  Does crop diversification influence the physical and chemical traits that attract pests and beneficial insects?
  Prof J Koricheva
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop diversification strategies such as intercropping and agroforestry are increasingly promoted as a means to enhance the sustainability of agriculture and ensure a stable food supply.
  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
  How does serotonin affect sexual behaviour in fish?
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a possible role for serotonin in the sand-castle building behaviour of cichlid fishes, behaviour carried out by males to attract females.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  Horizontal gene transfer in the evolution of insects: a genomic approach
  Dr L Henry, Prof RA Nichols, Dr JM Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Persistent chemical threats in the estuarine environment: sources and solutions to marine water quality challenges in the Native European Oyster
  Dr C Whitby, Dr B McKew, Dr T Cameron
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous and persistent environmental pollutants, which can enter the marine environment from many natural and anthropogenic sources.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.
  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  Identification of filamentous pathogens in leaves using Raman spectroscopy
  Dr P Goldberg Oppenheimer, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will tackle the complex issue of filamentous pathogens in leaves, with a specific target to identify key chemical indicators of Ash Dieback (AD) and Oak Powdery Mildew (OPM).
