  QUADRAT DTP: The role of sexual selection in facilitating rapid adaptation to climate change
  Dr N Pilakouta, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is arguably the most significant threat to biodiversity in the 21st century. Animal populations are experiencing a period of unprecedented environmental change, leading to higher extinction rates.
  The role of sexual selection in the evolution of sex-biased gene expression
  Dr S Flanagan
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flanagan Lab at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is seeking outstanding applicants for a fully-funded PhD position to study sexual selection and transcriptomics.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Scholarships available for SECReT: The International Training Centre for Security and Crime Related Research Degrees

Funding Type

PhD Type

UCL SECReT is the international centre for training in security and crime related research degrees, the first centre of its kind in Europe.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Host-pathogen dynamics in the evolution of ageing and immunity
  Dr B Ashby, Dr N Priest
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.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
