  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  (BBSRC DTP) The timing and modes of macroevolutionary change: molecules, morphology, and simulations
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Sansom, Dr M Sutton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macroevolution occurs over time spans of millions of years. Two approaches can be taken in identifying and understanding macroevolutionary patterns and processes - empirical and theoretical.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  From branch to forest to globe: How do trees choices regarding growth affect forest responses to increased carbon dioxide levels?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J Larsen, Dr B Smith, Prof B Medlyn
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forests of the future will be subjected to levels of carbon dioxide for which there is no analogue in the current world.
  Innovative Bioinformatics Pipeline Development for Microbiota Analysis
  Dr D H Lunt, Dr A Oates, Prof M Hardman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in metagenomics, particularly long-read sequencing, are delivering a wealth of new and detailed community level profiling data.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  SCENARIO - Understanding Acute Oak Decline using X-ray micro-tomography and leaf reflectance: linking reduced tree water transport capacity to changes in xylem and leaf cellular structure.
  Dr F Gerard, Dr G Barrett
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

First recorded in the UK in the early 1900’s, Acute Oak Decline (AOD) is widely recognised as a threat to native English oaks. Outbreaks of disease have gone through several historic and distinct episodes with the current, ongoing spread having started around 2002.
  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: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Hedgerow and field margin monitoring technologies: value and acceptability for agri-environment payments (IAF2008)
  Dr R Gaulton, Dr G Jones
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Public money for public goods is a common mantra within government. Proposed new agri-environment schemes are expected to move from a model of prescriptive management options to ones based on outcomes, in terms of preservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
