  Agronomic investigations of Australian native rice species to support Indigenous enterprise development in the Northern Territory, Australia.
  Dr S Bellairs, Dr P Wurm
Application Deadline: 24 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the opportunity. This CRC Future Food Systems project focusses on agronomic investigations into Australian native rice. It is part of a broader research program into the commercialisation of Australian native rice species.
  Modelling Gas Turbine Blade Degradation in a High Fidelity Digital Twin
  Dr J Sumner, Dr N Simms
Application Deadline: 2 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,000 (tax free) plus fees* for four years.
  Behavioural and physiological responses to changing environments in wild grey seals (Halichoerus grypus)
  Dr S D Twiss
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms have evolved mechanisms to cope with natural stressors, but rapid environmental change is subjecting species to new threats or more unpredictable and extreme natural stressors.
  Is the Arctic an engine of phenotypic and cultural diversity?
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The latitudinal diversity gradient, a pattern of high species richness in tropical regions relative to temperate regions, is one of the most striking patterns of present-day biodiversity.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  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.
  The global drivers of shifts in mutualistic dependence
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.
  Using citizen science and landscape genomics to understand how interactions between species impact range expansion
  Dr J Drury, Dr A.C Brennan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As species’ ranges shift in response to human-induced global changes they are likely to come into contact and compete with species that they had not encountered previously.
  Conservation genomics of the European Polecat (DIPALMAUEI20ARIES)
  Prof F Di Palma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The European polecat is a medium-sized carnivore found across much of the United Kingdom. Once persecuted and found only in unmanaged forests of central Wales, it is now widespread across much of its former range.
  Understanding the impact of the ash dieback invasion of Europe (HALLE20DTP)
  Dr N Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is expected to lose the majority of its third most common tree species, ash (Fraxinus excelsior), to the ash dieback fungus (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) and this fungal invasion is estimated to cost Britain £15 billion.
  This is a test project
  Dr A Holliday, Prof D Stevenson
Applications accepted all year round

  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
