  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  The genetics/genomics of adaptive evolutionary change
  Dr N Nadeau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The basic process of evolution by natural selection involves genetic changes that confer an advantage in survival or reproduction.
  PhD in evolutionary genetics
  Prof J Slate
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group integrates genomics approaches and tools with ecological data collected from long-term studies of vertebrates. We aim to understand how genetic variation is maintained and how evolutionary change occurs.
  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.
  PhD position in evolutionary biology, social supergene maintenance, University of Lausanne
  Prof M Chapuisat (-Delèze)
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A Ph.D. position in evolutionary biology is available in the group of Prof. Michel Chapuisat at the Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
  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.
  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.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Prof G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  PhD in conservation biology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group works on the assessment of species conservation status using data driven approaches. Using databases on species traits, ecology or trends, we using state-of-the-art modelling approaches to make predictions of future conservation status.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Prof A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  PhD in Plant Environmental Physiology
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of plant environmental physiology. Our research uses experiments with wild plants and field studies to address a range of questions about the biology of C 4 plants and savanna ecosystems.
