  Trait-based approaches for predicting mosquito distributions under environmental change
  Dr B Purse, Prof A Callaghan, Dr S White, Dr W Wint
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Imprinting and ploidy in a social insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project asks how can imprinted genes exist in a haplodiploid organism.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round
Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Stressed! How do animals cope with what life throws at them?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animals face many environmental stresses, and this is only likely to get worse as we face an era of rapid climate change. This brings into sharp focus the need to understand what the responses to stressors are and what molecular mechanisms underpin the strategies animals use to cope with stress.
  Climate change in the Peruvian Amazon: assessing and modelling the role of invertebrates in wood decay and carbon cycling under changing flood dynamics
  Dr K Barrett, Dr M Burns
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Accurately measuring carbon fluxes in tropical forests is important due to their role in understanding and mitigating climate change.
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  The aphid microbiome: ecological and evolutionary dynamics of multispecies interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
All organisms face a multitude of environmental threats and have to. adapt to overcome these challenges. Many insects get help from an.
  The toxic challenge: how do we control mosquito populations responsibly in small tropical island ecosystems?
  Dr R Gill, Dr L Cator, Dr A Burt
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
The use of chemical insecticides to control insect pest species is the most adopted strategy across the globe.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round
“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
