  The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  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”.
  QUADRAT DTP: Global profiles of species declines and success in the era of climate change
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The alarming extinctions of species worldwide pose unprecedented challenges for wildlife and human wellbeing [1].
  Research opportunities in the Department of Archaeology

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Archaeology at York is a vibrant research community and a centre of excellent research-led teaching.
  QUADRAT DTP: Conservation implications of variation in reproductive traits among fragmented populations of tropical forest trees
  Prof D Burslem, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The persistence of plant populations in fragmented landscapes is dependent on adequate gene flow via seed and pollen dispersal.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project - Evolution and biodiversity conservation in Africa: teaching, training and outreach
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  QUADRAT DTP: Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Responses of fungal populations to habitat loss and creation: extinction debts and colonisation credits
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As habitat is lost due to land use change, species are lost from the landscape both locally and regionally. This loss of species does not all happen immediately and indeed, in some cases there can many years before some species eventually go extinct following land-use change.
  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.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
