  Advanced Image Processing and Machine Learning Techniques for Complex Multidimensional Imaging Data
  Dr B Obara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD in Computer Science at Durham University, UK. The project will develop techniques and methods for processing and analysis of complex multidimensional image data, with applications in biology, medicine, engineering, remote sensing, and arts and humanities.
  Developing polymer-based diagnostics for bacterial disease
  Dr CS Mahon
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern healthcare has enabled vast improvements in human life expectancy and quality of life, yet a significant barrier to further improvements in treatments of many diseases is the lack of rapid diagnostic tests to enable their timely identification.
  Funded PhD studentship in Perception and Learning (NewSense project)
  Dr M Nardini
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3-year full-time PhD studentship is available at the Department of Psychology at Durham University, UK, to start in October 2020.
  Predicting risk and planning mitigation against regional impact from climate change on populations of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpines)
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr E McClymont, Dr M C Lucas
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arctic char have a circumpolar distribution in high boreal, alpine and arctic habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. Many southern populations are stationary in freshwater habitats, but some especially in the north are anadromous (moving between marine and freshwater habitats).
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Prof OE Gaggiotti
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Kelp forests are amongst the world’s most productive and extensive habitats, rivalling the productivity of tropical rainforests.
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr P Berggren
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. There is a long tradition in conservation genetics of using neutral genetic markers to assess demographic patterns and processes relevant to conservation.
  The impact of deforestation on an obligate ant/plant farming symbiosis
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  Climate impacts on terrestrial nomadic and resident birds of the Australian interior
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Australia experienced during 2010 and 2011 rainfall of a scale and intensity that was unprecedented in recorded history, driven by the strongest La Niňa weather pattern since 1917.
  Simulating the global avian soundscape now and into the future
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Despite a relatively good knowledge of the distribution of the world’s birds, our understanding of their population sizes across areas is, at best, fragmentary, and often completely lacking.
  Biodiversity colonisation of the Arctic under climate change: impacts on land, sea and people
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Climate is changing rapidly across the Arctic region, as well as across lower northern latitudes. As a consequence, there are widespread expectations that many species from temperate regions will move into Arctic ecosystems in the near future, and such changes are already being observed.
  Using zoos to protect climate change threatened taxa and to understand species traits for wildlife tourism
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Modern zoos have multiple objectives including public recreation and education, and aiding ex situ species conservation; the latter being increasingly important.
  EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We're looking for the world's brightest minds to join us in developing cutting edge research and solutions to the environmental and engineering challenges facing the offshore wind industry.
  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.
  Characterisation of cell death pathways upon activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE1alpha
  Dr M Schroeder
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A competition-funded Durham Doctoral studentship to investigate cell death pathways activated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is available in the group of Dr.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.
