  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.
  Climate change, microbiota, and speciation
  Dr T Price, Dr J Ferrai, Dr Z Lewis
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim. to understand the impact of high temperatures on gut microbes, and whether this will be a problem as the climate changes. Background.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal effects have important roles in a broad range of ecological and evolutionary processes, such as population dynamics, phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary responses to selection.
  Could heatwave impacts through reproduction damage insect populations? (GAGEUBIO20ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco, Dr I Bedford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Earth’s climate is changing, and heatwaves are becoming more frequent and extreme. Biodiversity is responding to these changes by shifting ranges, declining and going extinct, but the proximate driving mechanisms still remain poorly understood.
  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.
