  Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield, Dr M Vallejo-Marin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  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.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  How does supplemental feeding affect demography and reproductive fitness in endangered bird species on Mauritius?
  Prof J Groombridge, Dr J Ewen, Dr S Tollington, Dr C Raisin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deadline. 7th January 2020. Contact. Professor Jim Groombridge. https://www.kent.ac.uk/anthropology-conservation/people/482/groombridge-jim.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  Could heatwave impacts through reproduction damage insect populations? (GAGEUBIO20ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco, Dr I Bedford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Earth’s climate is changing, and heatwaves are becoming more frequent and extreme. Biodiversity is responding to these changes by shifting ranges, declining and going extinct, but the proximate driving mechanisms still remain poorly understood.
  Social and transgenerational effects of parasitism: potential impact in a stored product pest
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Prof N Colegrave
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will investigate the impact of infection on host and non-host members of a population across subsequent generations.
  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.
  Sociobiology on the fly; understanding social interactions in multispecies groups
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).
