  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Can behaviour beat climate change? Quantifying the extent of variation in behavioural thermoregulatory behaviour, its evolutionary potential, and the strength and variation of selection on this behaviour
  Prof T Tregenza
Application Deadline: 16 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall, TR10 9FE, UK. Project description. Climate change poses a profound threat to biodiversity.
  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.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr 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.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Unravelling the Joint Evolution of Dispersal and Mating Behaviours in Spatially-Structured Populations Using Experimental Evolution
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 25 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  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.
  Experimental epidemiology using water fleas and their parasites
  Dr P Luijckx
Application Deadline: 5 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

I am looking for a motivated and creative PhD candidate who would be interested in applying to the Irish Research Council (IRC) for a 4-year PhD fellowship to be conducted at the Zoological Department of Trinity College, the University of Dublin.
