  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.
  The global drivers of shifts in mutualistic dependence
  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.
  Behavioural and physiological responses to changing environments in wild grey seals (Halichoerus grypus)
  Dr S D Twiss
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms have evolved mechanisms to cope with natural stressors, but rapid environmental change is subjecting species to new threats or more unpredictable and extreme natural stressors.
  Using citizen science and landscape genomics to understand how interactions between species impact range expansion
  Dr J Drury, Dr A.C Brennan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As species’ ranges shift in response to human-induced global changes they are likely to come into contact and compete with species that they had not encountered previously.
  Is the Arctic an engine of phenotypic and cultural diversity?
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The latitudinal diversity gradient, a pattern of high species richness in tropical regions relative to temperate regions, is one of the most striking patterns of present-day biodiversity.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Epigenetic regulation of meiotic genes by the transcription factor Hac1i
  Dr M Schroeder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A self-funded PhD studentship to investigate how the transcription factor Hac1i achieves epigenetic regulation of early meiotic genes is available in the group of Dr.
  Local Tracking of Single Ions Dynamics at Solid-Liquid Interfaces
  Dr K Voitchovsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ions are everywhere in nature and technology. They play a crucial role in countless processes, from the salt we use in food to keeping the electrostatic balance in our bodies.
