  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  A Tidal Clock: Circadian and Circatidal Rhythms in a Marine Intertidal Crustacean
  Dr D Wilcockson
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
This project is part of a competition funded through the Aberystwyth University ’AberDoc’ scheme (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/fees-finance/uk-eu/research-competition/) and is in collaboration with Leicester University (Professor Bambos Kyriacou) and Cambridge MRC-LMB (Dr Michael Hastings).
  The evolution of primate vocal signals: from call production to signal function
  Dr J Dunn, Dr C Wascher
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Understanding the molecular mechanism of post-transcriptional regulation in eukaryotas
  Dr M Oren, Dr S Aronov
Applications accepted all year round
A molecular biology laboratory is seeking highly motivated Ph.D./MSc candidates to study two projects related to understanding the role of post-transcriptional regulation in gene expression and cell function in Eukaryotas.
  Understanding parallel origins of industrial metal tolerance in Silene uniflora
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Cryptosporidium movement in water: impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  In silico modelling of parasite dynamics
  Prof O Jones
Applications accepted all year round
The management of infectious disease is a major concern for conservation of wild fish stocks and is a primary constraint on the viability and sustainability of farmed fish.
  War in the cabbage patch: a field test of metacommunity theory
  Prof J Bullock, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why do ecological communities vary in structure and dynamics across landscapes? Metacommunity theory suggests that this variation is caused by differences in species’ dispersal abilities, coupled with environmental and ecological filtering.
