  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.
  State-dependent cooperation among male and female parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Regan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biparental care occurs when males and females cooperate to provide care for their joint offspring, and although relatively rare, this form of has evolved repeatedly in birds, mammals, amphibians, fishes and insects.
  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.
  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.
  Fully Funded Rothamsted / Swansea (BBSRC SWBio DTP) PhD Studentship: Mass spectroscopy imaging of plant-fungi interactions: understanding symbiosis for sustainable crop production
  Prof W Griffiths, Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) as part of the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  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.
  Assessing the diversity, drivers & importance of Megaira, intracellular symbiont of aquatic eukaryotes
  Prof G Hurst, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biology, ecology and evolution of eukaryotes is in part a product of their symbiotic interactions with microbes. Intracellular microbes, retained during cell division and reproduction, are particularly interesting, as they are selected to maintain and nurture their hosts.
  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.
  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.
