
  Prof T A Burke, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traits that have more influence on an individual’s fitness are known to be under stronger selection and to have lower heritabilities.
  *EASTBIO* Can we predict supergenes? Testing the genetic basis of a colour polymorphism in an aposematic bug.
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Understanding the genetic basis of traits remains central to understanding fundamental biological questions – such as how genetic variation maintained in populations – and to developing genetic interventions for beneficial or pest species.
