  Using multibeam sonar to monitor animal behaviour and environmental interactions at marine renewable energy sites
  Dr B Williamson, Prof V Nikora, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

To date, there are 8.5 GW of installed UK offshore wind capacity, and it is estimated 20% of current UK electricity demand could be met with wave and tidal stream sources.
  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.
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
  The role of physics in the foraging behaviour of leaf-cutter ants, the principal insect pest in the Neotropics

Merton College are seeking outstanding applicants for a DPhil scholarship to conduct research at the Department of Zoology on the behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds in the Oxford Navigation Group (OxNav) under the supervision of Professor Tim Guilford.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
